Take My Chances

broken20heart11You’re asleep. I wish I was sleeping in the bed with you, but I’m up wondering how this is going to turn out. You’re pulling away and it feels like you’re moving towards cheating again. I don’t know what to do. So I will take my chances and hope for the best. T.G.

From the Ashes of Great Pain

broken20heart11A turning point came. Grief grew from it for both of us. Our love was severely tested and its strength proven. Wounds are still healing, but the future looks bright. From the ashes of great pain is growing the greatest happiness I’ve ever known. J.R.B.

Grief, is also a form of joy.
The rose celebrates,
by falling apart,
petal by petal.
Clouds celebrate,
by weeping over,
and over.
Coleman Barks

Heart, Mind and Soul

broken20heart11It took a long time, but I finally was able to fall in love again. And for loving you I learned how to love better. This time I won’t make the same mistakes or do the same stupid things. Heart, mind and soul I am healthy and able to love like never before. D.L.

It feels like I’ve dried up my tears
And fought my way out
of this darkness
which used to possess
every part of my being
but now, it feels like
I am finally healing.
No more are the mascara stained pillows
No more is the feeling of drowning in sorrow
Gone is the emptiness in which I used to feel
Seems like real life has re’gained it’s appeal.

Falling for the Wrong Person

broken20heart11My heart’s broken. I hardly sleep. I obsess over you day and night. Yet, I know you were not right for me. I knew it all along, but that didn’t keep me from loving you. Knowing I fell for the wrong person does not lessen the pain of this lesson I am being taught. A.P.

Watching you walk out of my life
does not make me bitter or cynical about love.
But rather makes me realize that if I wanted
so much to be with the wrong person
how beautiful it will be
when the right one comes along.

Never to Heal

broken20heart11I used to think we might get back together. However, now I know what is done, is done. What we once shared lives only in the past now. I may have started the storm of hurt, but you threw plenty in the hurricane too. Our love became crippled, never to heal. O.A.

Grab a plate and throw it on the floor
Okay, done.
Did it break?
Yes.
Okay, now say sorry to it.
Sorry.
Did it go back to how it was before?
No.
Now do you understand?

Can’t Live Like This

broken20heart11You drove me away an inch at a time. To a point I was able to get used to your messy habits, lack of manners and selfish ways. But you never even really tried to change. It’s my fault for thinking a spoiled brat could. I’m sorry, but I can’t live like this. H.M.

you’re not in the right relationship.
If you’re receiving it and not giving it
then you are taking advantage
of the other person.

Some Remains Forever

broken20heart11There is something beautiful about all scars, whatever nature. A scar means the hurt is over, the wound is closed and healed; done with. But that does not mean feelings die completely. Where ever there has been love, some remains forever. A.O.

A heartbreak is a blessing from God.
It’s just his way of letting you realize
He saved you from the wrong one.

To Save Me

broken20heart11From the moment we met passion and feelings of attachment swept us away. As the winds of attraction calmed I found myself trying to be what I thought you wanted, instead of who I was. In time I grew to hate myself. To save me, I had to leave you. G.T.

Now_I__m_Leaving_You_by_sinplayerAs soon as the love relationship
does not lead me to me,
as soon as I in a love relationship
do not lead another person to himself,
this love, even if it seems to be the most secure
and ecstatic attachment I have ever experienced,
is not true love.
For real love is dedicated to continual becoming.
Leo Buscaglia

Determination to Carry On

broken20heart11My heart was broken so badly moving on was impossible for years . Love failed because I never gave all of me and was dishonest. Now the grandest love of my life has arrived. This time I’m giving everything and risking it all. She’s worth it! B.C.

for someone to call our own,
someone who will give us
the determination to carry on.
And that someone I have
found in you,
a love honest and so
totally true.

Loving You Even More

broken20heart11Holding you as you cried until you made yourself sick was one of the hardest things I have ever done. My arms were around your waist as your intense emotions made you throw up. You said I’m sorry” and I believe you. I ended up loving you even more. C.B.
