    Lost Love

    What I said: "I love you.  I really do.  But, I think since we were best friends for so long, that is what it still is.  I don't want to hurt you, but we are going our separate ways anyway.  You are so wonderful and I know you will meet someone who will really be "in love...

    I Need to Learn to Speak Up

    Why can't I tell people when what they are doing is hurting me? Why am I so shy that I cannot say those words? But by the time I am able to say them it is too late? Dammit, why can't I just say it?

    Dear Brother,

    I thought you were fully responsible for all what has happened to me. The years of unwanted abuse, the moments of fear and shame that I wish I could never have given you the power to have. But I looked up to you. I loved you. I still do. All I ever wanted to for you to accept me...

    Time To Nut Up Or Shut Up

    For about a year now I have had a crush in this girl. She's really pretty and funny, not the smartest thing in the world but **** that. Any way, I have kept quiet for the last 9 months, I have had several chances to tell her how I feel but I have been to much of a p**** to do it...

    The First One

    There is so much that I think we left unsaid, so much that I wish I had said to you. I was always so afraid of being clingy that I never asked you anything. I prattled on about me and my childhood and I never even knew what your average day was like. When did you wake up? Where...

    Missed Opportunities

    I’ve let so many opportunities pass me by all because I’m shy and generally need a great deal of time to begin to be comfortable in a new situation with new people. My reclusive and anti-social nature has always worked against me in so many aspects of my life. I just don’t...

    Just Say It

    I liked him for three years without faltering. His voice sent chills down my spine and his smile warmed my heart. I loved him but I felt it was wrong to love him so I didn't say a word. He lived not too far from me and we attended the same church functions all the time but I...

    I should have told you that I loved you before six years ago today.  I should have thrown my arms around you and solved the conspiracy that was playing in your head.  Your schizophrenic delusions were too much for me to understand. It's too late now, but I hope you...

    Back then I never knew what I wanted. You asked me several times and I failed to answer. I bet you thought I was uninterested. I should have told you how much I wanted you, how loyal I would be to you, that my ultimate goal was to visit you and be your little pet. It's...

    Instead of begging for your affections, pleading with you not to leave me, I should have said, " You're a lying, cheating, bastard."" I hate you for never being there."" I hate you for using me." " You never really loved me." " I was just a tool to make you feel better about...
