Love is Insanity

I thought I could save you. My heart told me if I loved you enough you would change. So many times you convinced me you had beat your addiction, but after a short time you always let the drugs take you over again. I love you but I can’t live in this craziness any more. A.E.

Well, love is insanity.
The ancient Greeks knew that.
It is the taking over
of a rational and lucid mind
by delusion and self-destruction.
You lose yourself,
You have no power over yourself,
You can’t even think straight.
Marilyn French

My Blood Beats Out Your Name

You were too tired to go out, so I went to a movie by myself.  I called afterwards, got voice mail and assumed you went to bed early. What a shock to see you a later outside Starbucks kissing a guy. You said you loved me and I was the only “one”. I’m a stupid fool! D.S.

All the wishes of my mind know your name,
And the white desires of my heart
They are acquainted with you.
The cry of my body for completeness,
That is a cry to you.
My blood beats out your name to me, unceasing, pitiless—
Your name, your name.
Mary Carolyn Davies

Kiss Me Goodbye

I knew you were not right for me soon after we met. But I fell in love with you just the same. For a year I was faithful to you while I was just another number saved on your phone. You hurt me, but I’m wiser now and will know better next time! K.M.

We choose it, win or lose it.
Love is never quite the same.
I love you, now I’ve lost you.
Don’t feel bad, you’re not to blame.

So kiss me goodbye
And I’ll try not to cry.
All the tears in the world
Won’t change your mind.
There’s someone new
And she’s waiting for you.
Soon your heart will be
Leaving me behind.
Les Reed/Barry Mason

A Hole In The World

Where did I go wrong? What does she do better than me? Do I deserve this? All I do is cry now and want you back even though I know what you did was so very wrong. You have me spinning in circles. Inside I know the truth: you are a pathetic liar and don’t deserve me. J.B.

 Where you used to be,
there is a hole in the world,
which I find myself
constantly walking around
in the daytime,
and falling in at night.
I miss you like hell.
Edna St. Vincent Millay

My Love Was Righteous and True

You were all lies. My love for you was righteous and true in every moment. I was blinded by love. Now I feel like I am running in circles trying to figure out what to do.  Knowing you are in love with another man makes me feel like I am dying inside. E.T.

Friendship often ends in love;
but love in friendship –


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.
