I Am Helpless

broken20heart1I’ve discovered torment greater than knowing I hurt you; quietly standing by knowing someone else is causing you pain and suffering. When the fault was mine I could at least try to make amends and make things better. When it is someone else I am helpless. B.C.

There are wounds
that never show on the body
that are deeper and more hurtful
than anything that bleeds.

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.

It’s Takes A Lifetime

broken20heart1I’ve accepted the fact that we can’t be. I’ve also accepted that you’re going to be that one person I carry with me for the rest of my life, the one that is always going to make my heart jump a little and my stomach tie up in knots no matter how happy I am otherwise. R.W.

It takes only a minute
to get a crush on someone,
an hour to like someone,
and a day to love someone,
but it takes a lifetime
to forget someone.

My Life In Our Past

I’ve been laying here all night, listening to the rain and talking to my heart trying to explain that it has to let go. I am so tired of catching myself wondering what might have been. It’s exhausting to spend my life in our past. I think about you now and then constantly. T.F.

The truth is, unless you let go,
unless you forgive yourself,
unless you forgive the situation,
unless you realize that the situation is over,
you cannot move forward.
Steve Maraboli

One of Those Days

Today was just one of those days where everything I did reminded me of you, every song I heard somehow related to you and every couple I saw brought back memories of us. I hate days like today, because they remind me of the one thing I don’t have. YOU!   B.C.

Frustrated because I can’t tell if it’s real.
Mad because I don’t know how you feel.
Upset because we can’t make it right.
Sad because I need you day and night.
Angry because you won’t take my hand.
Aggravated because you don’t understand.
Disappointed because we can’t be together,
but still I’ll love you forever.

Through Time and Distance

I tell myself you’re not allowed to hurt me anymore. But when I do it just hurts more. Letting you go and ending the love in my heart for you is the hardest thing I’ve ever attempted. So far I’m failing at forgetting and succeeding only at loving you through time and distance. L.D.

Pain, pain go away!
Please do not come back another day.
Tears falling down my face
oh how I wish for his warm embrace.
How can he stand there and break my heart
How did we allow us to grow so far apart?
My dream of us being happy is not going to come true
all I am feeling is down and blue.
Pain, pain go away
bring me back to another day
where he loved me and
we thought we were meant to be.
Taken from “Pain, Pain Go Away” by Kari Johnston

All Too Late

In our early years together you were magic to me. However, as the mystery unfolded to become the known I took you for granted and wandered off to find someone better. Too late I’ve learned you are the love of my life and now you won’t even speak to me. I’m a fool. A.B.

Love is easy to know,
easier to let slip away
and easiest to grieve for.
It is hard learned wisdom to realize
if I had spent as much energy on loving
as I have searching and yearning for love,
my heart would constantly run over with affection.
James Browning

Eighty Miles An Hour

Attempting to look ahead at life is like trying to see through a windshield without wipers on a car going eighty miles an hour. Yet looking through the rear view mirror is mostly clear. I did not realize how much I loved you until you were gone. It makes me weep to remember. C.S.

It relieves me not, crying over you,
While in the endless silence of night
The dawn creeps forward
Shunning the darkness in light.
My tears waste away into nothingness,
While my soul reaches for you
My arms betray their strength
Trembling, wishing for us two.
From “I Cry Over You, My Love” By Mistress of Eternity

Paint A Perfect Smile

You broke my heart and six months later I forgave you and let you back into my life. Then you left me in ruin a second time. Now you’re back begging for forgiveness again. I can’t do it. I just can’t. Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice, shame on me. S.R.

Paint a perfect smile
Straight onto my face.
Wash it off good
Don’t leave any trace,
Of our happy times
The days we shared.
Hours of togetherness
Back when we cared
But we lost touch
My hand slipped from yours.
We went our ways
And closed open doors.
Then times got tough;
I needed you.
My heart was empty
My sadness grew.
I silently wept
As you left me there
Lost and alone.
I just can’t bare
Another lost heart
Or even more crying.
I need someone here
To do what you never would
Paint a permanent smile
The way you never could.
From Paint a Smile by ‘Hanna Smoothie’

Two Different Puzzles

Once I looked clearly at all the pieces there wasn’t a puzzle anymore. We just don’t fit together. The two of us are far too different. It won’t work!  All the pieces are from two very different puzzles. It hurts like hell to say, but we’re not meant to be together. H.W.

Frustrated because I can’t tell if it’s real.
Mad because I don’t know how you feel.
Upset because we can’t make it right.
Sad because I need you day and night.
Angry because you won’t take my hand.
Aggravated because you don’t understand.
Disappointed because we can’t be together,
but still I’ll love you forever.
