Broken (inverted etheree)

You hit me the hardest, wounded deeply
Break my soul and destroy my spirit
Crushed me down and left me bleeding
Why do you love me so much?
And treat me so damn kind?
Yet, breaks my being
Tear me apart?
Why do I
Love you
Still?

        Some questions are best left unanswered
        Some answers will unfold when the time comes
        For now, all we do is wear our love on our skin
        And hope love shows us the answer within

    i love, love this! I melt with kindness shown to me and I understand how you say and feel about being broken. Only people we care about deeply can do this to us, wound us, hurt us, yet we remember their moments of kindness and we feel such love. This is my favourite poen of yours, so beautiful in its tragedy,

        I just wrote to someone on this same thing. we never lose anything of ourselves by loving someone, its soul enriching to be able to love freely even though we get hurt. its truly worth it in the end.

  17. A truly beautiful poem. I love poems that are able to convey powerful meanings with few lines, like this one. I also like the descending order in which you’ve arranged the text.

  18. Because pain needs an identity to cling onto. True love doesn’t cause pain, nor does it close doors. It opens them like exploring a new house. This sounds more like heartbreak or a lack of acceptance than love.

    Admitting to my own hypocrisy in the previous paragraph. It takes time to get to that point of acceptance of course, but any pain isn’t cause by love, but more a lack of acceptance to whatever is, that maybe the external love is gone, and depleting the internal love.

    Hope you feel better dude.
