The pain feels like part of me was cut away leaving an invisible wound that bleeds and hurts day and night. I gave you all of me. Nothing was held back. But that wasn’t enough. I thought your restlessness could be filled with my love, but was wrong. You’re gone. H.P.
We hurt so much because
we have lost a part of ourselves.
If we have loved much,
we must have given much also,
and when everything’s over,
we feel as though we have lost everything.
From “Mend My Broken Heart”
By Jocelyn Soriano
Knowing how much you loved her didn’t stop me from thinking you could love me as much or more. Once she divorced you and we were together it seemed I was enough for you. I never dreamed she’d want you back and you’d leave me behind so easily. S.T.
In my dreams
It was me in your arms,
My lips on yours,
There was only us
And the clouds
And the stars.
It was the world and us.
It was us against the world.
But in your arms I could take it,
Anything the world dished out.
And with your kisses I was strong again.
In my dreams it was me in your arms,
My lips on yours,
But in reality
It’s always been her.
Hindsight seems so clear while life ahead appears obscured in fog. Time vaporizes like mist in the morning sun. And one day, I too, will evaporate back to where I came from. If I am the first to go, I’ll wait for you there. Then we can finally be together. T.L.
the clock is ticking,
the hours are going by.
The past increases,
the future recedes.
I’ve obsessed over the thought “you don’t know what you had until it’s gone” so much I get sick at my stomach every time I think it. If I could turn back time to before I left, I’d be faithful for always and never leave you. Please take me back Baby. PLEASE!!! A.L.
It’s gonna hurt so bad if you walk away
Why don’t you stay and let me make it up to you
Stay I’ll do anything you want me to
You loved me before please love me again
I can’t let you go back to him
Please don’t go
Please don’t go
From “Hurt So bad” by The Imperials
There’s no doubt we loved each other, but we hurt each other so badly. Our relationship is like a vase shattered into pieces so numerous and small it can never be put back together. Without kindness, understanding and forgiveness our love did not survive. A.O.
than those who
will not admit
they are wrong.
Francois de La Rochefoucauld
Forcing myself to forget you doesn’t work. I’ve tried over and over. Oh, how I wish the love in my heart would fade, but it’s stuck there. It’s my fault you’re gone and don’t want me. I’m beginning to believe I’ll never get over the pain and heartache of losing you.
Wanting him is hard to forget,
loving him is hard to regret,
losing him is hard to accept,
but even with all the hurt I’ve felt,
letting go is the most painful yet.
There was a reason for why you broke my heart. There’s a reason for why you laughed when I cried, but there is no reason for why I still love you after all that pain and heartbreak. Feeling like a fool just makes the grief worse. I was so stupid to believe in you. M.H.
Do you hear that sound?
Do you know what it is?
It’s my broken heart raining
the thousand pieces you broke it into.
I played your game. You won.
Congratulations. Hope you had fun.
After you broke up with me it seemed I couldn’t go an hour without thinking about you. In my dreams there was a strong presence of you for a very long time. Slowly, you began to fade into the past, but never completely. Even now I wonder if you are well and happy. K.S.
Thought I couldn’t live without you;
It’s gonna hurt when it heals too;
It’ll all get better in time
Even though I really love you;
I’m gonna smile cause I deserve to;
It’ll all get better in time.
From the song “Better In Time”
by Leona Lewis
My memory is clearing. I remember the times you should have/could have treated me better. Telling me you said one thing but felt something completely different doesn’t repair the injury to my trust. I still love you, but realize now I haven’t forgiven you yet. J.L.
The things two people do
to each other they remember.
If they stay together,
it’s not because they forget;
it’s because they forgive.
From the movie “Indecent Proposal”
You should’ve told the complete story about your past, not just part of it. Selective truth is akin to lying. What’s worse is you left me to stumble across the facts that made it hurt far more than if you’d told me from the beginning. Shame on you for hurting me this way. B.E.
I wish I could give you my pain
just for one moment.
Not to hurt you but rather so
you can finally understand
how much you hurt me.
