Sarah, I totally know what you are saying! There is much meaning and confusion in the four letters H-U-R-T!
what she said you can relate to if you lost someone close.
i know what she is going through!!!!!!!!
When I read this poem, I cried. It reminds me of 2 years when my boyfriend [also my best friend] died. This is an outstanding poem that I think lots of people, who have lost someone, should read.
Sarah, this poem is beautiful. the first to lines had me in tears. i wish you all the best in life.
