I Can't Let Go of Him

What do you do when you can't let him go??? 54 People

    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...

    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...

    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.

    3 Months Almost And Dying Waiting For You..

    I just can't except the fact that we're over. I can't except that I'll never see you again and that you don't love me. I love you so much and have been waiting for you for so long. I miss you so much. If only you knew how many tears I have shed over you. After everything you...

    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...

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