I See Only Two People

broken20heart11There is an ache in my chest that comes from wondering what will become of ‘us’. Will our love grow into an ‘always’ life together or will the magic fade? It’s wonderful to love someone so much but sometimes I’m still afraid you’re going to break my heart. L.Y.

I lie on the ground,
and stare into space,
the stars start to move,
into the shape of your face.
I see you there now,
looking down at me,
with that cute little smile,
that I like to see.
You say “close your eyes”,
“tell me what you see”,
I see only two people,
just you and me.
From “A Wish” by Randy Schutte

Grow My Heart

broken20heart1Three times I have loved with all my heart. Twice I was hurt and left behind. Now I realize the other two were sent into my life to grow my heart’s ability to hold all the love inside I feel for you. For all my old pain that made it possible, I am grateful. M.E.

Sorrow is how we learn to love.
Your heart isn’t breaking.
It hurts because it’s getting larger.
The larger it gets, the more love it holds.
Rita Mae Brown

Never In Real Life

broken20heart1To this day I am still hoping you will forgive me and show up at my door. I dream of opening it and standing there you say “I have forgiven you. I love you. I can’t live without you”. Sadly that sort of redemption is only in the movies and never in real life. H.M.

Betraying and deceiving you,
I surely had no right
To snatch away such a precious gem;
A dark thief in the night.
To hear those forbidden words,
To vanquish all the pain,
To understand my dearest wish:
To know you once again.

Helpless In Love

broken20heart1You know I like you. You might even have an idea it’s more. Why can’t I tell you? You’ve always been good to me, so what am I afraid of? I love you but can’t find the words or a way to say I want to be more than friends. I feel so helpless in love. V.H.

To burn with desire
and keep quiet about it
is the greatest punishment
we can bring on ourselves.
Federico Garcia Lorca

Soft Whispers Echo

broken20heart1There are parts of me where your fingerprints invisibly still exist, your kisses continue to linger and your soft whispers echo silently. And at least for now I don’t want that to change. I have not completely given up on us. Have you? A.S.

I hated myself
for needing him at such times,
for craving his strength
whenever I felt upset.

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.
Bob Marley

Hope By Hope

broken20heart1I’m in pain because I really need you by my side. I don’t want to you to leave even though I always said that you could. I was lying. You’re my everything. I love you and need you for every part of my life. I’m sitting here just waiting for you, hope by hope. K.N.

between being asleep and awake,
where you still remember your dreams?
That’s where I’ll always love.
That’s where I’ll always wait for you.
