Love Hurts Deeply

Love can be,

the utmost feeling –

send you reeling.

Brings to mind,

flowers bursting into bloom,

warm and kissed by the sun.

Gentle spring showers,

fresh morning dew,

everything so sparkling and new,

with the rising of the morning sun.

Love can heal

and mend broken hearts –

it has a universal power.

Love can,

fill your heart and soul,

with a warm glow.

Sound and music,

with color and beauty.

When you hear a lovely melody,

with words to stir your heart.

When you see a smile like no other

or hear lilting laughter –

that’s love

and its magic, delight, and joy –

full of passion and tender kisses.


Love can hurt and destroy,

like frozen winter rivers

and cold northern winds.

Love can be cruel,

shooting arrows piercing the heart,

that splinters

and shatters like a fine, porcelain vase.

Love hurts,

it can drive you to your knees

and leave behind such pain.

Dark clouds on a sunny day,

flowers dead and wilted –

alone with only tears for comfort.

Love hurts,

the rose having lost all its petals,

the thorny stem –

piercing fingertips, making them bleed.

Love hurts,

it wounds deep.

Losing sleep,

on long and lonely nights.

As sleep eludes

and nightmares,

take you on frightening flights.

When the heart,

keeps searching but not finding.

Love hurts,

when you’re sure,

there are no more stars in heaven

and the sun has gone away.

When songs have lost their charm,

when you feel that everything in this dreary world –

can do you harm.

When there seems nowhere to run,

no one to turn to

and the moon is just a nightlight in the sky.

When it seems that the world has stopped turning,

time has slipped through your fingers –

love hurts, love hurts and never seems to stop…..
