    A Lesson In Silence

    how many hours can one man spend gazing at a name? just one name that he used to adore. a name that used to roll of the lips like rocks rolling off a Tennessee cliff on a winding south bound road. that same name that he loved so long but now remains a silent statue of what used...

    You know it's ok. He dated my best friend

    when he knew that I had feelings (a lot) for him. Let's face it, I'm 14. What the heck would I know about love? Maybe it's because I was in love with the idea of love? Maybe it was because I was just comfortable being in love with the same person for 3 years, almost 4 now. I was...

    Tremendous Hurt And Anguish Over Breakup. Blindsided

    I loved a guy for over a year and a half. He said he loved me over and over, we shared our life together, knew eachother's families. Then right after New Year's, he broke up over the phone with me. (Cowardly, I know) It came out of nowhere. He said he didn't want to be in a...

    Marriage is sacred.Vows must be forever.

    But there are cheating hearts.Who love to betrayTheir promises go astrayBlinded eyes seek no oneA man suddenly found his womanLong lost dreams of yester years,Hopes regained in the bliss of nowhere...Wishes come true.May this moment be once that can last a lifetime.

    How Long Will It Take?

    So how long does it take to heal a broken heart? Everyone is different. People tend to go from relationship to relationship without experiencing the feelings of the previous breakup. Confusion, hate, back to loving again, it all swirls into one big pile of steaming sh*t doesn't...
