    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...

    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...

    Those words you said "I want to remain

    as friends" and "I knew you liked me for a while" took me by surprise. I didn't know what they until a couple of hours later when I finally collapsed under the weight of my own heart. Listening to the song "Because of you" by Kelly Clarkson brought me to a silent sob. Googling...

    I met a girl three years ago over the summer,

    when I was fifteen. She was my first kiss. We lost contact for a year or two, then randomly reunited this summer when I saw her at a park. She was and still is so beautiful, my stomach hurts looking at her. Her beauty is unreal. We talked, exchanged numbers...texted. Almost...

    miserable. Missing him. Sounds stupid. He tells me he loves, and misses me. That his heart belongs to me. Yet, he spent all night on his phone texting someone else. I'm so stupid. I become incredibly emotional when I find out. Even smacked him. I'm in the wrong. So stupid. Now I...

    Was with him for a year and a half and I find out that he was cheating the whole time! Crazy...it hurts like hell but I'm glad I found out now before I invested more time in the relationship. I just feel sorry for the women who will cross paths with him. He is a compulsive liar...

    To me, having your heart broken isn't like

    having your whole world shattering. That's too fast, too sudden, too quick. When your heart is breaking, it's more like a slow burn in your chest, the smoke rising up and blinding you, leaving you unable to breathe, unable to feel anything except for pain. I wish heartbreak was...
