Hyperventilating, blurry vision, uncontrollable tears, elevated pulse rate, equilibrium off, aching stomach, body aches, can’t keep food down. I’m a mess because you don’t love me anymore. I feel worthless as if I’ve been thrown away; unwanted; unneeded. T.G.
You know I was there for you every single moment.
You weren’t there when I really needed you.
You preferred someone else when you had
the choice of coming back and start a new page.
You better not come back to me with a broken heart
and ask for my love, because I’m not going to heal you.
I learned from you. You don’t deserve me.
I once loved you and you pushed me away.
I’m not a game you can have me
and then throw me away. Nope.
My dignity comes first.
I’m not coming back!!!
I moved on.
Mahmoud El Hallab
You 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.
Long after breaking up with me you wanted us to have sex while your new boyfriend watched. Problem was I still loved you and couldn’t go there, even to be physically close to you. What’s in my heart made anything except truly making love with you impossible. M.E.
He had placed himself at her feet so long
that the poor little woman had been accustomed
to trample upon him. She didn’t wish to marry him,
but she wished to keep him. She wished to give
him nothing, but that he should give her all.
It is a bargain not unfrequently levied in love.
From “Vanity Fair”
by William Makepeace Thackeray
My heart has been broken many times, but never like when I lost you. The depth of the grief helped me harden my heart to keep anyone from getting that close again. And they haven’t. Yes, I have loved since you, but I have never loved again like I did you. D.O.
A mighty pain to love it is,
And ’tis a pain that pain to miss;
But of all pains, the greatest pain
It is to love, but love in vain.
My love for you does not adhere to rules like “three strikes and you’re out”. Instead my love for you lives like grass stepped on, crushed, burned out and cut; but still persists and grows back. This shows my love for you to be deep and real and me to be a fool. C.B.
If you love something very much,
you’ve got to go easy with it;
give it some room to move around.
If you try to hold it tight like that,
it’ll always try to get away.
Why do I keep doing this? Why am I attracted to the unattainable? Am I a masochist? No matter how many times I get hurt, I go straight back to him. Again. And AGAIN. I hate that he can hurt me so much, with so little. I should have shown him the door long ago. D.B.
life filled with pain.
eyes filled with shame.
heart filled with hurt.
for life not to get worse.
I feel like I am dead but still breathing. Food has no taste. Nothing holds my attention. I hardly speak. When I need to sleep I can’t. When I’m awake all I want to do is to escape into a nap. Without you my life lacks what it takes to make living meaningful. C.W.
The person who tries to live alone
will not succeed as a human being.
His heart withers if it does not answer another heart.
His mind shrinks away if he hears only the echoes
of his own thoughts and finds no other inspiration.
Pearl S. Buck
I barely knew you when I caught you lying the first time. Later came many more untruths I knew were white lies, but never said anything. I always suspected you’d hurt me in time. I just hoped some how, some way you’d prove me wrong. But that’s not what happened. T.M.
We don’t always love what is good or
who is good for us. With frightening frequency
we fall in love with things that damage our life
and people who tear us to pieces.
Yesterday my Momma said ” Sweetie, if she does not care why should you? Don’t keep fightin’ for a woman who will not fight for you in return. Life is too short and there’s someone out there who will be just as interested in you as you are in her. Move on so she can find you.” R.B.
Cause I loved her from a distance
Like an angel watching from afar
I never had the nerve to mention
The fire burning in my heart.
I knew a boy like me
Never would’a stood a chance
So I did the best I could
And I loved her from a distance.
From the song “From A Distance” by Corey Smith
Finally the realization has come to get on with my life. You’re not coming back. For a year I’ve lived in a daze; one day after another just a hazy sleepwalk of misery. I may not be able to stop loving you but I have to wake up. Somehow, someway I have to move on. S.T.
As of now, I am moving on.
Through and out, this hard time.
The clouds will clear, and the storm will pass.
Things are looking up, as I raise the mast.
Sailing on, and moving out.
From these dark days, I muster all my clout.
I am ready, to start again.
Just to see, where life begins.
