    It Hurt

     I loved him for four years, and when he finally asked me, I wasn't sure if I could do it, but I said yes, and one year later, he left me. He's now with my best friend, and they've been together for almost a year, and he loves her, and I can't stop loving him.

    That love doesn't seem to be two ways.

    His attention is the only attention that matters, but he ignores me. When I bring it up he shoots me down by name calling.

    To ache for them but knowing you can't ever

    mention how you feel. Suspecting they feel the same but being stuck to someone you don't love anymore. Looking for them every morning you go into work, that girl who lights up the very room with her presence. That makes the miserable grind of work bearable with her jokes...

    My girl makes me feel

    so happy yet so sad. We've been going on 6 months daiting and I know I haven't been the greatest person. I've lied to her a couple times of small things so she wouldn't worry. Which I know it's the wrong thing to do to someone with major trust issues. I'm trying my best to show...

    You cannot love someone unless you love yourself. BULLSHIT I have never loved myself, But U, oh God, I loved U so much, I almost forgot hating myself.
