Day By Day

broken20heart1 Until the words “I don’t love you anymore” came from your lips I had no idea you were drifting way? Why did I let work take me over so completely that I was losing the most important person in my life and didn’t know it? Without you nothing else matters. T.P.


Isn’t it funny
how day by day
nothing changes
but when you look back
everything is different….
C.S. Lewis

So Wrong

broken20heart1Time is healing my broken heart and clearing my mistaken mind. Your opinions of me were so wrong. I was never as bad as you made me out to be. My opinions of you were so wrong too. You weren’t all that great and did little for me except make my life miserable. P.S.


A man never knows
how to say goodbye;
a woman never knows
when to say it.
Helen Rowland

Again and AGAIN

broken20heart1Why 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.

Letting You Go

broken20heart1Ours is the same old story that everybody knows: one heart holding on; one heart letting go. You want to “try” again like we’ve done fifty times. I know if we do it won’t turn out any different. It’s time we accept we don’t belong together. I am letting you go my Darling. J.J.


A sad thing in life
is that sometimes
you meet someone
who means a lot to you
only to find out in the end
that it was never bound to be
and you just have to let go.

Breaks My Heart In Two

broken20heart1As the days come and go I try not to think of you. But I do anyway. Attempting to make those thoughts go away only causes more loneliness for you. As difficult as missing you is, it’s not the hardest part. Knowing I once had you is what breaks my heart in two. E.C.


Those who don’t know how
to weep with their whole heart,
don’t know how to laugh either.
Golda Meir

The Thought of Losing You

broken20heart1No matter how long the truth is left unspoken, it still remains true. We can’t be together now. You have your wife; I have a husband; we both have little ones. Oh, the children; the children. We love them so much and could never leave our kids while they are so small. E.L.

saying goodbye

Love can come and go
receiving less than it deserves.
It’s all part of the game,
the same game that’s
driving me insane.
And I never felt so deep,
so deeply in love.
I can’t even speak
my eyes are welling up.
The thought of losing you
is killing me and I know
it’s killing you.
Quincy Mumford

My Prayers

broken20heart1Many times I have prayed for my memories of you to let go their strong hold on me. My prayers are those of a beggar pleading in desperation to be free. PLEASE open my heart to love again. He is never coming back. Please help me find happiness with another. R.L.


I dim my lights & lock my door,
as I spread your pictures on the floor.
I blow the dust off of our past.
I let it all come flooding back,
cause it’s not easy being strong.

Fearing the Things that Make Me Happy

broken20heart1I don’t reveal some of what I fear most. I work overtime keeping them hidden and veiled. I walk around all day fearing the things that make me happy. I have been doing that for my entire life. It’s crazy that I pushed you away because I am afraid of losing you. V.T.

soul mate1

I’m so confused…
I mean, I want to let go…
I want to let go of all this pain,
but I’m afraid I’ll go insane…
he may come back.
I have some hope,
but with everything else,
how can I cope.
I’m going to let go,
but if I wait and see,
will he come back to me?

A Long Time Gone

broken20heart1Love doesn’t come with instructions. One learns through mistakes and heartbreak. I was immature and ignorant when we were a couple. Maybe if I hadn’t acted like a child you would still be here and I wouldn’t have ended up loving someone who’s a long time gone. J.W.


When you lose someone you love,
you never get over it.
You get used to it.
Harriet Morgan

Ready To Love Again

broken20heart1It took time to look back and appreciate how much loving you benefited me. We broke each other’s heart but learned how to love by being together. What was then is no more but our time is a sweet treasure to me. My heart has healed now. I am ready to love again. T.P.

in the light

I hid my heart in a nest of roses,
Out of the sun’s way, hidden apart;
In a softer bed than the soft white snow’s is,
Under the roses I hid my heart.
Algernon Charles Swinburne
