The Worst Loneliness

Losing you has thrown me into a tailspin. Once I liked who I was, but now it’s difficult to even look at my reflection in a mirror. How long will I punish myself for hurting you & driving you away? Will this pain ever leave? How can I forgive myself?  How do I end this torment? R.B.

The worst loneliness
is to not be comfortable
with yourself.
Mark Twain

Hard To Breathe

When we broke up, I could hardly breathe. Once I caught my breath, I didn’t want to eat. When food interested me again, I wanted to be alone. Eventually I was able to be with people again but they made me think of you. Those thoughts made it hard to breathe. S.J.

Emotions are wild horses.
It is not explanations that carry us forward,
but our will to go on.
Paulo Coelho

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,

Forget and Smile

You said we’d be together again; to give you a few months to get things together. Not even a week later you wouldn’t even speak to me. For weeks I tried again and again to talk to you, but you would never listen, so I finally had to say to my self goodbye to you forever. C.S.

Remember me when I am gone away,
Gone far away into the silent land;
When you can no more hold me by the hand,
Nor I half turn to go yet turning stay.
Remember me when no more day by day
You tell me of our future that you plann’d:
Only remember me; you understand
It will be late to counsel then or pray.
Yet if you should forget me for a while
And afterwards remember, do not grieve:
For if the darkness and corruption leave
A vestige of the thoughts that once I had,
Better by far you should forget and smile
Than that you should remember and be sad.
“Goodbye” By Christina Rossetti
