    I Feel So Numb...

    I should feel lucky that i have a good group of friends who are helping me go through this painful period. It's been two weeks and everyday I had someone come over and stay with me till I can fall asleep. I admit, I can not be alone anymore. My apt feels so empty without her. So...

    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.

    As If Nothing Had Changed......................

    She walked right in as if nothing had changed. She was talking to the little one when I entered the room. She seemed very happy. Disappeared in the bathroom for quite some time. Emerged and was ready to take the little one and go. A little small talk about upcoming events...

    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...

    Respect Vs. Love?..... "Oh, No!"

    I recently answered this question: Loss of respect vs loss of love what would you choose? "if giving in meant loss of respect and being taken for granted and if not giving meant being lonely,what would you choose?" One should never have to choose between respect and love. Respect...

    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...

    Everyone keeps telling me to. Its hard when everything I do and see reminds me of him. I can't find any other man attractive. I've been trying to talk to other guys but I still get so sad. Just looking at any other guy reminds me of him. All I see is his face. I still feel like...

    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.

    After 5 years of being together, and living together, I thought she was waiting for me to propose. And I did. But a few months after the engagement she called it off and wanted to go in separate ways. I guess she always had doubts about me. I had my doubts too, but at the end of...
