I Have Had My Heart Broken

    It was horrible. When I was between the ages of

    16 to 17 in 2011 in my first year of sixth form I had a crush on this girl. I liked her because she actually seemed interested in me at the beginning. She was a strange looking girl, but not in a bad way I suppose. She was about average female height, very dark eyebrows, bleach...

    It hurts so much. I miss you

    and i hate myself for missing you. You've moved on out with the "guys" flirting and drinking. While im sitting here crying my eyes out and the worst part? You treated me badly i know that now but i still want you.

    My heart has been teaching me lots of lessons

    lately. He's been in the spot light for awhile now by going through the roller coaster journey of his own. A while ago, exactly a year from now, I was able to understand that I can't control my heart and that was a difficult lesson. I've been gone through some "emotional...

    I've discovered that a romantic relationship

    between a guy and a girl is a lot like a relationship between a pet and it's owner. People might find it offending but just hear me out, because it's very true. I just got off the phone with Nicholas and he was in so much pain because of that despicable woman that I started...

    Broken Promises

    All those promises broken. My heart shattered. Left my body numb. Broken morals. Those were the four things he left me. I gave him everything possible. I tried so hard to make it work, get him back, to love him. We had a good relationship I guess you could say.. We fought a few...

    I started talking to this boy.

    It took me months to get to start to like him back. But in the end I'm glad I got to know him, I'm glad he was there for me for awhile. But I still wish he was. I loved him for a long time and he loved me. We talked every single night sometimes from morning to night. Sometimes...

    I’d go above and beyond

    for you. My love is my pain. My blessing is my curse. My lesson is my heartache. My pride is my shame. What’s left is a broken game that can’t be won, left alone to play again and again. Bleeding and gagging, hoping and believing, knowing in the end I’ll always end up...

    Wasn't interested in a relationship until he put the idea in my head. He told me he loved me, he said I was the one, he told me I was pretty and beautiful and I feel for it. I met him once and he seemed nice. We spoke every night on FaceTime. I was supposed to meet him again but...

    But not anymore. I'm over him.

    I found him to be detached, unbending and difficult at his worse. Independent, influential and original at his best. My thought for him is to understand that compromise is not step back, but a way to break out of deadlock so that everyone can move forward. I'm in a good place...

    He was the love of my life.

    Everyone knows that the heart is a muscle.

    I think it's even deeper than that; When people do resistance training (weight lifting), they are creating little tears in their muscle, which makes them get bigger and stronger once the body repairs it. I think the same is true for the heart, on a metaphoric level; The...
