The poem written by Nikka Ventorillo shows, that it is sometimes hard to combine words with a title. The working title she used for her poem is Love you so hurt me. A poem about how we should look beyond the physical aspects of a relationship and take it to a deeper level.
Nikka is twenty years old and lives in the Philippines. She studies to become a physical therapist and in her spare time, she writes poetry. She writes about her emotions, both positive and negative. She sees her work as a form of letting go of her thoughts. She wants to make the readers of her poems able to see into her world, into her thoughts.
She considers writing to be very important, but she can also enjoy the quiet places in nature – to unwind and to self-reflect.
Nikka shares her poetic thoughts on Instagram, where you can find her under the username Nikkasaa.
About the poem
She wrote this poem without giving it a real title. She explained that Love you so hurt me is the working title of her poem.
This poem tells us about a couple, two lovers, who are experiencing this intimacy for the first time. Not just the physical part, the sexual part, but more the two becoming one. Connected together, for the first time. The feeling of being one in all aspects.
When you don’t know what the motive was to write this poem, you might assume this poem was indeed about some physical action between two lovers. The power of suggestion might work in a different way from what the poetess was aiming at.
Love you so hurt me
I surrendered everything and all I could do is to shut my eyes
tight as I welcomed his solid and fiery soul digging deeper and
stinging in every centimetre of friction inside me and every
living cell in my body swollen up as he further ram
himself to the fullness of his length within me.
