This Feeling Hurts

A Poem on Love

5799
This Feeling Hurts
Ronny Salerno

This feeling hurts. I must declare

That love is odd, and we don’t know.

I want freedom, but it is rare.

The only way: just stop. Follow.


You’ll never see if you don’t show

The feelings hidden in your bare

And exposed heart. The pain will grow.

This feeling hurts. I must declare.


I’m filled with fear that she will stare

at me and say, “Not you.” Although

I’m paralyzed, I will declare

That love is odd, and we don’t know.


The trap of fear will stop and throw

Your life into a solar flare.

You may burn bright, but life will slow.

I want freedom, but it is rare.


Despite the fear, I want to dare

To say what’s on my mind, to go

and say what I still want to share.

The only way: just stop. Follow.

This feeling hurts.

Heart on a Wet Sleeve

No one prepares you for the honeymoon phase wearing off

Heart on a Wet Sleeve

Let's start off with the simple fact that God made everyone differently. That statement could not be more evident. We try to embrace our differences and set ourselves apart from the rest of the world. What that doesn't prepare us for is when we yearn for a characteristic of someone else. For example, have you ever met someone who can experience this great heart ache and hardly shed a tear? This person just had their heart ripped out and they find a way to carry themselves through it with great composure. Well, not all of us have that desirable trait. Some of us wear our hearts on our wet sleeves. When a person has their heart on their sleeve, it can be viewed as a good thing, that the individual isn't shallow. However,
