    I'm So Hurt

    I feel so hurt and broken inside. My boyfriend left me 3 weeks ago and instead of letting me move on he keeps getting in touch with me for various things and this just destroys me. And everytime he says how much pain he's going through but when I ask why he left me then he says...

    It's always the worst at night.

    All I do is think about him. He's in my every thought and I'm so tired of crying. The worst part is the memories I have and the plans we had. I don't think I will ever love another the way that I loved him.

    I fell in and I fell out.

    I had hopes of a better future but I am uncertain of now. I poured all of me and now I am an empty. I don't how to put back the pieces and at the same time hurting just thinking about it. I never felt so alone.

    It Just Keeps Hurting More...

    A few years ago I fell in love with the most romantic, caring, and compassionate man I had ever met. We ended up getting engaged, moving half across the country and we have the most amazing (yet trying at times) daughter. We've made plans, we've been so happy, the couple that...

    It’s been a week. I’ve decided to write

    down how I feel. I am not really sure why, but I thought it would provide some relief. When she went home, things felt better. I was hopeful that the space would make us work harder. For the last month things had been working great. Then it all ended, as quickly as it started...

    I am 100% unsure on what to do,

    say or feel right now. Last night I had a talk to the person I am seeing -who is currently in the UK- and told him that this distance is really really making me crazy. like I can't handle not being able to see him. I asked him if he really wanted to stay with me and he said yes...

    Not So Happy Ever After

    I started dating when i was sixteen years old and was in a relationship with him for about twenty months (we'll call him Chad). I broke up with him because we argued too much and we just were not getting along anymore, which happened in October 2012. I started a new job in August...

    Sitting in a small break room,

    I sip my hot coffee slowly. Glancing to my left I notice a small framed picture of a family. I can't help but think of my own. "Mrs.Camp," the speaker buzzes, "A patient is waiting on you in room 12C." Sighing, I put my coffee down and grabbed my clip board. Back to work...

    You see, it's a cycle.

    This girl broke this guys heart. Ripped him to shreds and left him crawling. Well that same guy, I fell in love with him. Except he couldn't help but split me open and leave me broken and crying. A little while later, I found this guy. I loved him. And he loved me. But...

    It hurts me to say, but I was right.

    Right about everything. It was too good to be true. And like clockwork, just like everything else, it ended. I stood there, frozen, as I watched the floors underneath our feet crumbling, the walls we built together tumbling. And I still stood there holding up the roof, because...

    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...

    You probably found love again, while I'm still heart broken. How can you move on so fast? But don't tell me that you found love, I don't want to be more hurt. I don't want to know that she exist because she didn't know that I existed when you were still mine and even now, she...

    enough? Or did I love you too much? Do you even care about me? Am I wasting my time trying to love you? You told me you'd never hurt me like he did. So tell me, did that mean you could hurt me worse?

    The perfect girl you

    once loved is gone. Her faith is broken. Her body is covered in scars that will never fade. Her heart is locked up in chains so tight, even Houdini couldn't escape. Her crystal blue eyes no longer shimmer like the sea. Her smile is plastered on like a tattoo, so no one can see...

    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.

    "Every story has an beginning,

    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.
