When you came to me baby you were somebody fine
Not the type of guy to try and use a cheap line
You really care-me not just feel like an act
So how do you explain the fact that
You’re hurting me; oh your love is hurting me

When I first stared into your sinister eyes
I failed to see into your brilliant disguise
I felt weak; I tried to hide
I felt pain, I wasn’t quite your size
Your love is hurting me; oh yes you're hurting me

You’re hurting me. Your love is hurting me
Oh, it’s hurting, hurting, hurting, hurting me…

I don’t mind a game when you love me like you do
But this intense kind of pain, it tears me right in two
You simply call my name I do what you want me to
Sometimes I feel ashamed, I get used to you

I love you like crazy, but you do it so rough
To be with you baby is dangerous stuff
I’ve learned wild things that I wouldn’t dare to show
But there’s something now baby I think you should know
Youre hurting me; oh, he’s hurting me…
He’s hurting me. Your love is hurting me
Oh, it's hurting, hurting, hurting, hurting me…

I don’t mind a game when he love me like him do
But this intense kind of pain, it break me right in two
You simply call my name I do what you want me to
Sometimes I feel ashamed, I get used to you, ooh…

When you came to me baby you were somebody fine

Not the type of guy to try and use a cheap line

You really cared it didn't feel
like an act

So how do you explain the fact that

You’re hurting me; oh you're  hurting me

When I first stared into your sinister eyes

I failed to see into your brilliant disguise

I felt weak; I tried to hide

I felt pain, I wasn’t quite your size

Your love is hurting me; oh yes you're  hurting me

You’re hurting me. Your love is hurting me

Oh, it’s hurting, hurting, hurting, hurting me…

I don’t mind a game when you love me like you do

But this intense kind of pain, it tears me right in two

You simply call my name I do what you want me to

Sometimes I feel ashamed, Ill get used to you

I love you like crazy, but you do it so rough

To be with you baby is dangerous stuff

I’ve learned wild things that I wouldn’t dare to show

But there’s something now baby I think you should know

You're hurting me; oh, yes you're hurting me…

You're hurting me. Yiur love is hurting me

Oh, you're  hurting, hurting, hurting, hurting me…

I don’t mind a game when he love me like him do

But this intense kind of pain, it break me right in two

You simply call my name I do what you want me to

Sometimes I feel ashamed, I get used to you, ooh…

Repeat chorus

Hurting
Gods1son Dec 2019
There's so much hurting in the world today
Countries are hurting other countries
Governments are hurting their own people
Employers are hurting their employees
Employees do the same to their employers
Parents are hurting their kids & vice versa
Spouses are hurting their other halves
Friends are hurting one another
Even strangers are hurting strangers
People are hurting the environment
The environment is hurting the people
Sicknesses are ravaging people's bodies
Individuals also hurt their own self
I'm guilty of some of these myself
My diagnosis of these hurts is self-centeredness —
People care about themselves alone!
My prescription is more and more doses
of love & empathy.
It never stops hurting.
That hole he left.
Everyone says it takes time..
..that I’ll feel better eventually.
But I won’t.

It never stops hurting.
That ache in my chest.
There’s a feeling like so much was left unsaid.
But in reality, it still would have happened.
He stopped loving me.

How do you move on?
From the person you can’t, or don’t want to, live without.
How do you move on?
When all you want to do is go back in time.

It never stops hurting.
Don’t believe the well-meant lies.
There won’t be another special someone.
Not when all you see in others,
Are reflections of him

It never stops hurting.
And he’s in everything you see.
He’s in every thought, every memory, every song.
You want to feel whole,
but you never will.

How do you move on?
When all you want is his kiss again.
How do you move on?
When you can still imagine his ring on your finger.

It never stops hurting.
When you lose your other half.
And eventually you decide to just wait.
Hope he comes back.
Because you’re that pathetic.

It never stops hurting.
No matter how many pills you pop.
No matter how many calories you drop.
No matter how many scars you carve.
It never stops hurting.

So why bother trying to get better,
when it never stops?
Inspired by a low point I experienced lately, about being thrown aside by someone I loved.  Comments for improvement are more than welcome.

