    You have taught me one of the hardest lessons

    I've had to learn in this life: how to live without someone I love. It's also one of the most painful- my chest still tightens when I think of you, which I try not to do often, but it happens anyway. Maybe you'll say I deserved this, and part of me agrees. But the other part...

    It might as well be yesterday. I could tell by her voice when she coldly said "We need to talk" exactly what was going to happen. I spent the next two hours curled up in a fetal position clutching the toilet, sobbing and throwing up.  She tossed me out like...

    I think at one point in a person's life,

    they will experience this. I have experienced love for people and not getting love in return. It's not a good feeling, and when it happens, you feel like you won't love anyone like you loved that person. But always remember that when you are going through a break up, that God is...

    I'm not in love but I've met someone, but he has a girlfriend and that's complicated too so we started seeing each other and a few months go by and now he says he doesn't think he can fall in love with me but doesn't want to stop seeing me unless we mutually agree to stop seeing...

    It's funny how your heart will yearn

    for that which it can't have. Funnier still how people will take advantage of that. I loved him. He knew it. I told him so. He said it back to me easing his way further into that place inside your chest that hides away where nobody else looks. At first it's only whirlwind and...

    You Don't know Nothing Did you ever feel love

    suffocates you. When night comes your tears fall like rain drops. When morning comes your tears back it again. Do you know how it feels? When you put all your pride aside just to be with him or her knowing he or she did you wrong. Knowing you have doubts in your head but you...

    This is an odd thought.

    .. Its been probably a little over a month since we broke up. We had the cheesiest relationship for over a year, everything was amazing, and she was so perfect to me in everyway. Its a weird thing that we were so happy together and one day she just tells me she doesnt care for me...

    Just the feeling of being in love is an

    incredibly beautiful blissful experience. When the other person does not feel the same it can be such a catastrophic blow to the soul. Is it a gift or a double edged sword? I say both.

    friend. I am trying to ignore it in hopes that it will go away, but the butterflies in my stomach when I see him are very active. The funny thing is that I think I could move past it if I knew how he felt about me, one way or another. I'm not sure why that is.

    Yeah, I did, unrequited love seemed on the cards

    when I met her. But I didn't expect her to cheat on me. I actually cared about her and she threw it back in my face. It was a while ago now, but I can still see that night in my dreams, and I can't sleep at night some times because of what she did
