I Love Someone I Can't Have

    We make music together.

    She's gorgeous, young, and clearly admires me. At one point she wanted to kiss, but stopped herself. Now each time she smiles at me I spend the next days until we see each other again thinking about her. It's possible we could be in a passionate affair, but for now she lights up...

    Horses And Fairytales

    I lost it all in a day. How selfish can I be? I had the dream at least and now that is gone too.

    His Name Is Dumby Lol

    He's become my best friend and I think I could have him if I want to. I also want what's best for him, so maybe he's better off with her. This hurts!

    Cat and Mouse...

    I never expected it, didn't seek it out, but somehow fell in love with a married woman. What a mess! Loving someone you cannot have. Emails, phone calls, sweet words back & forth. Ending up where? At an impasse. She has a 13 year old child to raise and feels obligated...

    The Struggle

    I wake up still tired from falling asleep way too late. The sound of my alarm tells me time for breakfast, so eventually after a few thoughts of what kind of a day this is going to be(not even purely pessimistic ones), I get up anyway. I have my usual what-to-wear struggle. I...

    I have a new boyfriend of about 3 or so weeks. I don't feel for him nearly as much as i felt for my ex. And i still have so much love for him. I would love to be with him again. After a 6 or so month relationship we parted because he moved to the other side of the world...

    Its Not Love Its A Crush

    I have a crush on my husbands brother even though I don't necessarily like him much as a person. He is okay but its something about his eyes and his muscular arms that attracts me and I feel like I want him but in real life I don't want him. Its like a fantasy. My husband knows...

    His Girlfriend Suffers More Than Me

    5 years ago, my husband cheated. Out of revenge, I went on a dating site where I caught my husband to purposely find someone to chat with. There was no evidence that my husband dated a woman at that time because I set up a profile to supervise his activities and found no...

    Courage

    You wouldn't take my outstretched hand. Were you scared? Are you afraid of how it makes you feel? That spark that jumps between our skin like electricity, flitting and flying through the air. I know you like to have control, to pick and chose, to have everything in order, in...

    I Wasn't Lonely Until I Met You...

    My whole life I have been quite comfortable with not having a girlfriend. I'd have a fling here or there but never got to the actual point of 'Boyfriend/Girlfriend' status with someone (sometimes because I would look too far ahead and see it not working out so I wouldn't...

    He's Very Loyal

    And he's married to this awful woman who habitually lies to him, as well as abuses both him (emotionally) & their daughter (probably "only" emotionally). He is miserable, but far too loyal to ever leave her.

    Your hair, your face,

    your beautiful eyes...I want to tell you how strikingly beautiful you are every day, but I can't. Because you have someone in your life already, even though he's 1000 miles away. Because society deems it wrong. Because I would lose you as a friend. Your laugh, your smile, your...

    Loving Some One I Can't Have.

    It's heart rending to fall in love with some who cares little or not about you. As I said in my previous write ups, I am married to a man I have no romantic or erotic love for. I married him out of simple obedience and respect for the wishes of my late father, thereby making me...

    In A Land So Dark

    Her blue eyes.... never have I felt so wounded by someone's look. For me there is no light, there waits no light, not in those eyes. I am too old for romance, she is looking for it; she loves her God, I am an atheist (or as close to one as you can get without being one); she...