I'm hurting
I don't show it-I smile sunshines at you
I laugh but inside I'm hurting so bad
I look at your smiling face, hear your laughter, I smell your scent and imagine her doing the same and
I'm hurting
I hear your promises, your I love you's, your forevers and
I'm hurting
I know that once you looked at her the same way you look at me, that the things you do with me and the way you kiss me and by God
I'm hurting
Knowing you've discovered the unknown with her, that your writings and knowledge is from her, that at one point you gave her your heart so easily, that I'm just second
I'm hurting
that one day you can let go of me as easily as you let go of her, that one day you'll want to run back to her because she's given you more than I ever could
My insides being ripped apart, my throat shut, my eyes pouring
I'm hurting
Because second place still doesn't win
And that how I know I love you, although now I'm not even sure what love is
The risks we take in life are sometimes made without second thought. Although sometimes we don't know how far we have fallen because once we look up we've already hit rock bottom. And that's love

I'm not sure if anyone has ever lived through as much as Teagan Carr has. I say this because, to be completely honest, I have no idea what happened to her.

One minute she was this daring and fiery woman who radiated independence. Then one day, she just... changed.

It wasn't noticeable so much at first. It started with her eyes.
They lost a little light, and then her head lost a little fight and she began to have these thoughts. She started to believe that she wasn't beautiful or special.

She began to insult herself. I mean she never personally told me this stuff, but it was obvious. You tend to notice things like this when suddenly your girlfriend won't look into your eyes. You start to see the pain in her face when she tries to smile but it doesn't come out. You start to notice when she refuses to leave her house, and refuses to eat.

Then suddenly, before you know it, she's a completely different person. she's quiet and sad all the time, constantly pushing you away, and you can't take it anymore.

But you see, I couldn't give up. if you saw her you would understand why. she looked miserable. I wanted to help her and she needed me.
Plus, she didn't have anyone else.

________

The ocean calms my restless soul. The beautiful mist that sprayed on my skin helped clear my mind, and I felt at ease.

"Isn't this lovely?" I whispered more so to myself, trying to reassure my body. but then Teagan answered.

"Yes, it is." she said calmly. "it's refreshing."

I looked back at her small body wrapped in thick blankets sitting on the dock.

Compared to the ocean surrounding us, she was far more beautiful and I couldn't help but smile to her.

She returned it briefly than looked away. she was wringing her hands and blinking rapidly.

"Things will be different here, love", i said moving to squat down beside her. "Everything will get better. give it some time."

She nodded her head and then rested it on my shoulder.

"I love you Kai," she said.
"I love you too," I returned.

~She was beautiful. The sea was beautiful. the sun was setting, and the stars came out.~

________


The first night in our new home in Alaska was hard. Teagan and I each rented our own motel rooms across from each other seeing how we were only eighteen and not married. however, I ended up sitting in her room all night long, holding her small lithe body in my arms. she wash shaking and shivering, and my heart broke for her.

We had left California on a boat together. she left because she was hurting, while I left because I couldn't stand to see her hurting anymore.

"What happened to you, darling?" I asked just like I did every night since she changed.

"Nothing" was her usual answer, but tonight she was quiet, like she was about to spill open or explode. but she remained quiet.

I sighed and pulled her closer. her face was pressed against my beating heart and I tried to pump some of my life in her.

"Please,love,talk to me."
Silence.
"Please..."
Silence.

~the room was stuffy, yet cold. the lights were dim, and the carpets were old.~
________

The next day there was no change. Teagan looked as dead as ever, yet so full of life. It just wasn't visible, but I knew it was still within her.

I knew her personality well enough. She didn't just leave, she was still there. it was just that something blocked her mind. something held the truth back and she needed help spilling it out.

So when I got back from the corner gas station with two cups of coffee and two Krispy Kreme doughnuts, I sat with her.

"Hi", I said.
"Hi."
"I love you."
"I love you as well."
"Then help me understand."
"Understand what?"
"Why your hurting."

Silence

~the room was shrinking, my head was hurting, and she shook with fear.~

________

The next night was hard. I slept in my own room till I heard her screaming. I ran to her room and found her still asleep but thrashing about.

"No,don't," she was whispering, her throat tight and scratchy. "please don't take me! Let me stay, Please!"

I rushed to her side and tried to hold her down.

"Teagan,love, its me, Kai."
She stilled at the sound of my voice.
"Oh,Kai," she said through streaming tears.

I picked her up and kissed her soft brown hair.

Looking into her watery hazel eyes I whispered, "what's wrong darling?"

Silence.

Then...

"I don't know," she said.
"Who were you yelling at?"
"I don't know"
"Please let me in"

Silence again.

~her face was wet, mine was sweaty. her eyes were wild, mine were heavy.~

________

"I'll tell you now," she whispered three days later. "I'll tell you why I'm hurting so much, but you have to listen closely."

"Okay."
"I'm not."
"Your not what?"
"Hurting. you are."

