I Miss My Ex

    We were best friends

    before things got serious. We were incredibly close, to the point where we'd speak everyday for most of the day. We broke up a couple of months ago, and I just feel so lonely. It's not really the fact that I'm not in the relationship, but it's more towards the fact that I don't...

    Well, it was hard to admit to myself.

    . It's been more than a year! Sometimes I pray to God to make me forget you. But I can't. Why? :( Why do you only make me feel this way...  v u l n e r a b l eEven after all the wrong things you've done to me. If I would make a list of pros and cons, I'm sure there would be...

    Sometimes.....

    Not in a romantic way or anything. I don't think we were ever meant to be lovers, but I think we were meant to be good friends, and I'm sorry that it ended in a way where that couldn't happen. I think about her quite often. I wonder how she's doing, I hope that she is happy, and...

    There are times when he is forgotten,

    almost like he never happened. I go along with my day and with my boyfriend and I am happy. And then, all it takes is one song, or one movie, or one place, and I am suddenly remembering that, yes, I AM happy. But not as happy as I was with him. I have written him letters...

    I Want To Toss Out The Trash

    You broke my heart and took me for granted. You showed me the most amazing joy and the most crippling pain. You raised me up and you knocked me down... again, and again, and again. And I let you. Heck, I *made* you. I presented my heart, no matter what you did, time and time...
