Painful Love

Painful Love

A Poem by De'Andre

This is the very first poem that I have ever written. Never thought I'd ever feel like this in my life....... That is until I did.


Out of the shadows and into the light

From the sunniest day to the darkest night

Travels an aura that troubles my soul

Constantly trying to swallow me whole


This aura is strong and weakens me so

It's contantly following me wherever I go

It's in my mind and in my heart

Each and everyday it tears me apart


What is this aura that follows me?

It's blurring my vision; I can hardly see

One by one my friends and family disappear

When this aura is around me nothing is clear


I have no idea what I should do

So I turned to the man in the sky of blue

"What's happening to me?" I asked the man above

He told me it was nothing, just a painful love

Author's Note

In case it wasn't clear, I was in love and that love made me do and say alot of things that potentially destroyed relationship that I had with friends and family. The idea of rejection is what made it all difficult. In any case, this was the first poem I ever wrote. Let me know what you think.

Love is an emotion that makes us do terrible things, it's the loss of love that turn some ordinary men, into complete and total lunatics. It's the lack of love that make some men...."Psychopaths." Never doubt or underestimate the power of love. Great write and flow. Executed well. Quite remarkable for your first.

When I read your creations the craziness of my household is blocked out and I can hear nothing but your clear and powerful voice that these masterpieces bring (which is a serious achievement). I love your work. Just absolutely adore it.

Superb rhyming, emotionally deep and truly heartfelt.
Isn't it sad that some of the greatest writes come from
the most painful situations in ones life...beautifully done.

The man above was very wise. We search for answers sometime and we know the answers. I like this poem. The description made the tale very interesting. A very good ending to a excellent poem.
