Did I Hurt You Somehow

Heart
Heart | Source

After I put the last poem written in my teens online entitled, "Whisper," I realized that possibly there were others from the vault many may enjoy. This one is possibly even more angst-ridden than the last but do keep in mind it written while I was a teenager. While I may have worn my heart on my sleeve back in those days I still respect and can remember what I was going through at the time. I still identify myself in it to a degree. Hope everyone enjoys it and feel free to give feedback.


DID I HURT YOU SOMEHOW

I knew what I wanted

So why did I settle

Our lives are so fragile

Why do they meddle

Is everything my doing

Is this all my fault

If you say it's not

Than why do you insult

I've tried all my best

But it's not enough

I sit alone crying

Why's this so tough

I'm drowning in sorrow

Your voice on the phone

You show no emotion

Now I'm all alone


You know all I want

You know what I need

Why are you angry?

So angry with me

Please don't do this

Your changing so much

It's not for the better

Your ice to my touch

Why do you hurt me?

I'm not a crutch

Why won't you stop?

I love you so much

I'm so very sorry

Did I hurt you somehow?

Please don't do this

What's left for me now?

Oh the memories! Thanks for the nostalgia. Teenagers are so dramatic. Trouble is, I STILL relate. Drama queen? Maybe...Again, thanks you and voting up!

KrystalD - It was a pretty emotional time and I would say this poem was right on the button of my teenage angst at the time. Thanks for commenting.

Heck do I so remember my very tender teen years when I was so in love with so many young ladies. I think I helped them break my heart so often by having so many. I slowed down as I grew older and the pain subsided as well.

I was able to keep my heart in better condition:-) Nicely worded I saw the imagery and a teen as sad as I was with his broken heart and pain from being told it's over. Well done.

saddlerider1 - Glad you could relate and happy you are able to keep your heart in better condition these days. It does bring back painful memories but hopefully good ones as well.

Being a teenager, I can still find common ground with the feelings emitted by this wonderful poem. I admire the flow and beauty of it as well. Voted up, awesome, and beautiful.

It seems though, that many good poems come out of "the vault"s of everyone's writing (I have had my own share of this experience), things we would have died had we shared at the time of writing them, but later find to be quite good and worth sharing with others.

toys-everywhere - you are right and that is how I feel exactly. At the time these were very private a way to get out the feelings and express myself. I kept it to myself. But now so many things have happened and my life has traveled so many tangents I look back and it seems a lifetime ago. I am able to share now and be ok with it.

Wonderful. I remember wanting to please everyone especially my friends in high school and winding up not pleasing anybody and sometimes wondering why a friend wouldn't speak to me for a couple of days.

Very sad. It is always good to look back and remember and feel the joy of overcoming.

Wow - what memories come flooding back when reading this poem. From the comments here looks like there were a lot of us remembering teen age love lost. As this work seems to have survived the time machine I'd say it was classic! Voted UP and enjoyed very much. Best, Sis

Superb work. Teen love is always a special love because the experiences will move you either forward or stop you dead in your tracks.

lisadpreston - you are right this freeze frame, snapshot of the past allows me to see how I used to be and see just how I've changed. A part of me is still there in that moment but many aspects of my personality have grown beyond that. It is the past after all, but it is interesting to look back.

It amazing how teenage love is similar for most people. Nostalgic indeed.

Senoritaa - I marvel at that fact as well. When I resurrected these poems I wasn't sure they would make much of an impact. But I am pleasantly surprised to see people responding to them :)

This is a great hub. I do not have these feelings, and never have; I guess I'm too independent. But, please, speak to those who share these needs. Sometimes we are the only Bible other people read. Loved It. This is deep!!!

carolyn a. ridge - If you've been spared loves sting maybe you've been lucky I don't know but keep in mind though I wrote it in my teens so things were very much a bundle of emotions. I think as I've matured I've worked through things. These days I am content with life and accept things as they come. Can't say that nothing could upset me but I think I am well equiped to deal with life's trials :)
