Is Love Hiding

broken20heart11How the hours change things. The night is so different from what is here now in this new day. Last night we were in love and today it seems to have evaporated away. What is real and what is not? Was last night love or illusion? Is love hiding or are we hiding love? JR

rumpled bed

The sound of sunshine shouts,
Across my window sill;
A drum that echoes through,
A world that once was still.

Gone with the morning;
Where did the feeling go?
What was here,
Is here no more;
Leaving only shadows
Of the night before.

Two daytime strangers wake
A long way from the night.
We couldn’t make the journey
From the dark to the light.

Gone with the morning;
What happens I do not know.
The bed is warm
Where we slept.
Sunshine came
And we were swept away,
Leaving us victims
Of the new day.

What was here,
Is here no more.
We are shadows
Of the night before.
I wish I knew
Why love just fades
Away and dies;
Like stars that live by night
And tumble from the skies.

No Boundary

broken20heart11Our is strong, but so much has happened to scar and injure it. Can we survive it all? We’re going to spend some time apart and I hope it brings healing to both of us. I can’t imagine life without you in it. There is no boundary between who I am and you any more. T.G.


When I think of you
I think of happiness…
Happiness you’ve brought into my life.
When I think of you
I think of tenderness…
The tenderness of our first kiss.
When I think of you
I think of caring…
And how much we care for each other.
When I think of you
I think of sharing…
Sharing all our thoughts and feelings.
When I think of you
I think of love…
Love I never thought I’d feel again.
When I think of love
I think of you…
I love you with all my heart.
“When I Think Of You”
by Hilary Anne

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”

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.

It hurts to live.
I hate her,
yet I do not think
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.

Ever Again

broken20heart11My love; my love; my love. How do I live without you? My life has been entangled with yours for so long I am lost without you. You’re gone and there is nothing I can do except grieve my loss and know life will never be as full of color and joy ever again. S.W.


When tomorrow starts without me,
And I’m not there to see,
If the sun should rise and find your eyes
All filled with tears for me;
I wish so much you wouldn’t cry
The way you did today,
While thinking of the many things,
We didn’t get to say.
I know how much you love me,
As much as I love you,
And each time that you think of me,
I know you’ll miss me too;
But when tomorrow starts without me,
Please try to understand,
That an angel came and called my name,
And took me by the hand…
From the song “Memories”
