Why Can't You See How I Hurt?
Author: Brett


What is there left to live for?
When your closest ones are aren't there for you any more
It hurts me more and more each day
That my friends have no idea what I want to say

I know it sounds selfish of me to want some notice
But I give so much I think I deserve this
A little talk from time to time
Would make all the difference in this world of mine

I try not to let any of my emotions show
Hiding my tears that grow and grow
People say time heals all wounds
But I can't help but think my insides will die soon

I can't help myself, I need someone to hold me
I need to be free, alive, no longer lonely
How can I get you guys to see?
The emotions and feelings running deep inside me

wonderful sadness

I can picture you on a beach looking out into the crashing waves yearning for more... A need to be heard and acknowledged is an important emotional feeling... I know there are lots of people listening to your words now.. And one day soon someone will wave from downshore of you and your heart will be filled.... The last line it a total kicker.. Great poem

Feels like you wanna burst, explode, so that someone will SEE the intense pain, the agony of emotions flowing like the Mediterranean sea! If only they would give you attention, instead of abandoning you, as if you're nonexistant! LOL! Real great....I can hear your faint cry, deep in the night! Darn good poem! Smiles, Meridian
