    Long Time

    Yesterday he told me

    that maybe he convinced himself he doesn't love me that way anymore because he had to, in order to cope. I told him he is the strong one, because he was able to believe it and I couldn't lie to myself. Yesterday felt like drowning with him. Why is love so hard?

    It’s been 10 months.

    It still hurts. It is still able to tear me apart. It’s still able to cut me in two, and make me shudder at my frayed edges. But I won’t tell you. Today I read something beautiful about love. And I couldn’t help thinking of you. And I couldn’t help crying. And I felt...

    She Loves Me!

    I remember when we broke up because I couldn't sleep more that 2 hours a night the entire week leading up to it.  I was terrified of it.  At first I thought it was because she was so gorgeous and a just a bit "out of my league," and I didn't want to be alone...

    This Was Me....

    I used to be best friends with my ex-boyfriend.  We hung out at least twice a week.  At first it was okay.  I felt like I wasn't being affected.  Just friends.  Really.  For one year.  Not physical at all in the beginning.  Later maybe a...