"Really?" I asked scoffingly. "Really? That's why I freaking followed you to the cursed Alaskan tundra? Listen Teagan, I came here with you to protect and help you! Your the one that's hurting."

I was angry. No, infuriated.

"It's all you," she whispered in my ear. "it's all you Kai. your beating yourself up over the past. its all in your head."

"What are you talking about?"
"I'm not Teagan."
"Yes, you are."
"No. Teagans dead.
"No she's not. your her. your-"

I blinked. she was gone.
Teagan had disappeared.

~the room was spinning, my head hurt. the demons were winning, my eyes burnt.~

________

I had passed out, but when j woke up I remembered.

Teagan was gone.

Not the Teagan from last night, but the real one.

She had...
She had... well I can't remember the details.

But I do remember that she left. to a better place, mind you. she was totally safe, fine and dandy.

My mind was jut playing tricks on me, making me think she was still hurting, but no, she's fine.

I smiled at that.

I remembered then, what those nice men in white coats had said. they told me she had bled a lot, but all in all she was better off now.
They said she was okay and safe now.

I remember my mother explaining it, something about a glorious home with hello floors and beautiful people working there who smile all the time.

I remember them explaining That I couldn't see her because it wouldn't be fair to everyone else I know. they said that I had to stay till it was my time.

Oh boy I miss her.
But at least I still have the memories.

________

I'll see her agin soon the me. In white coats said. I thought that'd be nice, and smiled.

"So, Teagan," I said to her in my mind. "I'll see you soon. goodnight, wherever you are."

________

Then I opened my eyes;just a peek.

There was a bunch of people staring at me. I recognized some of them. I saw my mom and dad, and my brothers.
They were crying and I don't know why.

I squinted at the scratchy sheets that were pulled up to my chest. and then I heard the beeping from a machine behind me that kept getting slower and slower.
Strange.

Suddenly I remembered something about Teagan. she had loved me but not enough to stay with me. then I remembered the red in the tub, and the body floating there.
(But the men in white coats had come and helped her, so she was fine.)

________

The beeping got quieter.
It got slower too.
My eyes became to Harvey and they snapped shut.

________

Then a miracle happened!
Teagan appears in my white room.

"Your back!" I yelled smiling at her.

"Why'd you do this Kai?" She asked softly and quietly.

She was crying. why didn't she seem happy to see me?

"Well," I began. "I did what you did to leave. I wanted to see you again and join you at the home."

"Why?"

"Cause I love you. but it's okay, I didn't hurt much." I said smiling through tears. "the men in white came so I figured they'd take care of me like they did you."

She looked at me with an expression filled with love, pity, and grief.

"Well then come my love, it's time to go."

She helped me out of bed and it all went white.

I saw the yellow floors of the hallway.

....Then the beeping stopped.

Something's Hurting
Q Oct 2013
I am empty
I have nothing to give
And this feeling prevails in me
Affecting how I live

Something is hurting
Deep inside of me
And there is no direction
In the chaos, the insanity

Something is aching
Perhaps behind my eyes
But everything is okay
lies, lies, lies

Something is throbbing
In the recesses of my brain
And I reach and reach
And find nothing but pain

Something is tired
Ready to be put to rest
Knife at my throat
One last breath

Something is hurting
A dull, aching pain
And I'd give anything
Never to feel again

Something's hurting
Can you help me?
Something's hurting
Make it stop, please.

Something's fed up
Blood down my arms
Something's crying
With only itself to harm

Something is empty
Just a bag of organs and blood
Something is wondering
If it really could

Something's resolving
Something's got a gun
Something's going on
Something's finally won

Because Something's hurting
And nobody cares
And when Something's fading fast
Who will be there?

Crying,
Thinking,
I want it to stop,
I wanna stop hurting,
Please help me stop hurting.

I am hurting
Deep in my soul

Pain
Tortured
Memories

Make it stop!
How do I make it stop?

Tormented
Relentless

I am hurting
Deep in my soul!

Hurting becomes kindness
If you give
Sadness becomes happiness
If you give
The words become a song
If you sing.

My end will be pleasure
If you live
My dreams will come true
If you keep smiling
Hurting becomes kindness
If you give.

Morning takes away darkness
If there aren't any clouds
Eyes can see the havens
If you want
Hurting becomes kindness
If you give.

I have known you are mine
After all I melt around you
I won't think about myself
If I am brave
Hurting becomes kindness
If you give.

I forget all of my mistakes
When you look at me
You can tell your secrets
If you have any
Hurting becomes kindness
If you give.

— The End —
