    I Know The Pain....

    I know the pain. I know the tears. I know the numbness you crave for when you have a broken heart. the Broken heart pain is worse than physical pain. Sometimes, you literally want to rip your heart out of your chest, because that would hurt a LOT less than the pain you feel from...

    Yeah. Your whole world loses it's colour.

    Food tastes bland. Can't rest. Can't sleep. And the urge to cry when you're by yourself. Been there.

    You said you were afraid to leave.

    Funny, you faced your fears and you left.

    I thought being in love would be the greatest

    feeling I can ever have yes it's true and yes it's not true. I feel broken because I just made a decision that would change my whole life. I have pushed away the person that I love because I know if I don't do this I would hurt him more. I'm afraid if I take it long, he would...

    I love someone and now she is gone.

    why dose it hurt so? I know it will all pass but that dose'nt make it easier. I could spend time with a number of others but I would rather be alone now. I think that I will find someone else at some point but then do I want to open up and care for someone, risking being hurt...

    All The Dreams Of The World

    I am sure each one of us know how it feels. It is an experience that shows we have feelings. I can still remember when I was a teenager and got my heart broken. A boy at school felt ashamed to be with me, the fear of his friends to make fun of him for being with an Asian was...

    She doesn't speak to me any more,

    I'm not the man she thought I was, I'm more of a boy who dreams big but doesn't understand reality and all it's unpredictable natures. I looked for more when I should have found stability for us and the future we could share. That's what she said to me. The truth is I dreamed...

    It Takes A Toll, Be Nice To Yourself

    I couldn't sleep last night.

    Love is not written on paper,

    for paper can be erased. Nor is it etched on stone, for stone can be broken. But it is inscribed on a heart and there it shall remain forever.

    People always think that the most painful thing

    in life is losing the one you value. The truth is, the most painful thing is loosing yourself in the process of valuing someone too much and forgetting that you are special too.

    since he broke up with me, and maybe I should be getting over him by now, but it still really hurts. I can't help but wish he'd come back and say it was a mistake. Realistically I know he won't so I need to get over that. I just still miss him.
