Once Hurt, I'm Gone

Once Hurt, I'm Gone

A Poem by QuietPoet

Once Hurt, I’m Gone

She looked at me

As I sat on her bed

Looking down at the sheets

Playing with my fingers

Talking about life

She lets me know

That I am a strong woman

And I keep whatever

I’m going through inside

I don’t ever let anything out

No emotion, no tears, no hurt

Little does she know, I do..

She looks into my eyes

And tells me

That I can always come to her

No matter what it is, she’s there

I looked away, as a tear formed

And she didn’t notice

I said to her that
I deal with things my own way

My emotions don’t come out

Around all of you

Its just the person I’ve become

You’ll always see the strong side, never the weak

I’ve always been that way, always will be

She sighed as I told her

I looked back down to the sheets

She asked me about what happened

To the guy that cheated on me

And how I dealt with it

I told her I didn’t cry, once

Its just his loss

She looked at me, again

She told me, that she notices

Whenever someone hurts me

I’m gone, the moment they do

She couldn’t describe me any better then that

And she has seen that over and over again

I looked up at her

I’m okay, mom..

I promise.

A very good conversation. Those private words will stay with us. I like the feel and the story in your words,. Each of us accept pain in our own way. A very good ending. A excellent poem.

very raw emotions from the heart and soul. sometimes people heal in their own way. very well expressed.

Very sad indeed... it is hard to forgive someone hurts you but must remember everyone is human and makes mistakes so eventually doing that will leave you with no one.
