I fell really hard
So hard on my face
Now tormented and plagued
With shame and disgrace.

I tried really hard
To get away from you
But your memory is haunting
What can I do?

Running, keep running
So far away
But somehow you find me
Why can’t you stay?

Stay far away from me
Leave me alone
Get out of my mind
Stay out of my home.

Can I see a doctor?
Can I see a nurse?
Can a therapist help me
Or make matters worse?

I don’t really want you
You’re just an obsession
A thorn in my side
The result of rejection.

  1. I too have had a recent break up after 8 1/2 years and it is eating me. Writing helps and making myself leave the house every day helps a bit too. My dogs are the best though. If you don’t have a pet, you may want to think about getting one.

  2. I have a dog, too! She’s a small maltese. I am venting about a relationship that happened years ago. I am okay and currently in a good relationship. I draw upon past feelings to write and express my emotions. I am very sorry about your recent breakup. I do understand what it feels like. I have good days and bad days, too…my own unresolved issues. Thank you for caring about me. I’m sending you positive, healing energy. If you need to talk, feel free to email me at
