    My Heart Is Breaking

    I never thought you could really love someone you weren't in a relationship with until I met him. From the moment I first saw him I knew he would be someone I liked and it began with a big crush that was, sorry for the pun, "crushed" when I found out he had a girlfriend. But I...

    It's this immense feeling of suffocation.

    It brings you down no matter how strong you are or how strong you pretend to be. It kills you. From the inside, slowly, very slowly. And when you think it's finally so shattered it can't get worse. It gets worse. It hurts even more and before you know it, you are lying there...

    I have been "in love" (more like infatuation) with a guy for three years. We had constant up and downs where he would get depressed and cut off communication with me for months. I would be so heart broken and miserable and most of the time he seemed fine. He would hurt but not...

    People say that when your heart is broken,

    it's just a figure of speech, that your heart can't actually break. If that's the truth, why do I feel like I'm in physical pain, like I can't breathe and that my chest is collapsing in on itself? I wish that I could just let go but I'm so addicted to the pain you cause me.
