It Does Not Matter

broken20heart11Shock still engulfs me. One day you were in love with me. The next you wanted nothing to do with me. There was no doubt within that I loved you, but you leaving made me realize how very deeply I feel about you. It does not matter. You’re gone. L.L.

Softly as a gentle breeze,
Love crept into my heart
So softly I did not realize
Until we came to part.
‘Twas then that love so suddenly
Grew claws, and without warning
Clamped around my heart and left
Me bleeding and in mourning.
So stunned was I by this attack,
I did not cry out “stay! “
And, frowning at my silence,
You turned and walked away.
I never knew, until you left,
How much you’d meant to me
And now you’re gone, I guess
Our love was never meant to be.
“Never Meant To Be”

Please Help Me

broken20heart11Insecurities tear at me and it hurts when you go out partying with your friends. You were wild in the past, but I have no reason to doubt you since we’ve been together. Please help me stop the painful worrying about losing you or being cheated on. T.G.

Interestingly Wrong

broken20heart11Life is too short to waste time with one who’s unworthy of my love. If I stay with you the right person for me will come along and I’ll miss them. I’ve been busy trying to change you, but I’m not going to do it anymore. You’re wrong for me and we both know it. A.L.

One rarely falls in love
without being as much attracted
to what is interestingly wrong with someone
as what is objectively healthy.

How Screwed Up I Am

broken20heart1I want to give you my whole heart, but can’t. I’m afraid you’ll find out how screwed up I am if you get that close. It confuses me to love you so much and hate myself at the same time. If I don’t share my true feelings with you soon I know you’ll leave me. H.F.

can never be happy for someone else.

Only in Your Imagination

broken20heart1You thought I was your property and you could make me into anything you wanted. All that meant is you were never in love me. I was only a possession that you thought could be remodeled into a fantasy man that was real only in your imagination. H.S.

If our love
is only a will
to possess,
it is not love.
Thich Nhat Hanh

How Can I?

broken20heart1It hurts most when the person who made you feel special yesterday makes you feel unwanted today. One of the worst feelings in the world is having to doubt something you thought was unquestionable. I’m lost and don’t know what to do. R.P.

What do you do when the one person
you want comfort from the most
is the one who caused your pain?
How can I want so desperately for him
to wrap me up in his arms but also
want so much for him to leave me alone?
Amanda Grace

The Biggest Coward

broken20heart1I read that sometimes the best way to get a woman’s attention is to stop giving her yours. I quit returning your calls and didn’t answer the door when you came by. I tried to make you want me more, but you just stopped calling and coming around. T.P.

The biggest coward
is a man who awakens
a woman’s love
with no intention
of loving her.
