Lifeless Remnants

broken20heart1Sometimes, you have to give up on people. Not because you don’t care, but because they don’t. I held out for as long as I could. My love for you has slowly died from lack of attention. All that remains are near lifeless remnants of what once lived in my heart. T.G.

Moving on is simple,
it’s what you leave behind
that makes it so difficult.

I Tried

broken20heart1I’m not gonna waste my time giving you a second chance. There’s someone who treats me better looking for a first chance. I’m going to give it to her. I tried to love you enough so you’d love yourself. Now I know that’s impossible; you hate yourself. J.S.

I gave you my heart,
thinking you loved me back,
but I guess you just wanted to
use it for a while then smash it.

Time After Time

broken20heart1My Mother said, “What you put up with, you end up with”. She was right. Time after time I forgave you for hitting me. Then later I’d believe how sorry you were. But it got worse. I’m done with you; absolutely and one hundred percent. D.L.

Just watch
my wildest dreams come true,
not one of them involving you.

A Long Time

broken20heart1Loving you taught me many things including how much I could love; the great happiness possible; the depth of pain I could feel and how much I could cry. The tears have slowed, but not stopped. Getting over you and how much I love you will take a long time. H.P.

fall in love with you
is about as pointless
as trying to control
who you fall in love with.

A Bittersweet Moment

broken20heart1Out of the blue I started crying at lunch today, not because I miss you, but because I realized I’m going to be alright without you. It was a bittersweet moment with sadness for what was and happiness for knowing I will love again one day. E.L.

like falling down.
In the end you’re left hurt,
scarred,
with a memory of it forever.

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.

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.
