    I know you don't reciprocate my feelings.

    I know I should not put hopes. I know very well of the things you do. But will i always have that soft spot towards you?

    The I. Q. of Love.

    Love is stupid. Love is dumb. It has an IQ comparable to a packet of stale crackers. Don't get me wrong, love is without doubt one of the most important forces in anybody's life; it is wonderful, it is the closest many of us come to living with magic. It's just not...

    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...

    Are you hurting? Do you find yourself crying

    out inwardly? Is it because you cannot get that one person off your mind? Has it been a long time since that person sent you a text, phoned you or emailed you? Does it make you ache, is the pain enough to make you scream? When you give a person that much importance, your...

    I decided to go on a date last night with

    someone new. It's the first time I've dated since things ended with the man I loved. It went horribly. This new man started to try and kiss me, hands were wandering... And you know what I did... I burst into tears. I'm not ready to let go. I'm not ready to move on.

    and knew him long before that. we moved in together and got the "the world at my finger tips" feeling. I loved him. He cheated on me. I tried to communicate with him. I even suggested an open relationship. No matter what I tried, he always lead a secret second life. Goes to show...

    When You Are Rejected

    As we all know, getting rejected is never pleasant. In fact the feeling it leaves you with really sucks and is sometimes hard to get over, and it's especially worse when the reasons are beyond your control. However, if anything good came out of my latest rejection, it was that I...

    A Poem About Loving Someone That Doesn't Love You Back!!

    When you love someone that doesn't love you back When you've given so much of yourself-mind, body, and soul and that person could care less. When theyre all you think about night and day and they hardly think of you. When they dont call, text, or come by like they said they...

    It Takes Two

    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...

    It's not an easy process so if anyone tells you it is, it doesn't matter how long or how short you lasted, the thing is you were together and there were memories and that makes it hard... It's usually the small ones that pain the most... Small but the impact is huge, or the...

    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...
