I can’t make you love me, want me, or understand me. All I can do Is hope that someday you will. I’m not going to sit around waiting for you, but I will keep hoping you’ll want me before time creates too vast a distance between us. I’m waiting, but not forever. C.N.
In my story you’re the villain.
But in my heart,
you’re still the reigning King.
Coco J. Ginger
When I saw you with her, I told myself, “So what?” When I saw you holding her hand, I told myself, “I don’t care!” When I saw you playing with her hair, I said, “Whatever!” Who am I kidding? I’m still missing you doing all those things with me. B.C.
It’s not love’s going hurts my days
But that it went in little ways.
Edna St. Vincent Millay
Within there is a burning need to apologize; to tell you how much I regret being a such a disappointment. But I’m afraid; fearful you won’t forgive me and will instead express how you hate me. I was very wrong. I’m sorry and mourn losing you every single day. D.W.
Love never dies a natural death.
It dies because we don’t know how
to replenish its source. It dies of
blindness and errors and betrayals.
It dies of illness and wounds;
it dies of weariness,
No matter what, I will always forget to forget about you. The more I try making what we shared a thing of my past, the more regret grows. I miss your smile; the way you kissed me; your laugh; feeling you against me and a thousand other things. I wish I didn’t. T.M.
I can’t completely let go of you,
Let go of us…
All I can say is I love you.
I know you don’t want to hear it,
But it makes no sense to pretend I don’t.
I miss you with all of me.
Things get easier,
but will never with you.
I’ll cry less,
But the pain will still be there.
The love we shared and gave to each other
Will always remain in my heart forever.
Today was just one of those days where everything I did reminded me of you, every song I heard somehow related to you and every couple I saw brought back memories of us. I hate days like today, because they remind me of the one thing I don’t have. YOU! B.C.
Frustrated because I can’t tell if it’s real.
Mad because I don’t know how you feel.
Upset because we can’t make it right.
Sad because I need you day and night.
Angry because you won’t take my hand.
Aggravated because you don’t understand.
Disappointed because we can’t be together,
but still I’ll love you forever.
After we broke up I lost track of you. Sometimes I wonder where you are or what you’re doing. Did you move away? Settle down? Are you happy? Are you in love? Do you have children? It’s been ten years and still I have thoughts of you. Do you still think of me? J.B.
I wonder do you think of me
And remember the park
Where you struck the spark
To a fire that’s still burning
… in my heart.
I can tell you that I’ve never
Felt like that since.
I don’t know if you would
But I’d go back if I could.
Bumping into you was completely unexpected. It’s been years since I last saw you. With “how are you’s” and small talk my love for you began shouting in my heart again. The volume of that voice in my heart is still loud days later. I love you. I always will. I miss you so. A.O.
Our eyes crossed
my voice was lost
destroyed my soul.
Words were broken
thoughts were woken
she torment me so.
From “Her smile destroyed my soul” by Peter Wetzel
Regularly I read or hear you are doing well and your career continues to blossom. I am so proud of you and grateful once you loved me and I called you mine. Becoming a rock star was your dream. Mine was to be with you. Glad yours came true. Sad mine did not. S.W.
If you listen to the wind very carefully,
you’ll be able to hear me
whisper my love for you.
Accepting life will expire for someone loved never completely comes even after they’re gone. Sometimes I forget for a moment and expect to run into you just around the corner. You’re still with me but I miss your voice, your touch, the way you looked at me and lots more. C.S.
I’ll catch your smile on someone’s face,
Your whisper in the wind’s embrace
Through diamond stars and songs and dreams
I find your love in everything
The sun, the sky, the rolling sea
All conspire to comfort me.
From sorrow’s edge life’s beauty seems
To find your love in everything.
I’ve come to trust the hope it brings
To find your love in everything.
Even as I fall apart,
Even through my shattered heart,
I’ll catch your smile on someone’s face
Beth Neilsen Chapman
You don’t answer your phone when I call and ignore my texts. When I run into you by chance you look away and won’t speak to me. I know what I did was wrong, but there’s a lot you don’t know. Please talk to me and listen to what I have to say. I love you and I’m sorry. A.N.
Sticks and stones are hard on bones
Aimed with angry art,
Words can sting like anything
But silence breaks the heart.
