My Three Little Words

You. Hurt. Me
my three little words
in these little words
is the secret to my pain
the secret to my disillusionment

You. Hurt. Me
but you can now rejoice
your words of venom
hit the mark
your indifference
bull's eye brilliance

You. Hurt. Me
you managed it
you got even
you got it out of your system
your jealousy
broke me
but you can't see
your own little flaws
get out the word claws

You. Hurt. Me
I'm going to leave
don't bother to grieve
that's ok
I know now how you play

You. Hurt. Me
My three little words
I love you
Forget me not

You. Hurt. Me
three little words
and my world is torn apart
and the tears threaten to fall
you heartless soulless poet

You. Hurt. Me
I'm done
with this place
with your face
you need grace
I need space


You. Hurt. Me

    To be hurt is to learn, an experience of self through others that demonstrates the strength of our heart and character...please don't leave us Beloved Poetess...heal with the ones who truly love you Eileen...J.A.B.

    wow! i have no idea what this is about but from the comments i assume that someone's comment on a poem of yours was very hurtful. i'll never understand why someone would write a non-supportive comment on this site at all - if you don't like what someone's written, there's no need to write something negative about it. i hope you will reconsider because you know that you have many fans here, eileen, and i'm surely one of them!

    though I have never met you, I am sadden by your leaving . . . your words and the pain you describe echo back to the beginning of time . . . your three words will continue to be spoken by generations to come . . . they will need to know . . . hope. May you find the space to heal and then come back swinging (that is writing)! All the best.
