My heart’s broken. I hardly sleep. I obsess over you day and night. Yet, I know you were not right for me. I knew it all along, but that didn’t keep me from loving you. Knowing I fell for the wrong person does not lessen the pain of this lesson I am being taught. A.P.
Watching you walk out of my life
does not make me bitter or cynical about love.
But rather makes me realize that if I wanted
so much to be with the wrong person
how beautiful it will be
when the right one comes along.
Why did I fall for someone who isn’t really for me? Should I blame myself for loving the wrong one? Or should I blame the man I fell for because he made me feel he was the right one? Or should I just chalk it up to a well learned lesson on the road of life? F.W.
You can not appreciate the right one
unless you meet some wrong ones.
We know our relationship is likely doomed no matter how much we love each other. You’re in the ‘Spring of your life’ and I am in late ‘Fall’. Age does matter, or at least the experience of age or the lack of it matters. For as long as we have, I am grateful. G.W.
The difference between
like, love and in love,
is the same as the difference between
for now, for a while and forever.
There have been a few I wished I could fall in love with, but couldn’t. Then there are those like you who I shouldn’t have fallen in love with, but did. Wanting what is bad for me and refusing what could be good is the insanity of my heart. J.B.
Maybe I was destined to forever fall in love
with people I couldn’t have.
Maybe there’s a whole assortment of impossible people
waiting for me to find them.
Waiting to make me feel the same impossibility
over and over again.

Even though we’re in love our life together is a great struggle. You’re from a country far away. We speak different languages and have trouble communicating. Culturally we’ve innocently offended each other repeatedly. Darling, we can’t do this to each other. E.H.
Moving on is easy.
It’s staying moved on

Deep down I know you’re not good for me. Being with you is like a toothache unattended that will fester and make me sick… heart-sick and heartbroken. Loving you has made me weak, but somehow I have to find the strength to get away from you. P.H.
You aren’t worth my tears
’cause all you do is make me cry.
You aren’t worth trusting
’cause all you do is lie.
You aren’t worth loving
’cause you’re breaking my heart…
So why am staying with you
when we’re better off apart?
I 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….
