Some Things Hurt So Much

There are times that something hurts so much inside,
So I think to myself how wonderful it would be to just hide.
This way I wouldn’t have to see my face on the mirror,
And my shadow could move unseen and become someones hero.

This pain is so rooted inside my heart that it cannot go away,
As the mind does not want to rebuilt while it wanders like a stray.
A feeling of depression that eats away with the memory of an event,
Lingering inside my brain everytime it flashes before me as I try to prevent.

There are times that I do know what hurts so much inside of me,
However; by the time I realize that the pain is in me there is no place to be.
I have lost my way and I do not recognize the steps I took to get here,
My body trembles and stumbles back on my feet with a self inflicted fear.

Sometimes I hear a voice and proceed to the direction from where it came,
In the believe that the angel and the person inside of you are both the same.
I am waiting to hear from you again tonight so that I can hear you heart,
Calling my name to return back into your arms so that we may never part.

    This is so painfully beautiful Oscar… wish so much that hurt would go away…

  • Just hearing from you makes me smile and in those moments the pain does seem to go away. I still hope you continue to communicate reguardless of the way I have been behaving with my emotional let downs. The holidays bring me so much loneliness and I might sound like my writings is all I care about, but your friendship is valued so much that it is so hard to express. Thank you for the hugs and for showing so much patience to return to my work and reading and commenting with such kindness. Your friendship is so dear to me, and I hope I can return the favor and not be so selfish with the way I have been to slow to respond. Bless you and know that you are a wonderful person, stay that way, and It is so wonderful knowing you have been there for me constantly, stay that way, it means the world to me.

    This makes me think that your wife is your little Angel coming to you in her sweet innocence….trying to take away your pain. She is with you Oscar. I know it. Release your pain…..let it go….you don’t need it anymore. She is trying to take it away from you. There is no guilt when you are truly hurting for the things you believe were wrong but never wanted to happen. You are a good loving man. Please believe that. We love you.

  • You are more than too kind with the way you think, bless you for your caring ways. I hope your holidays will be filled with wonderful gifts and thoughts and with the family around you, it is a gift that is priceless, bless you always and I hope you stay in contact and that my selfishness does not ruin our friendship.

    Oscar this is truly a pain from the very depths. I am hurting so much for you. You have lost a beautiful part of you in this physical world but she is not lost to you completely. Chose to view the memories as only the wonderful treasures she gave to you and made apart of you. Choose to be happy in those moments you are with her in your life. The key word here is choose Oscar. Sadness can be a cancer on our souls and much worse on our spirits. It is the holidays and who among us has not lost someone close and are hurting right now. What will carry all of us through is the happiness their lives left behind. Love you Oscar

  • I truely try to do as you say, but I guess that I am still weak from all of the emotions that continue to haunt me. Your words are excellent advice, but your patient here is so stubborn, yes, me. I thank you so much for always caring with the upmost way of giving me good advice. I value what you say, and respect the meanings behind it, but I have to get through this soon. I am so thankful that you are still here reading my work and having the patience to put up with my selfishness, but this is who I am. I do not hide behind mirrors, and to accept me as I am is so kind of you. Please know that I acknowledge your kind heart that always extends a hand to make me feel better. I am blessed that you are here listening to my emotions and have not run away after the things I post. I sometimes wonder why I do it, many times I hold my work here for long periods of time without posting the enormous amount of writing, however; you seem to make me smile and that it is alright. Thank you and I hope that you have your family around you too during these holidays and I wish you the best of all that can bring you happiness. May you be blessed with gifts that reach the heart and make you the special person that you are. I know you are special to me, and I thank you always for the help you extend towards me. Please keep in touch and hope to hear from you soon.
