    I have been friends with a guy

    for about three years now. I became so close to him that it got to a point where I couldn't care the thought of losing him or him not being around. All we have been this far is just close friends. The first year I knew him I had feelings for him, a crush I guess but those...

    I was crying so hard I could feel the bones in

    my chest as I tried hard to gasp for air. I've been dreaming of him almost everyday. I think about him all the time, even when I'm asleep. Do you know how it feels like to try not to think of someone but never being able to get them off your mind? I told myself I'll never text...

    How do you say good bye to that person you truly love? How do you let go of them in your heart and learn to live your life without him? How do you live each moment and not remember those little things that he did that make you smile? How do you experience a single moment of joy...

    Memories

    i'm tired, of missing you memories cloak me with insomnia. stain me with melancholia. and my eyes burn deep, remembering you. but I will forget not because beneath the cavernous wounds that will become magnificent scars [of you] is a beauty that lingers, lives, shines through.

    The Past Two Nights

    I don't know how much longer I can stand this.  Two sleepless nights, every time I close my eyes I see her beautiful face and her angelic smile.  She opens her mouth and in her heavenly voice she says "I love you."  I open my eyes to find my pillow soaked in tears.

    I have not yet moved on from the relationship i

    had with my ex. Hurts a lot to be betrayed and abused by the person you truly loved. We have a daughter and he just didnt fight for our relationship. Maybe it was just not meant to be. Lets see how things go for me. Life goes on.
