I Can't Let Go of Him

What do you do when you can't let him go??? 55 People

    He's Everything I've Ever Known...

    When I was in high school I was involved with this guy on and off. We had a really strong connection. I desired him mentally, physically, and emotionally. He was my everything. I don't even know how to describe it but everything about our relationship was so wrong, but felt so...

    My ex and I met whilst working together.

    Initially, we hated each other, but we came to like each other. On a drunken work night out, we ended up sleeping together. We maintained a "friends with Benefits" relationship for about 7 months, until I developed feelings for him that i could no longer ignore. Sadly, he didn't...

    My greatest experience in life has nothing to

    do with people, because people will always fail us at some point. I have had more (abundantly more) than my fair share of pain. People I have loved more than anything have wielded a sword or two in my direction, and quite accurately, I might add. Emptiness and hopelessness have...

    I'm All Alone

    Picture perfect memories scattered all around the floor, and I wonder if I ever cross your mind, for me it happens all time. It's a 1:15 I'm a little drunk, I said I wouldnt call but I feel all alone wishing you were here with me.

    He is always on my mind

    and it is affecting my work and other relationships. We have been apart for many, many years, but he has never left my mind for long. He teased me 2 years ago by contacting me and then he was gone again. That communication with him only made things worse. Now I find myself...

    The Long Goodbye.

     It's been years and he's moved on completely.  I pretend I've moved on and sometimes I believe it myself, but the truth is I am stuck like the U2 song:  "stuck in a moment and I can't get out of it."  My life is passing me by.  I've turned down...
