I’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.
You’re the one who broke my heart. You’re the reason my world fell apart. You’re the one who made me cry. Yet I’m still in love with you and I don’t know why. I’m addicted and obsessed with you as my mind altering drug. Love for you is destroying me a day at a time. L.A.
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.
By “Earthbound Angel”
My heart is still cluttered with memories of ‘us’. Like in a house filled with too many things I can’t find room for anyone new. It’s pathetic to hold on when you left me behind long ago. I wish I could be free of you. This love I carry is a curse. G.P.
I wish I knew how it would feel to be free;
I wish I could break all the chains holding me;
I wish I could say all the things that I should say;
say ‘em loud, say ‘em clear
for the whole round world to hear.
I wish I could share all the love that’s in my heart;
remove all the bars that keep us apart.
Lyrics from a Nina Simone song
by Bill Taylor and Dick Dallas
Why I never told you the full truth seems so foolish now. I was fearful to speak; afraid you’d run away if I said I loved you with every milligram of me. Like a flower yearns for rain I long for you. I want you. I need you. I love you. Please don’t go; stay with me. H.N.
I’m sitting there waiting for you;
Waiting… hope by hope.
Deep inside my heart, I’m in pain
Because I really need you to be by my side.
REALLY! I’m not lying to you
I don’t want you to leave.
Even though I always said
That you can leave.
I’m lying to you.
You’re my everything.
I really love you.
I need you for every part of my life.
Adapted from an anonymous on-line post
The last time I saw you was close to twenty years ago. You are frozen in time in my heart and mind just like you were then. I’m a good reason you don’t have to regret getting older for within me you will always be young, beautiful, vibrant and loved always. C.B.
To love and win is the best thing.
To love and lose, the next best.
William M. Thackeray
How was I to know watching you marry someone else would make me realize how much I love you? Now I’ll live with regret for the rest of my life. I’ll never invade your happiness to tell you how I feel. That wouldn’t be right. I’ll bear my secret quietly alone. P.D.
If love is like driving a car,
then I must be the worst driver
in the world. I missed all the signs
and ended up lost.
Memories: the way you twisted your hair with one finger; how you love Asian seafood dishes; that old sweatshirt with all the holes you wore a lot; your fondness for hats; the little noise your lips made as we finished a kiss; I will always love you like no other. D.L.
Your sweet scent will forever be with me,
reminding me of the love we once shared.
I will breathe in the memories
until we meet again.
Donna L. Jones
Everyday at work I see you. We hang out in the same crowd on weekends. “Best friends” you often say we are, but for me it’s so much more. What am I supposed to do with all this love in my heart? Am I destined to carry it forever and you never know it’s there? C.A.
I hate the way you talk to me,
and the way you cut your hair.
I hate the way you drive my car,
I hate it when you stare.
I hate your big, dumb combat boots
and the way you read my mind.
I hate you so much it makes me sick —
It even makes me rhyme.
I hate the way you’re always right.
I hate it when you lie.
I hate it when you make me laugh —
Even worse when you make me cry.
I hate it when you’re not around.
And the fact that you didn’t call.
But mostly I hate the way I don’t hate you —
Not even close, not even a little bit, not even at all.
“10 Things I Hate About You”
By Katarina “Kat” Stratford
Love for you still lives in my heart but I’m different now.
You broke me. NO, you shattered me into pieces. Once I put myself back together the person who emerged is not the old quiet and compliant me. I’m stronger with lots of confidence. Are you ready for that? L.K.
Yes you are forgiven,
come back to me
and we can start all over again…
But one thing is for sure,
after you broke me
I’m not the same person
that you hurt before…
You leaving knocked me down hard. For months I cried your name into my pillow, but in time I began to heal and find new hope. I was grateful you didn’t try to stay in touch. Now you’re back and want to see me. Which way do I run? To you or away from you? R.P.
So I placed my heart
under lock and key
To take some time,
and take care of me
But I turn around
and you’re standing here.
