I Am Hurting

    The worst part is that I don't

    even know myself what exactly it is that is hurting so bad. It just feels like a punishment, but for what? Perhaps it's just His way of keeping me safe, because I always follow my heart.

    In a loving relationship,

    there are often hurt feelings. We have certain expectations of our partner, and when they do not live up to them we are likely to feel a sense of betrayal. The truth is that if we put our hurt aside for a moment we may realize that our lover was not even aware of the...

    Be careful to whom you give your heart.

    They may not care for it well or may even take delight in destroying it. There are some injuries that never heal.

    If you don't like me for any reason, don't play with me. Too many people play with me. I am tired. If you don't like me, block me. Don't play.

    No One Knows

    Nobody told me that I would hurt this much. No one told me I would fall .. fall so hard for you.... I didn't know. I held your heart in the palm of my hands. Would've gave you everything. But you just had to close the door to our love. You lost a good one!
