    I must be crazy now Maybe I dream too much But

    when I think of you I long to feel your touch To whisper in your ear Words that are old as time Words only you would hear If only you were mine I wish I could go back to the very first day I saw you Should've made my move when you looked in my eyes 'cause by now I...

    How much is too much?

    How long can you keep feeling unappreciated and disrespected until you just don't or CAN'T care anymore? I'm always drawn back to the quote that I seem I can relate more and more to lately. "Never push a loyal person to the point where they no longer care." Even though I...

    Valentine's Day a cruel holiday

    for the unhappily married. You must look through the cards full of love and sentiment. Reading words meant for someone's great love but not my own. I wonder where to find a card which expresses the crushed dreams of a marriage to an alcoholic? I am not a woman who has ever...

    If people don't make an effort to be in your

    life, don't try to be in theirs; it's not worth it.

    Hate when you give your heart to the one person

    who you believed to be your dream partner, best friend, soul mate but along the journey you start to notice the lack of appreciation and affection which makes you unhappy. No matter how many times your actions remind them how important they are in your life, they don't seem to...

    After a breakup, there is a great feeling of

    loneliness that overcomes us. For so long, we felt that we were a part of something bigger than ourselves. Suddenly we are left with the realization that we no longer have another to lean on. The loneliness is overwhelming. We have become used to having someone with us all the...

    My wife and son went to see Paddington last

    night. Midway through the movie I looked over at both of them and felt a surge of love for them. It's moments like that remind me why I'm alive.

    Something is missing in my marriage.

    I love my husband more then anyone in this world. He has been my rock the past 9 years we have been together, but something is just not there. He doesn't listen to me. I've told him how important it is for me to get a card on my birthday or anniversary. My birthday just passed...

    I just got out of a relationship

    and I guess I cared too much and got hurt. After we broke up I went back to being depressed and unhappy. I depended a lot on her and when we broke up i broke down. I'm at a low point and I know killing myself isn't the answer and over this reason is stupid but it's to hard to...

    As much as I love my girlfriend,

    last night I've come to the painful realization that it's best I end it. We didn't argue or fight about anything, I just think that she's so broken from past relationships that she doesn't feel the need to truly make an effort to keep me. No matter how much I sympathize or...

    My boyfriend of 17 months just said

    that he needs space. It's been months since we've been on and off and it wasn't easy. I know that he wants to focus in his career and in getting better but I don't think it's unreasonable for him to do that move. He said I was suffocating him, but I'm not even doing anything, in...

    Did you ever think that it is possible to sleep

    with someone without having a physical relation? Just laying there, talking for hours about how we feel, what we love, memories etc. Just enjoying to be with someone.

    Ever since September I've had a crush on my

    I have been very lucky in this life of mine.

    Or is that even true? My world always appears so full of light. The outer rims of my soul like burning torches of fire in the night. People around me smile. I feel warmth exude from their now healthy spirit. It happens to me everyday. My heart shouts out with joyful glee that...

    After so many years of devoting myself to one
