Never Goes Away

Loving you was not the first time I’d given my heart, nor will it be the last. However, there’s something unmistakably unique about what I felt for you and feel to this very moment. I have resigned myself to it never changing. From a distance I will always love you. J.B.

Thinking of you is easy.
I do it every day.
Missing you is the heartache,
that never goes away.
Michael Pryce

No One Can Fix It

Was I only a another conquest? Did you love me at all? Or was I only what you desired that once obtained lost its appeal? In a day you went from saying you couldn’t live without me to breaking up with me for someone else. I hate myself for letting you treat me this way. R.W.

My heart…
You tore it.
Piece by piece you shredded it.
And no one can fix it.
No one wants to.
Because they look at what you made me.
A girl with permanent tears painted on her face.
I am now just an empty void.
There is no desire to want to love again.

I’m Just As Responsible

To become such a smooth and successful liar it took you lots of practice. For a lie to happen it takes one to say it and another to believe it.  As much as I blame you, I blame myself more for trusting you. If I hold a snake and get bite I’m just as responsible as the snake. A.G.

Sometimes I’m terrified of my heart;
of its constant hunger for whatever it is it wants.
The way it stops and starts.
Edgar Allan Poe

One Night Together

I’m asking for one night together. Just you and me; alone. And if you can honestly say you don’t feel anything for me after that night, I’ll leave. Please! Let’s put the past and our pride away for 8 hours and make sure we’re not about to throw something beautiful away. J.C.

If you have it [love],
you don’t need to have anything else,
and if you don’t have it,
it doesn’t matter much what else you have.
Sir James M. Barrie

Love’s Toughest Work

The worst mistake of my life was to break up with you. My fear of commitment made me run. The harder you tried to love me and hold on, the greater distance I created between us. I picked fights for no reason to justify leaving you. I’m so sorry. Please forgive me. J.B.

 

Forgiving is love’s toughest work, and love’s biggest risk.
If you twist it into something it was never meant to be,
it can make you a doormat or an insufferable manipulator.
Forgiving seems almost unnatural.
Our sense of fairness tells us people should pay for the wrong they do.
But forgiving is love’s power to break nature’s rule.
Lewis B. Smedes

I Thought Never

 Misunderstand me (often). Mistrust me. (why?). Beg for forgiveness. (frequently). Abuse me (you’re guilty!). Apologize (all the time). Take me for granted (regularly). Shower me with affection (seldom). Cheat on me (YES!) Hurt me (you have… BADLY). Goodbye!  L.E.

My heart is sunk and moist is eye,
As nothing is more painful than the last good-bye.
These two words would change my life forever,
As a life without you, I thought never.
From “The Last Goodbye” by Dinesh K.

A Little More Each Day

Hurt flows from inside out. I feel pain radiating from the top of my head to the bottom of my feet. I never knew love could ache so horribly until you said “I don’t love you anymore”. I’ve tried everything but nothing relieves my suffering. I die a little more each day! R.B.

What can I do,
lost as I am in the wind
and lightning that surrounds you.
What can I do,
now that my tears
are rising toward the sky
only to fall back
into the sea again.
What can I do,
now that this page is wet;
now that this pen is empty.
From “Borrowed Love Poems” by John Lou
