    It's been over a year

    since she left. She had become my best friend. She could build me up or tear me down with a single look. For 7 years I tried to make her happy. In the end, she told me I did not know how to love her. She was wrong...I loved her with all of my heart. I was thinking the other day...

    At some point in our lives,

    we want the forbidden fruit. In love with someone who is completely and utterly unattainable. Like your handsome high school teacher, or your brother's best friend, or even your cute youngest uncle. I think Channing Tatum and I are soul mates. He just doesn't know I exist...

    Some Impossible Girl

    I’m always falling in love with some impossible girl, somebody never meant to love me, sweetness from some other world. I’m always falling apart from some improbable pain, sorrows never meant to break me, bullets with other men’s names. she’s never there when...

    It's An Innate Tendency

    I do believe that human beings tend to gravitate to those who we can't have. Especially when we feel connected to a person and want them in our lives for the long haul. It's an interesting thing, because those who fancy us and give us attention, we tend not to want.I know that in...

    Wish He Was Mine

    I've never been the type to be unfaithful to my husband. When I took the vows, I meant them wholeheartedly. However, he has become progressively more emotionally and verbally abusive over the years. It's very possible he has undiagnosed borderline personality disorder. Because...

    Yes, you already have me,

    but I cannot have you because we're never meant for each other. Yes, it hurts a lot. It hurts more than a punch. From the first day I met that person in the hallway, until now seeing his tweets and messages make me feel happy. But then realizing one big thing, I cannot have him...

    who has so completely melted my heart it isn't even funny. I am not a romantic or mushy person by nature, but this man brings out the best in me, and turns my brain into a puddle. But there are numerous different reasons why we can't be together. One- he views me as a friend...

    I hate that.. When you fall head over

    for someone who you think you can have. You get all warm and fluffy. And feel like they might feel the same. And then your world crumbles beneath you. And your center is lost. That one person. Isn't yours. But you are theirs.

    I fell in love with a very distorted image of

    who he really was. Once I found out he wasn't all that great, instead of moving on, I remained in love with the idea of him. It's been a year and he still occupies my thoughts every day

    We flirt(ed) all the time in person,

    we'd hug and sit together and have inside jokes at the back of the bus even though he's 3 years older and it looked slightly weird to all his and my friends. We'd talk occasionally on Facebook. Now he's left. He's going to uni so he's never getting my bus again. That's it, poof...

    Broken Hearted

    How do you make the hurt go away???? I can't pretend to be strong when I know we'll eventually have to work together. Finding another job with the perks I have is impossible. I can't stop thinking about him. I don't have anymore strength to pull myself out of this one!!!!!!!

    As I often do. I often wonder if you think of me too. Did you sleep well? Did you eat? Are you happy? Well are you? I would love nothing more then to wake up to you every single day. Until my days are taken away. I often get caught up in my fantasies of you. Silly me for ever...
