    It's still good but so complicated right now. I pray we meet. I pray I'm yours and you are mine forever one day. You are also my perfect package. Please be kind to my heart. It's real I promise, it hurts but feels good knowing you care. It hurts more now knowing how you feel. I...

    Why Was She So Special?

    I recently tried to explain to a friend about having my heart broken by my first love, about how I had thought she was the "one."  My friend asked me, "Do you think she was the one? What made her so much more special to you than other women you have dated...

    We have been apart for 4 years now,

    i'm sure she's moved on and probably doesn't think of me anymore. However, I think of her all the time. I know it's been a long time but I always have this urge to message her or facebook or something just to see how she's doing. I just want to talk to her, but the fear that she...

    I pass your house and remember the past; a

    lifetime has gone but your presence keeps me alive; knowing you still exist keeps my heart pounding; if I'm lucky I'll catch a glimpse; tears start falling attached to every moment I shared with you my beloved first love; You will be on my mind the day that I die!!

    Day's grow longer and there's no words to

    I saw him 2 weeks ago.

    It was heartbreaking. And ever since I can't help but wonder if he would've married me if I had stuck around. Which makes me question my whole life in general. Because I'm married, and I often think about how if I wouldn't have moved in with the man who is now my husband, we...

    Unfortunately.

    He was a bastard. He was full of hate. He treated me like crap. He abused me physically. He abused me emotionally. He led me on. He threatened me. He was reckless. He was a monster. He hurt my family. He made me feel ugly. He told me I was ugly. He made me suffer. He...

    and that we wouldn't have worked out, but it can still be painful. It's actually been around 9 years since we broke up, it was me who chose to, and I still feel regret. I'm married to a lovely guy, we have a good house and good relationship, etc. But I really think you can love...

    since I met you, few monthes for breaking up, chasing each other in different times, though, for years to follow. If only I was stronger to forgive you and overtake. If only I could see more the love for me, you was afraid to show. I see it now. I thought to win, I lost indeed...

    It's been 20 years since we parted ways.

    I've been married for 19 years. I spent the first 7 years of my marriage not even realizing how much I loved my husband until he came back into the picture. I guess it takes spending time with your ex to remember why he is an ex. Over the years we would run into each other...

    If it truly was your first love

    and it wasn't your last love, it is the love you miss. What happens however if after a lengthy time apart you find that other love (the first) What would you do and does it still make sense after all these years!

    I watched my first love marry someone else.

    I moved on, loved again, and built a new life with my second love. At random times, I still think about my first love, and mourn the past.

    about your first love? Give a round of applause for your second love. Your second love taught you love still exists.

    It's crazy how "first loves" work.
