The Truth Hurts So Much

Updated on August 10, 2013

I put my heart and soul on the line,

Hoping I could somehow make you mine,

These feelings I have for you are real and strong,

And from the very first day that you came along,

You brought rays of sunshine into the dark,

You and you alone hold the key to my heart

I’ve tried to tell you countless times how I feel,

To tell you that my heart is yours to steal,

But nothing I do seems to work for me,

I've tried all I know I can't make you see,

That no one will ever love you like I do,

And there is no other for me it’s only you,

Your beautiful brown eyes they haunt my mind,

An accidental touch of your hand sends shivers down my spine,

Your voice causes my heart to race,

And when you call my name it picks up the pace,

The way you smile and the way you talk,

It's the way you stand and the way you walk,

The sweet sound of your laughter is a beautiful song,

It lifts me to places and heights unknown,

These things are why I love you so,

I could hold back no longer I had to let you know,

It has been extremely tough hiding it all these years,

Afraid to speak out always surrendering to my fears,

Fear that I would never be good enough to love you,

That you deserved so much better than I could do,

I want to take you in my arms and make everything better,

Tell you how much I love you and will forever,

I wanted to make all of your pain go away,

And share the heavy burden you carry everyday,

I feel pain whenever you are hurting,

When you are sad to me it’s disconcerting,

Watching you cry breaks my heart and makes me mad,

At how someone could treat a beautiful angel this bad,

I want to protect you and keep you safe from harm,

Wrapped up in my arms all cozy and warm,

But none of this means anything to anyone but me,

If the love isn’t mutual this is how it will be,

I will sit here and pine for you forever and a day,

A piece of my broken heart will forever be astray,

Always out there somewhere almost close enough to touch,

But it’s just out of reach and it hurts so damn much,

To know I will never hold you close to me or be worthy of your love,

Feels like some sort of punishment sent to me from above,

Like somewhere in the past I have done such horrific deeds,

That I am paying for now and that planted the seeds,

For this terrible crop I am forced to harvest on this day,

Knowing that you will never feel the same way,

But no matter what happens I will love you forever,

And hopefully someday this heartache I feel will get better,

But I have always been taught don’t be sorry for the truth,

So I will never ever apologize for saying I love you.

      Your pouring out your soul with this poem is very powerful and touching. It has a fantastic ebb and flow to it which could be put to music.
