Like No Other

broken20heart1Memories: 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

Not Even A Little Bit

broken20heart1Everyday 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”

Are You Ready For That?

broken20heart1Love 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…
Jaymie Gassner

Rudderless Ship in Rough Water

broken20heart1My life’s a mess. My heart aches. My head hurts. I can’t sleep. Work sucks. Going to sleep is hard. Waking up feeling sad is harder. I can’t concentrate. I’m not eating. I’m neglecting my friends and family. Without you I am a rudderless ship in rough water. B.C.


I am lost without you.
I am soulless, a drifter without a home,
a solitary bird in a flight to nowhere.
I am all these things,
and I am nothing at all.
This, my darling,
is my life without you.
From “Message in a Bottle”
by Nicholas Sparks

Second Chance

broken20heart1I’m a good person. You know that. But one who made a terrible mistake. There’s no doubt what I did was wrong. All I can do is tell you how much I love you, apologize with all my heart, beg you to take me back and try to convince you I’m worth a second chance. J.R.


We are all mistaken sometimes;
sometimes we do wrong things,
things that have bad consequences.
But it does not mean we are evil,
or that we cannot be trusted ever afterward.
Alison Croggon

Which Way Do I Run

broken20heart1You 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.
Debra Cox

Come Back To me

broken20heart1I understand you’re searching to find your way and sort out what is best for your life. I respect that and the space you say you need, but don’t ever forget I love you very much. I’m not going anywhere and will be waiting for you with open arms to come back to me. R.R.


The road stretches before you
No one knows just how far,
And whatever may befall you
Just remember who you are
If others try to change you,
Think who you want to be,
And I’ll be right here waiting
For when you return to me.
Taken from “I’ll Be Waiting”

I’m Sorry Darling

broken20heart1No matter how much love we share or how hard we try, it’s just not working. We’re an unmatched pair with almost opposite ideas about the future. We both deserve to chase our dreams but that means we can’t be together. I’m sorry Darling. It won’t work. R.W.


There is no amount of communication or work
that can overcome being with someone
does not want what you want.
Kevin Darne

You Say….

broken20heart1You say you love me, but don’t show it. You say I’m the only one, but are secretive about where you go and who you’re with. You say you want us together forever, but refuse to talk about marriage. You say you always tell me the truth, but I know you lie to. S.C.


You say that you love rain,
but you open your umbrella when it rains…
You say that you love the sun,
but you find a shadow spot when the sun shines…
You say that you love the wind,
But you close your windows when wind blows…
This is why I am afraid;
You say that you love me too…
Turkish poem

So Very Wrong

broken20heart1I didn’t really know what love truly was until you entered my heart. With all my being I gave myself to our marriage and believed we’d be together forever. I thought our love was extraordinary and you’ve never lie, cheat or hurt me. I was so very wrong.

Cheating on anyone
is deeper than people realize.
It destroys their outlook on love,
their future relationship
and peace within themselves.
