    I have a kind heart and a gentle soul

    and I often get hurt. I tend to put everything into a relationship and love deeply and unconditionally. I want to find someone that will accept me for who I am and appreciate me for the kind hearted, gentle, loving and affectionate person that I am.

    Some things I just can't forget.

    If forgiving is also forgetting, I wish I could just get amnesia. Things hurt so much and kind of linger whether you want them to or not. I'm still able to have fun and enjoy life in a way of course, but I'm not the "me" that I used to be. I miss the simple "me".

    I walked in silence in the shadows A new day

    brimming with promise and hope. I glance up at the symbol of so much dispair A whisper of long forgotten heartache borne upon the spring breeze floated past me like so much smoke from a long extinguished candle. Too much for me to bear Yet the beauty of her sadness the quiet...

    Sometimes I think I wear my heart on my sleeve

    too much, that's why I switched my wardrobe to sleeveless shirts.

    I breathe you in deeply,

    holding wet lips together to keep you close. You casually make yourself at home in my soul, painting over forgotten truths. Your soft laugh quiets me and smiles a knowing smile. I breathe you in deeply, because that's all I have.

    How could I hate you

    so much and yet love you even more? You are bad for me and I know, yet I'm too weak to let go. I wish I could take off all your ugly like a wet coat and throw it far away.

    I got hurt, again. The weakness of a girl

    who feels attached easily : you still like that person even if he hurts you. when will I stop crying over stupid things. My head knows it's pointless but my heart still yearns for it.

    I still think of you .

    .. and I still can't understand what happened. Im not sure I actually miss you, you seemed to think I was falling for you ( I think ?) its more the not understanding why - if I can't understand it I can't learn from it .. Its strange how open you can be with someone on here...

    I feel things deeply.

    I believe it when someone tells me that they love me. I get hooked fast. I fall hard. The other person doesn't always feel the same...most of the time actually. Then I am left to pick up the pieces of my life again. You would think that I would eventually learn. But I...

    I'm hurting. I'm broken.

    I feel alone and helpless. My heart aches so badly I can hardly stand it anymore. I don't know what to do or how to feel better.

    I miss... The feeling of another's skin against

    mine Becoming one with another Getting lost in someone's eyes Uncontrollable laughter about nothing Being held and feeling adored Happiness in someone's voice when they hear from me The simplest things are what I miss the most.

    we dated for a few years

    but broke up because I was so stupid to let her go. I fell so deeply in love with her, I loved spending every second with her, I loved to just joke around with her. I fell so hard and fast for her... but she moved on, I do support her 100% because she is still my friend, but it...

    The feeling when someone you love made you feel

    like you are making up stories to them just so you could have their attention is greatly hurtful. I find it pretty offensive for them to actually made me feel like a fool and worst; a dumb. And making me feel like a liar made it so much worst than the first two that I have...

    I covet her smile and the way she looks at him.

    I pour through memories as I pour another one. I shouldn't be here. She shouldn't be there...as I pour out another one.

    Even though I feel deeply

    and continue to get hurt I change who I am. I love hard...it's just who I am and there are much worse characteristics to have.

    Emotionally exhausted from giving myself wholly

    I do feel deeply and often get hurt

    because of it. I went to my doctor of five years yesterday and he said that I'm an empath and things affect me differently than other people. He said he's known that about me for some time. I told my dad what he said and my dad said, "Wow! What great things God could use you...

    Hold fast, while I kiss the wine off your lips.

    I Found The Answer

    I was born with a good heart that feels so much for others in pain or sufferings. Sometimes i was badly hurt because i feel too much. Now i know how to surrender my feelings to God. Only HIM can help.
