    Unrequited

    We can't choose who we love. It happens. Love is something I keep close,hoping and waiting, but when it is one sided, it's painful. I loved her, let me correct that, I love her. She doesn't love me. Never has. Not once did she ever say it. I did and often. Each time the words...

    One Day I'll Wake Up And Know That The Worst Is Over

    Loving her took me to extreme highs and lows. We started out as friends and in the long run something deeper than friendship emerged. I was not expecting that.. to fall for someone like her. My feelings for her went crazy more and more each day. I was trying so hard to ignore and...

    With Or Without You

    I was doing fine until a received a voicemail from him a few days ago. You would think after deleting someone from your facebook that they would leave you alone. You would also think the fact that you haven't emailed or called them in months would also hinder them from making any...

    Stitches...

    I know this boy who stole my heart broke it into pieces and then stitched it back together, only to break it all over again and again and again, he must be running out of thread by now.

    Depressed.

    I have absolutely no self confidence, but today I had finally told my crush that I liked him. Turns out he didn't like me back. The messed up thing was that he acted like he did. He would tell me that he felt nervous around me and that I made him feel something that he hasn't...

    I've Fallen In Love With My Guitar Teacher

    It's quite scary to say this, but I have fallen in love with my guitar teacher. I'm 13 years old and don't say this is just a crush because I know it's not. I know the difference. Otherwise I wouldn't say I was in love with him. Anyway, I see him every week 1-to-1 lessons and it...

    Not the right guy

    I never thought I have loved someone that can't love me back. Runs back 5 months from now, I met this guy during our sports fest and he is looking good, tall, and a basketball player and at the same time a football player. I always see him on the field playing ball games and I...

    It Hurts!

    Rejection is a hurtful emotion and state to find yourself in. Rejection from someone you love and care about, who makes thoughtless states and responds to your frustration from trying so hard to make them see how much you care. It hurts! It's the simplest words to describe...

    Never Understood Why

    I really don't know where to start but here it goes. In 2003 a girl I had dated about 10 years earlier called me out of the blue and she wanted to get together. Her marrage had failed and she wanted to talk. When we dated earlier I didn't realize how much I really cared about her...

    It's Best To Keep Loving Them

    Modern psychologists would tell you to stop loving someone when they don't love you back. And this kinda works for some people. But, it is not the best path.  The best path is to always keep loving someone once you have started loving them, no matter what happens.  No matter...

    They were my best friend

    for years. We knew everything about each other. I was the first person they came out to. I loved them with all of my being, with more than what I am. I didn't tell them I was in love--it was a difficult time for them. And then, Jesus almost four months ago, they dropped off the...

    I don't know if I should still love them

    or not. "Them" was my best friend who got me through a majorly bad time in my life, and I was at the edge of committing suicide. She was just one of those things and I loved her. And I would think about her every day and talk to her and text her and try to get in touch with her...

    Hollywood Got It Wrong Again

    You know how in films the guy and the girl always get together at the end? Doesn't happen in real life. Most love is unrequited, and it sucks. If you're really lucky you may eventually find someone who feels the same way as you.

     I have loved you with ALL my heart and soul and all you have done is sh*t on me.  I want no more of this crap.  I deserve better than what you gave.  I deserve better than what you think I earned.  I will be loved for who I am, or I won't be loved at all.   Today, I stop...

    Hahaha it's been so long

    since I've felt like this. It was over over a year ago and sometime during and after it I was self-medicating. Days like this remind me why I started. Just something to keep me from being overly emotional. I've been blubbering like a freaking baby for hours.
