“Hurt” – By Egattoc

I never knew

How much it would hurt

All those years ago

To now

Being in love

Should be a pleasure

And of course it is

But then tonight

I feel the hurt

I never thought

That it would hurt so much

Not every night

But there are those times

Those lonely nights

When you  come to me

And that love hurts

Tears cannot be held back

The pain in my heart for you

Makes the tears fall

If only love did not hurt

  1. I recall someone saying that if it didn’t hurt, the relationship wasn’t worth it. I suppose it gets back to the quote “’tis better to have loved and lost, than not to have loved at all”. But things always change, and there’s always the promise of a new lover on the horizon.

      1. I used to think that I lost my one, true love years ago. Then I came to the realization that I had much more capacity to love and to be loved left. It only takes that first pensive step to take you on your new journey.
