I Can't Let Go of Him

What do you do when you can't let him go??? 46 People

    My ex and I met whilst working together.

    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...

    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...

    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.
