Do You Really

broken20heart11Where things for us go now, I have no idea. You don’t know for sure what you want and are moving out. You say you love me, but those words seem to come from you mind and not your heart. You say you want our committed relationship to continue. Do you really? C.B.

The scariest thing about distance
is that you don’t know whether
they’ll miss you or forget you.
Nicholas Sparks, “The Notebook”

Matter of Unaffected Wonder

broken20heart11Loving you has been one of the most difficult things of my lifetime… and one of the best. In spite of the pain, the love we share has always won out. I only hope that never changes. JB

That you should care at all for me
has been a matter of unaffected wonder
to me from the first hour until now -
and I cannot help the pain I feel sometimes,
in thinking that it would have been better for you
if you never had known me.

From Full Color to Black and White

broken20heart11When I thought we were over, my entire life changed from full color to black and white. So much of who and what I am is wrapped around you. Thankfully, we made it through the rough spot and we’re healing now. I love you. T.G.

I can exist without her.

Rules of Love

broken20heart11Love has no rhyme or reason. Falling for you is proof. My greatest joy and some of my greatest pain has come from loving you. My heartbreak is becoming joy because we work through the bad stuff. I am grateful our love endures. Y.M.

Rules of love
1. Never kiss when you’re not committed.
2. Never expect, just hope.
3. Never love a taken man/woman.
4. Never fall for a friend.
5. Realize than in love, there aren’t any rules.

I Love You

broken20heart11We’re so different and the dissimilarities have taken their toll. Only time will tell if the differences will win or if love will. Either way, the love we have shared will always be. Nothing can take away the beauty we have shared and the wounds will heal… in time. C.B.

I’m here. I love you.
I don’t care if you need to stay up crying all night long,
I will stay with you.
There’s nothing you can ever do to lose my love.
I will protect you until you die,
and after your death I will still protect you.
Elizabeth Gilbert

Every Broken Piece

broken20heart11No matter what you do or say to me; when you come running back; when you need me again, I’ll be right here waiting for you. I’ll take you back, no questions asked. You’re the big love of my life. I’m yours and don’t give a f… what others think about that. S.A.

It’s amazing how someone can
break your heart
and you still love them
with every broken piece of it.

Be Patient

broken20heart11My heart was broken when I found out what you had been doing. Now slowly it is going back together. I love you and want things to work out. But you must understand that sometimes I cut my self on the unhealed broken edges in my heart. Be patient. H.M.

We are all mistaken sometimes;
sometimes we do wrong things,
things that have bad consequences.
But it does not mean we are evil,
or that we cannot be trusted ever afterward.
Alison Croggon

The Worst Feeling

broken20heart11Loving you has been like getting hurt from falling,, although you can’t see the damage. Outwardly there is no proof you wounded me, but I’ll always know what you did. I love you. I forgive you. But I’ll always wish you had not done what you did. Y.K.W.

No one can promise they’ll never hurt you
because at one time or another, it will happen.
The real promise is if the time you spend together
will be worth the pain in the end.
The worst feeling in the world is
knowing you’ve been used and lied to.

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.
From “Lost Without You” by Jenna

Deep and True Love

broken20heart11The hurt will never leave completely. There will always be a trace, but it’s departing faster than I imagined it might. You hurting me has brought a realization of much I love you. My deep and true love allows me to continue to want you, need you and be with you. O.K.

If she’s amazing, she won’t be easy.
If she’s easy, she won’t be amazing.
If she’s worth it, you won’t give up.
If you give up, you’re not worthy.
Truth is, everybody is going to hurt you;
you just gotta find the ones worth suffering for.
Bob Marley
