    7 years... You were my first at 17.

    I was so clueless about being in a relationship. I took the risk and let you into my life 3 months after we laid eyes on each other. Your "bad boy" side attracted me.. But it was mainly your personality. You made me laugh, you made me blush, you made me open up more, & you made...

    I got dumped by a boyfriend who I thought would never even consider the idea of leaving me. I have developed severe anxiety because of it and am on prescription medication. It is hardly helping. I feel an immense amount of pain every day. I still feel to this day that i am like...

    I hate you making me feel this way.

    .....why you give up just because of the distance. We always say to each other that someday we will be together and it will be worth it. You said you love me and still think about me everyday. But where are you now? You are with someone else, because she is there and you want...

    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.

    Don’t try too hard to bring the old romance

    back. It’s not worth it. Love should be effortless and mutual, and even if you try to force it, it’ll just slip away again, causing you more pain.

    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...

    The love of my life. We were together three

    years and some months. It was love at first sight. We spoke and we just connected on a whole different level. I saw him for who we was. Not how he looked. I could see into his body. I saw his soul. It was like I knew. I dont know what I knew, but I knew. It was like we had...

    Oh joy...the only reason I ever joined this

    site, and I'm at it again. Let's keep this short and sweet: When they say she's not worth it, think about it. Loving someone who doesn't love you back, but cared for you, and now just acts like you don't exist is just a terrible thing.

    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...

    for 4 years. We broke up 6 months ago. I haven't desire whatsoever to be with someone else. I like sex but picturing myself with someone else is really hard. How do I get over her?? I really don't know what to do.

    He's got stress in his life,

    so much on his mind, so much but so little of me. He pushed me away, unknowingly he played, and my heart began to cry. I said we need to talk and he did agree. Who was more sad him or me? I was going to fight for things to stay, but his mind thought things a little differently...

    I'm pretty positive it's been shattered.

    Will you come steal me away, my love? I'm already so done this arrangement. Not with you, surely. But damn it. This is it. I shouldn't even be doing this. I need you to come squeeze my broken pieces back together.

    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.

    My mother is an alcoholic.

    But has hidden it v well. She beat me up last night. Stood on me. Pulled out clumps of my hair. I hit her back. I never should have. No one believes me. Because who would hit their mother. She is a pathological liar. I can't compete with her.
