I Feel That Something Is Missing From My Life

    Ever since the break up I feel

    that I'm not the same person and that I forget something every day. Every time I think about her it makes me sick to my stomach knowing she is being held by another... Broke up 3 years ago. My life is taking a path that I'm not sure how I've managed to get on. I am not happy...

    I've started to realise

    that I am missing having a father figure. I don't know if I ever really had one. I grew up thinking it was illegal or something for fathers to give their daughters any sort of affection. The only affection I ever had from my dad was a hug, in 2008, when he tried to worm his way...

    I've felt like this for years.

    It's frustrating!!! I've tried to take different paths, to see if I can fill this void but so far nothing. I'm constantly trying new things to see if something will just fall into place. Sometimes I fear that the thing missing from my life is me.

    That Someone Is You

    I don't know where you are or what happened to you. I don't know why you left. I just know that my heart is breaking. I wonder, are you sick? Are you lonely? Are you even alive? I fear one day that you will disappear and I will never know what happened. Is this that day? Is this...

    My husband died nearly 6 years ago.

    I miss him so much and I miss his companionship and someone who cared about me. Someone who I meant something to. I always said I would never need or want anyone else in my life if something ever happened to him. But now I just miss being important to someone.

    The Puzzle The Enigma

    Something's missing. It always has been. I think no one really knows me. The ugly parts are pretty hidden. I don't like them, but I admit that they are there. I don't trust anyone. I want to trust, desperately. I want to show all my hidden desires and weirdness and to be...

    Breakup

    It was cool, breezy, a hint of autumn mixed with the remnants of what had been the summer my life changed. Not a sappy love story, I am certainly no prince charming but something real. Those who say love is intangible have never felt love so real you can touch it, caress it, and...

    I have no idea what it is,

    but the minute I am bored or not around people or have nothing to do I feel it. I feel empty and like there is something else I should be doing or feeling but I can't figure it out. What is it?

    with my current boyfriend, but there was a beautiful sense of control when I was single. To be lewd, I could have whoever I wanted, at any time. I could play freely on my own time, with multiple men and women who wanted to touch me as well. I guess the end message is, enjoy...
