I Have Felt a Broken Heart

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 223 People

    Many Times

    I think it's because I let too much in too fast. I do everything with so much love and compassion that when I get kicked it hits and hurts even more. Broken hearts mend but I think a piece always stays a part of the person who broke it.

    I Wonder What He's Doing Now

    Empty Promisses

    The night came He was in my life The morning shined He touched my heart The sun came He built a castle of love For me, for us The dark came He took his mask down The fire came He burned All the promisses and dreams... Tears came like a river And he broke my heart...

    Far Away

    I love the song "Far Away" by Nickelback.  It's so touching and loving.  Unfortunately it's a painful reminder of all the empty promises, lies, and the broken heart he left me with.  Hopefully there will be a day when I can listen to this song again...

    Several Times

    Over my lifetime I had it happen several times and by several people.  I really don't want to let it be know by whom and how many times since I sometimes wonder if they secretly look at what I say and do when not addressing them directly.

    I just realized that 'feel good with someone'

    and 'love someone' are different meanings. He said to me "I feel good to be with you, talking to you." 5years later and now He say the same words before Exactly, good for him. Bad for me. In fact, a few months ago, He asked me back after I had told him I like him "what do you...
