Just Passing Through

broken20heart1I’ve decided instead of wiping away my tears, I’m going to wipe away the person who makes me cry. That’s you. It’s hard to let go but I have learned some people aren’t meant to be in our lives forever. Some are just passing through to teach us a lesson. P.H.

For Only So Long

broken20heart1When a woman gives up, it’s not because she doesn’t love you, but because she’s tired of getting hurt and feels like you’ll never care. For only so long can a girl hang on while a man makes her feel helplessly inadequate and unneeded, like you do me. N.M.

Sometimes letting things go
is an act of far greater power
than defending or hanging on.

After Tonight

broken20heart1Why do I want you back? Why can’t I hate you? Why can’t I let go of our memories? Why do I find it hard to forget you? So many ‘why’s’ but the most unanswered one is why do I still love you after you said goodbye because you wanted your freedom? WHY? L.L.

After tonight, as it all ends,
will we end up just as friends?
After tonight, as you leave my side,
will you cry like I do till the tears subside?
After tonight, as you tell me we’re through,
will you ever realize I still love you?

Absolutely Nothing

broken20heart1My prayers are often that I’ll stop loving you, stop wanting you and give up. I guess I have not hurt enough yet. I can’t believe I think that because you have hurt me badly over and over again. Somehow I must find the strength to get away from you. R.H.

I wish I had
NEVER MET YOU.
Then there would be
No need to impress you.
No need to want you.
No need for loving you.
No need for crying over you.
No need for heart breaks.
No need for pain or tears.
No need for forgotten promises.
No need for rejected hugs.
No need for crying myself to sleep.
No need for acting like you care.
No need for everything you’ve done
to make me feel like absolutely nothing.

Misplaced Sense of Honor

broken20heart1I wonder if you want me. I wonder if I make you happy. I wonder if I’m right for you. I wonder if you still love me. Under your smile, your sadness shows. Don’t stay if you don’t want to be here. Hanging on because of some misplaced sense of honor is wrong. S.O.

Walking, working, barely breathing
My thoughts, far away
Heart aching, mind racing
Sleep does not come easily, nor last long….

What’s Wrong Inside You

broken20heart1Loving you is an exercise in extremes. We have great times filled with sweetness and love. Then there are the dark ugly days when you’re a completely different person. I’ve asked you over and over to get help for what’s wrong inside you. I can’t take this! J.B.

It’s You…

broken20heart1I begged and pleaded but you said you didn’t love me anymore. You wanted to leave, so I had to let you go. Life was hard for a long time. I’m doing okay now, but I have not forgotten you. The part of my heart with your name on it will never completely heal. R.P.

Baby, baby.
It’s you I’m thinking of.
In the morning
when I wake up.
In the evening,
it’s you that I dream of.
