Hurts

So every so often, life throws curveballs at me and to cope, I write poems/song lyrics. My second marriage (which I don’t like to admit to) was nothing but lies and betrayals and didn’t realize just how bad till I had been gone from him for about 2 years! It’s funny when you’re in an abusive relationship you try to defend your partner and deny to everyone including yourself about how bad it is, but after you separate, each month that goes by you discover more and more just how bad it really was. This here was my way of coping over a year ago (may have been 2 years ago?):

Hurts

Hard to put into words everything in my heart;
The past keeps haunting me, it’s tearing me apart.
Bottled up emotions, secrets of a nightmare past,
And no one I can trust to stand by me on this path.

There are wars overseas and behind closed doors,
We smile and endure till we can take no more.

There are scars on the outside, but the scars within,
We’ll fight through our lifetime, to the very end.

Hurts, hurts, how it hurts so very bad;
Life’s so painful when memories flood back.
Like a dam that’s been broken and the emotions rush in,
But you’re right beside me until the very end.

So hard to rise above the painful memories,
The things we want to forget:
Words said, things done, horrors seen…
Burned into our minds and hearts, and down to our soul.
We need a steadfast friend, and a hand to hold.

Hurts, hurts; how it hurts so very bad;
Life’s so painful when memories flood back.
Like a dam that’s been broken and the emotions rush in;
But you’re right beside me until the very end.

Through the trials, you love me forever…
Through the pain, you love me for always…
Till the ends of time, you’ll be my truest friend.
