Why Does It Hurt

You felt the pain when they walked out the door
and you've been in fights
and you've been in wars
but you never felt anything like this before
why does it hurt when their leaving

You were glad when they left
it made you feel free
like a burden was lifted that buckled your knees
you didn't get on
and you didn't agree
so why does it hurt when their leaving.

It's a blow to the ego, and to think that they just may find someone out there who is better than us. Nobody likes to lose, even if it is the best thing. It still hurts like hell. Linda
The feeling of losing what you had before the fights. Sometimes loneliness. A true insight Charles. Patricia
