    I know this is so cliché,

    but I can't stop thinking of him! No matter what I'm doing throughout the day either at school or at home I find myself thinking about him. Maybe even obsessing! I hate myself for this, it's inflicts so much emotional pain knowing he doesn't want me the way I want him. I thought...

    Well, I appreciated all the responses from

    others in the same situation. It helped a bit and there was some good advice. I wish I could say I was cured on my unrequited love, but it's like the tides. I have ebbs and flows, and currently I'm in a huge flood tide. While I know I can't be with this person, I can't stop...

    We all want that fairytale romance.

    ...even when we realize it doesn't exist!! There is no Prince Charming...there is no perfect man....only the one we create in our heads.

    Lol

    Damn straight :P I am in love with someone I can't have. But as long as he's happy, I'm happy too ^~^ And if you truly are in love with someone, that's all you should be concerned with. I know that it's difficult to get into that state of mind, but if they have found someone...

    Enough is enough

    I really need to get this off my chest as its tearing me apart. I've know this girl for over a year. We became good friends and spoke eveyday, and I quickly fell for her. I've told her I love her, many times. Her reaction is always to question me about it, she will ask me "why do...

    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...

    How Did This Happen??!!

    OK, here it goes....... I'm a married man, my wife (in my opinion) is very beautiful, OUTSIDE, she can be (not as often as I would like, or need) very sweet, kind, affectionate, fun, outgoing ..... But more often than not, she's just snotty, a bit rude, quick to snap.....I tell...

    that I am a regular at this coffee shop in my area, and there is this guy there who is the most amazing person I have ever met....but he has a girlfriend. Great. He is just beautiful both on the inside and the outside and it kills me to know I cant have him. Although, whenever I...

    We fight, we barely even talk,

    if I say hi then he gives me dirty looks with those eyes that melt me fast, if he only knew I love him but he hates the hell out of me. Sadly... I still love that guy.

    I am thinking of you.

    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...

    It's been almost 3 months

    since we broke up and 1 month since we last spoke, and my ex texts me, "I miss you!" What's she really thinking? Where does this come from all of a sudden? We broke up because she didn't want to have a long distance relationship. I've figured, she's in a different town, with...

    I really love him so much.

    He's 25 years older and devoted to his wife. His wife is a lovely person. He's resisted me for years. We've grown closer over the last few months, and I'm even more deeply in love. I wonder if any part of him wants me at all? Just one kiss. One time. Ok maybe more than...

    Hello EP readers. I don’t know what I hope to

    gain from sharing all this, but I feel compelled to do so. You will probably think I’ve lost my mind by the time that you get to the end of it. Well, as the old song said “don’t feel lonesome if you do.” I am in love with my soulmate. The one comfort I have is that I...

    She takes it slowly at first

    but learns that this is the person for her and that she has no need to be hesitant as she will never find out unless she takes a leap of faith. Someday a beautiful moment might come when I will be one step closer. I don't know if this is "correct" but it's my interpretation...

    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...

    There is nothing more beautiful than the way the ocean refuses to stop kissing the shore no matter how many times it is sent away......... ...........and so love never expires in my heart no matter how many times I tell my soul to turn away.

    Adrift in a sea of tears dividing us,

    I feel my moods range from joyful to despondent. Tied in bonds, with no key to unlock the wedlock we are stuck in confinements of our mind. Over bits & bites my fiery heart claims possession of you.

    I am desperately in love with someone I can

    NEVER have. I look up at the sky and think over and over again- why do I even exist in this selfish, cynical world? Tears of frustration and anxiety always well up in my eyes because of him. We crave for handful of attention. We try to look the very best just for our loved ones...

    and hard, butterflies in tummy, he makes me feel. I havent felt alive in a while. He makes everything just that much better. Doesnt matter if it ends today, tomorrow, in a week, month, or a year. Right now he is mine and that is all that matters. Enjoy the time. ♡
