    My ex-boyfriend and I of 4 years broke up about

    three months ago. We met our freshman year of high school and ended our senior year. It was an on and off relationship with a lot of bumps. He was my first boyfriend. My family met him, I met his, our "first" time was with each other, and we both had never told anyone i love you...

    I Don'T Think I Will Ever Find Someone.

    I have come to terms with the fact that I will always be single. I always like men who don't like me back. I think I am always going to be that woman who men will just want something physical with but nothing more. It makes me very sad to think this way because I think I am a...

    I realize that writing letters to you no longer

    has the same appeal as it did when we first fell in love, but it could be therapy for me nonetheless, so here it goes. It is another restless night filled with nonsensical thoughts and ideas which then branch out to irrational thoughts and fears that result in me feeling...

    A little over a month has passed

    and it's like the break up has just happened. Sleeping has become my new best friend because it's the only time I do not think about him. I hate the fact that I am consumed with thoughts about him and he's probably out not caring about me at all. I've never experienced pain like...

    I sit here alone in the dark surrounded by

    haunting visions that rip at my heart and soul. Screams echo in silence. Tears fall while demons scorn. Why must the pain flood? Why must I live without ever knowing what it is to be loved? Why must I only know fear and pain? Why? Why? Why was I born? Childhood dreams lie...

    This hurts so bad that death doesn't seem

    so bad. I'm not saying I would ever commit suicide but I totally see the appeal to it. I would never end myself over a man but to be able to get some sleep without dreaming of him would be nice and it seems the only way I'm gonna get that in the near future is if I were dead.

    Why does life have to be unfair?

    I fell in love with a guy that I though will love me the same way I love him but I was wrong. Ever since we met I've been so cruel to myself. I've been forcing myself to him even if I know that he don't truly love me. I did all my best only to find myself alone at the end.
