Emotional pain is invisible to the naked eye, however, when we hurt inside there is no pain that compares.


When we are Hurting inside


Our lives can often be difficult, harsh and unkind...dealing with highly emotional situations, unable to unwind.

When we are hurting inside our pain is much more intense, there are no medications to get some relief, overly active minds, unable to relax, another night without sleep.

Desperately, searching for a solution, all  we can draw are blank...becoming frustrated, falling in too deep.

Try not to be too hard on yourself and allow a rapid decline. Many of us have been there and nearly crossed the invisible line.

There is always hope, even when our lives are crumbling in a state of decay. Pry open the door of hope and let some sunlight in...the emotional pain lessens at the start of a new day.

Reach out to positive people and listen to what they say.....we all deserve to be happy and enjoy every new day.

Thank you for taking the time to read, "When we are Hurting inside", I sincerely hope you are sleeping well.

Hello Stuart. Nice to see you here, I know you from Goodreads. Your poem hits the nail on the head as I am a sufferer of depressive anxiety disorder. I could so relate to your words. Your friend, Kathy

We sometimes wear that "mask" to cover-up our true emotions when we are hurting so deeply, and, sadly, a lot of people never reach out for help when they are most desperate. I think that is why it is important for us (humanity) to be kind to one another as we never know what the other person is enduring or how they are struggling. Hope ... without it, there is nothing. Very emotive piece, Stuart. My heart and prayers are with you all in Australia today. ~Elizabeth

Very inspiring write, Stuart. I am not sleeping too well, but I use these waking hours to meditate and read uplifting books. I find peace and courage from my bible, I pray and talk to God, then I can rest. Thanks for sharing this, Stuart!

Hi Stuart,this is a well written poem.Your poetry are always full of advice that is helpful and informative where people can disgest it in their souls to become better human beings.I remember when I read this poem by Slyvia Plath in high school and she talked about people wearing masks to cover up what they are feeling.Its important that people have someone in their lives whether its a friend or a family member to talk to about our problems.All of us need sunshine and the last thing people need or want to hear is people judging them for their problems.All of us deserve to be happy like you said and have much needed positive guidance to make through the hardships of life.Your poetry is therarpy to anyone that is feeling sad and down.You have a beautiful soul and its always a pleasure reading your poems.take care

I one time about 15 or so years ago got very close to crossing that "invisible line", would have to, but someone kinda caught me, so now I have been on Zoloft ever since and I seem to stay mellow even when I am working only part time and looking at a bleak, moneyless, foodless future...something will work out on this end, hope things are okay down under too...Ed
