Life Without You

In time I’ll get used to the extra room in our my bed. The first night of sleeping alone was hard. I hardly slept and missed your warmth against me. The covers were not warm enough or soft enough to soothe me. I’ll get used to life without you but it will take a long time. D.C.

Giving up
doesn’t always
mean you
are weak;
sometimes it
means that
you are
strong enough
to let go.

I’m Not Supposed To…

I wish I could get you out of my head. If I could do that, maybe I can start to get you out of my heart. I imagine everything being good again between us, but I know you have moved on.  I am just a part of the past. R.Y.

I’m not supposed to love you.
I’m not supposed to care.
I’m not supposed to live
My life wishing you were there.
I’m not supposed to wonder
Where you are or what you do.
I’m sorry I can’t help myself,
I’m in love with you.


Without a word, you just left!  One day your phone was disconnected and your apartment was empty.  I thought you were in trouble, but a letter arrived two days later that said you had fallen in love with someone else and moved to Texas.  I hate you. F.R.

If I never met you,
I wouldn’t like you.
If I didn’t like you,
I wouldn’t love you.
If I didn’t love you,
I wouldn’t miss you.
But I did,
I do,
I will.
