So I Pretend

broken20heart11No one really knows what is going on inside me. How much it hurts to love you and not be loved in return would engulf me if I let it show. So I pretend. I make like I’m just fine and am over losing you. But I’m not and don’t think I ever will be. J.R.


She is the kind of girl who is
always smiling and loves to laugh.
If you are falling down,
she will be right there to pick you up.
She is the one that always says sorry,
even it it’s not her fault.
Even if she is feeling like the scum of the earth,
she will never let you know.
This is the girl who is afraid of love,
because she has already lost so much.

Never Again

broken20heart11It was this time of year when we met. Those months were the happiest days of my life. I have stopped believing we will get back together, but can’t seem to stop my heart from wishing it would happen. Never again will I be able to give as much as I gave you. L.L.


You’re the one who broke my heart,
you’re the reason my world fell apart.
You’re the one who made me cry,
yet I still love you and I don’t know why.

Do You Realize…

broken20heart1We date for a while. Then you don’t return phone calls. After a few weeks you pop up again and we look like a couple for a few weeks. But you always disappear again. A little at a time you’re tearing my heart up. Do you realize what you’re doing to me? D.W.


I feel I’ve needed you
since the beginning of time
on my way to wisdom I ask,
will you ever be mine?
Derek del Barrio


broken20heart1I have tried to leave you behind. I have tried to evict you from my heart. I have tried to let go. I have tried to move on, but with every new guy I feel more & more like I’ll never be able to replace you. And the sad thing is I know I have already been replaced. A.I.


Forget the times he walked by.
Forget the times he made you cry.
Forget the times he spoke your name.
Remember now you’re not the same.
Forget the times he held your hand.
Forget the sweet things if you can.
Forget the good times & don’t pretend.
Remember now he’s just your friend.

Thrown In All Directions

Why? Why did you stop loving me? Was it something I did? Something I didn’t do? One day you loved me and the next you didn’t. All of a sudden you did not want to kiss me, hold me or make love to me. I am shattered into a thousand pieces thrown in all directions. H.S.

I am bleeding, the cut is deep, and I cannot stop the flow.
The wound is deep within my heart.
I have no way of stopping the never-ending,
Flow of pain and torment,
That takes me captive,
Like a fast-moving river.
My heart lies shattered as broken glass,
Fragmented in a million pieces,

My Heart, My Body, My Soul

No words can express the pain you caused. After you crushed my heart I started shutting people out. I began to hide behind a wall so no one can see how deep my grief was and to keep my tears hidden. I gave you my heart, my body, my soul, my all. You violated me. K.N.

O’ eyes do not weep
Cease the deluge of pain
And heart do not beat
Sad remembrance of him
Mind do not tarry
Lest fear should befall
Upon vows that you carry
And love you recall
“Eyes Do Not Weep” by Kay Salady
