    I have been in a relationship with a man for the last 5 years on and off. We were both married when we met and he made it clear he was interested in me. At first i told him straight i was taken and not interested. He spent weeks persuing me, texts, emails, calls, begging me to...

    I Believe I Am A Loving Person Who Just Happens To Feel Broken Inside

    My name is Sassah and I am 46 years young. I feel broken because I don't seem to have the motivation to do what I need to do. I am going to try to be as honest as I can by listening not to what my mind (ego) wants to say, because I have found that that ego wants to keep me safe...

    Melancholy Seems To Be My Normal

    I don´t know more what to do again.

    I´ve wasted my all life. First of all in a marriage which has costed me always my life. After running away from my husband I´ve done everything to make the life as good as possible for my son. And now I am just afraid. Afraid of talking, afraid of showing any emotion, afraid...

    Feeling so much and so deeply is a wonderful

    and terrible thing. It is incredible to get lost in emotions and sensations until the world becomes almost overwhelmingly fragrant and colorful. But, it is equally awful to feel things so intensely when faced with betrayal and broken hearts. Would I trade the scathing pain...

    Darkness Surrounds My Soul

      I sit in the dark in deep contemplation.  No light will enter my soul as it is entwined with my broken heart. My soul is shattered before you; my heart quivers in an attempt to beat and flow life throughout my body.  In the dark I sit and cry, seeking to feel my...

    It's so difficult to explain.

    I lost my first love from childhood many years ago, and even after all these years it still feels like yesterday. Once in a while I get into this mood and place where I look to my past, and recall faintly how limitless and carefree my life used to be. She was the other half of...

    Nothing seems to bring me any joy,

    not even my ability to write descriptive romantic sentences. I feel as if part of me has died. I can't seem to bring myself to focus on any task for an extended part of time. I feel myself slipping into a cold dark abyss I will not soon return from. I am outside of this world...

    I broke and called him last night.

    . I asked if he was doing okay and he said he was "keeping himself busy"... I also asked if he missed talking to me and he said he did, but he also realised how much we talked and now he has time to do things that he had been wanting to do for ages... He was typing on Facebook...

    So he told me tonight

    that he needs to focus on himself and doesn't have the time nor the money to have me as a distraction in his life. He says it's not because he wants to be with someone else but because he needs to focus on himself. My heart is breaking.. Again :(
