Love Hurts A Lot……..

Love Hurts A Lot…


I loved our knotted fingers,

Happily drowning in your backwards embrace,

Not bothering to fill the silence

We joked about being Romeo and Juliet.

We pulled each other through, day to day

But just as quickly pushed away

Ripping apart the binding tendrils

We can’t grow them back now because of her.

It was unlike you, but you don’t regret it.

Why did you settle for less than plan A?

I want you to be happy with me,

Don’t be better with her, okay?

Reading through the thoughts you’d written down and given to me

I enjoyed your words, your honesty,

Your beliefs, your music, your emotion, your touch,

Your phenomenal self. Now, that all is fading.

Your new language pierces my skin, were you ever honest?

The music brings back memories, all which make me cry.

Your touch is gone and so are you.

The you I want.

  1. Gee, I don’t think I was that articulate about my feelings at age 15. I probably just cried.

    • These teens I work with are so articulate when they are given the opportnity to discuss how they feel.
      Thanks for reading and sharing.

  2. Wow… that was so beautiful, it nearly made me cry. The first time you fall in love…. I think it always hurts. Which doesn’t make anything any better… but it’s true.

  3. The bittersweet of first love…something you will always remember and grow from. Give time, time to heal 🙂

  4. Wow! That’s beautiful

    My daughters first love broke her heart by telling her it was over via a txt message.Watching her go through that first heartache was the most horrible painful thing for me as a mum.
    When she looked at me and said “mum it really actually physically hurts,please help make it go away” I have never felt so helpless.First love can be so beautiful and yet so painful.
    Never before had I wished so hard for my words and my cuddles to work magic.Slowly but surely and ever so thankfully they did.

    • Oh so sad and via text too. All the blogs here under teenagers speak have all been written by teens I work with. It is so hard that first love, the pain, the tears, so pleased to hear that with your words and cuddles all is better now Nx.

        Hopefully when you work with teens you can get them to see how much more it hurts when they break up with someone via txt.There is no closure.So many unanswered questions and so it takes longer to get over.
        I think it is great what you do.Teens need all the help they can get.Especially if they cant get it from home.xx

        • Thanks I just try and put myself in their shoes and remember that my teens years were fairly tough too. I have to listen a lot and hug a lot xx
