Afraid to Ask

broken20heart11You hardly want to touch me, but I remember when you couldn’t keep your hands off me. I’m the same person you said you’ve love forever. What happened? Did you get tired of me? Is there someone else? I feel there is, but am afraid to ask for fear you’ll say “Yes, there is”. A.N.

How do I mend a broken heart?
My entire world has fallen apart.
How do I find hope in a brand new day,
when the one I love has gone away?
My mind overflows with memories of you,
of all that we’ve shared, all that we knew.
I long for your touch and your warm embrace,
the look in your eyes, the smile on your face.
My dreams are filled with your soft gentle kiss,
I wake and cry for all that I miss.

Dirty, Rotten, Evil

broken20heart11For months you convinced me you had changed and your past was behind you. All the way you were still playing your dirty little compulsive games. Even in bed you made plans for sex with others while I lay beside you. Dirty, Rotten, Evil. B.C.

F#@& You for cheating on me.
F#@& you for reducing it to the word cheating.
As if this were a card game, and you sneaked a look at my hand.
Who came up with the term cheating, anyway?
A cheater, I imagine. Someone who thought liar was too harsh.
Someone who thought devastator was too emotional.
The same person who thought,
oops, he’d gotten caught with his hand in the cookie jar.
F#@& you.
This isn’t about slipping yourself an extra twenty dollars
of Monopoly money. These are our lives.
ou went and broke our lives.
You are so much worse than a cheater.
You killed something.
And you killed it when its back was turned.
From “The Lover’s Dictionary” by David Levithan

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.

selfishIf you’re giving love and not receiving it,
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.

Haunted By Your Past

broken20heart11I believe you love me, but I’m afraid that will change some day. You’ve been with so many. There is no certainty that I, alone, can be enough for you. How do I calm my fear? Why did they leave you behind or did you leave them? My love is haunted by your past. G.T.

I’m afraid…
Afraid that I might lose you…
Afraid that you might find someone else…
Afraid that your love for me will end…
Afraid that everything we have gone through,
Might not mean the same as what it means to me…
Afraid that you’ll forget…
Afraid that you’ll give up…
Afraid that you’ll stop caring…
Afraid that you’ll get tired…
Afraid that something will come up and ruin us…
Afraid that you’re not afraid…
Afraid that I love you too much…
Afraid to lose you…
I fear it more than anything in this world…
Because you, my Dear,
is who my heart has chosen to love,
My fear is greater than I will ever be..
So I ask of you..
Simply love me more than you ever thought you could love…
Just love me….

Like a House of Cards

broken20heart1You said you had told me everything. I believed you or at least wanted to. There was always a nagging feeling you kept secrets but I loved you so much I ignored it. How was I to know you withheld so much it caused our marriage to fall like a house of cards. D.S.

Even the simplest ones…

You Say….

broken20heart1You say you love me, but don’t show it. You say I’m the only one, but are secretive about where you go and who you’re with. You say you want us together forever, but refuse to talk about marriage. You say you always tell me the truth, but I know you lie to. S.C.

You say that you love rain,
but you open your umbrella when it rains…
You say that you love the sun,
but you find a shadow spot when the sun shines…
You say that you love the wind,
But you close your windows when wind blows…
This is why I am afraid;
You say that you love me too…
Turkish poem

Won’t Be Here

broken20heart1You don’t know it yet, but I saw you kissing her. It won’t work to tell me she was a friend. The embrace was between lovers or two people soon to be. When you get home tonight, I won’t be here, at least not for a few days. Not sure what happens after that. L.E.

I think you still love me,
but we can’t escape the fact
that I’m not enough for you.
I knew this was going to happen.
So I’m not blaming you for falling in love
with another woman. I’m not angry, either.
I should be, but I’m not. I just feel pain.
A lot of pain. I thought I could imagine
how much this would hurt, but I was wrong.
Haruki Murakami

Lock My Heart Up

broken20heart1I wanna believe you’re a perfect guy and everything you seem is true. You’re that book, with the pretty cover, that I just can’t wait to get into. Now I’ve read far enough into you I can’t put you down, I fear there will be a twist and by the last page I’ll be heartbroken. E.O.

Dont-fall-in-love

You have something that is mine;
You took it all, not just part;
It was very close to me, now it’s gone;
That’s right love, you took my heart.

So lock my heart up tight;
Make sure no one can take it;
Don’t let it out of sight;
Love, please try not to break it.

I Know It’s True

broken20heart1Still I am bewildered. What happened? Did I do something wrong or did you? One week you could not keep your hands off me and the next you barely wanted to touch me. It tears at my heart to think you have someone else. I don’t want to believe it, but I know it’s true. G.E.

To me our love was everything
and you were my whole life.
It is not very pleasant to realize
that to you it was only an episode.
