Pain Of A Broken Heart


Published: December 2007

Tears of blood fall from my broken heart.
I never thought we would be apart.

When you held me, you said "forever."
Now that you're gone, I know you meant "never."

Saying you love me with that look in your eye,
And that was a cold-hearted lie.

Your tender touch, a soft kiss,
Two things about you I will miss.

As I sit here thinking about you,
My face is wet with tears past due.

I should've cried a long time ago,
But I loved you so.

I know they say love is blind,
But I had only you on my mind.

A hurt so deep it cuts like a knife,
But wounds heal and I'll go on with my life.

I am in love so deeply that I can’t breathe. We were in a long-distance relationship. After months of that being the case, he visited me and met my friends, and I introduced him to the people I knew. He stayed for a week, but I was sick. I had the flu when he was here. We talked about our long-distance relationship. He told me about what he thinks, and I thought we settled it. That’s what I thought, and he went back to the place where he belongs. I knew he was back home, but I hadn’t heard anything from him. I did send him messages but got nothing in return. I didn’t want to be clingy and all, but I was worried. Days passed, and he replied, but I knew there was still something wrong. Still I did not mind it. The weekend came, and I sent him a message, telling him that it’s okay if he wants to cut ties with me. I will understand, and as I expected, he replied, saying that he can’t do it anymore. A long-distance relationship suffocates him. I am in pain.

For the past four years I dedicated my love to a guy. I loved him dearly that not even once did I give up or stop loving him, yet now we fell apart. To have to take all the broken pieces of me and gather them together hurt me. It hurts knowing how happy he is with the girl he loves. I try to smile, but I’m crying, and I’m slowly broken. I know when we love someone we should let them be happy. Now when I see the old picture…even if it’s wishful thinking…I still silently pray to be back at that day again…just once.

I fell in love with my best friend, but one of my friends asked him if he likes me. He said even if he does he doesn’t want to lose me as a best friend, but I can’t be his friend. I feel hurt. I don’t know what to do.

Honestly, it takes time for a heart to heal. If you want to be friends with him it's gonna take time and progress. If you don't want to be friends, lose every connection you had with him. Go somewhere you can clear your mind.

Since the person you are in love with is your best friend, understand that he values you and would not want to loose you. Friendship overrules everything. Who knows what will happen tomorrow in a relationship? You might just break up. How would you deal with the loss then?

What should I do? I have a best friend. I never had a fight with her before. She started a relationship with her boyfriend about 1 year ago. I'm in the same class and same organization as her boyfriend. When meeting with my organization he always sits down next to me. He has certain conversations and jokes with me. I'm really happy whenever I talk to him. Sometimes he even takes me home. When they celebrated their first year anniversary in a cafe, suddenly my tears drops down my cheeks and I cried a lot. I realized that I falling in love with him. And now they have been in relationships for 16 months. Am I wrong to fall in love with him?

  • Reamogetse by Reamogetse
  • 2 years ago

No, you're not wrong. Love is like an uncontrollable bullet. Same as feelings. If you try to hide your love for him, yes, it will do good to your friend and the lover, but you will have no peace. It's not a problem to love. Love is something that costs nothing. Priceless and continuous.

  • M.Umer by M.Umer
  • 2 years ago

No, you are not wrong. But what can we do now? :( I'm feeling very sorry for you, dear. Don't disclose this to him. This will be the proof of your pure love. Start your new life and keep in touch with him. Stay blessed.

I have this "friend" who said he loves me when we first met. I told him I didn't love him that way, so we became friends for about two years. He made a bet to make me fall for him about 3 months ago. It worked. He was smart and charming. When I told him I was falling in love, he told me he didn't love me, not even like me.

He was fun to talk to. All this happened on the phone. And then to dispose me off more, he sent me pictures and videos with other people about how they chill and all. He and I had certain jokes and stories and games. I thought he was only like that with me, but he is like that with everyone. We rarely talk because I no longer feel good about myself after our conversations. But I like him now too much.

Hey, I don't really like to share my sadness, but I think I reached my limits to keep it in on my own. I just broke up about 3 months ago, and I wasn't over it until a month ago. I force myself and I did it. But what happened next was he came back to me about 2 weeks ago and said to me that he wanted to start it over. Can you tell me what to do? What do you think is best for both of us?

  • Eigen Kits by Eigen Kits

I think you should first know his motives. Why did he come back? If you still love him, then go, because love is about sacrificing. It is all about forgiving. We never know if the second time around is sweeter and will work.

  • Arty by Arty
  • 2 years ago

Did he make you happy? If yes, then make the move. Fighting is a part of being in love, believe me. He was thinking as much as you were. He came back to show you that he needs you in his path. Love is forever.

This is a beautiful but true poem. It made me cry. I am going through problems with my life long partner and we have a condo together, but whenever he gets mad he tells me to get out we've been together going on 20years in August, and I was going to leave him. I love everyone, but sometimes I feel he doesn't love me.

  • Alejandro Netro by Alejandro Netro

Love. What is it? It's a word, but a word that can start wars or create life. It's a word that is often taken for granted. We often use the word love but not actually know the meaning of it....well love is...when? know what? Love is different for everyone! Love means different things to different people. For me personally, love is knowing that I know someone cares about me dearly; to someone else love could mean finding a girlfriend/boyfriend, or getting a hello from a friend, maybe it's just as simple as looking someone directly in the eyes. We never know what love is because we've never experienced love the same way. I don't have much to say about this except for...I know how it feels to have your heart broken and stepped on but c'est la vie! That's life! The reason we need our hearts broken is so they will grow back stronger, much like the muscles on our arms. The only way to train it is to tear it then let it grow back stronger and more prepared for other problems.

  • Ladyfair by Ladyfair

Well said. We all have different definitions of love, but I think it is also when you trust that person fully and even through the fights you say you are willing to make this work. It is not in finding a perfect person but finding someone who makes you happy, even when you're too mad at them but still say I love this person. No one is perfect, but love covers it all. I've been hurt more than once, but I still believe in love.

Hey, I'm not really used to sharing my hurts, but it hurts so bad I have to voice it. I fell in love with this girl, and we have been dating for the past 5 month. I really love her. Every month we celebrate our anniversary. I got her a promise neck chain on our first month anniversary. She broke up with me when she realized she was pregnant. I was really hurt because I loved her still and wanted the baby, but she demanded an abortion. After the abortion, we got back together and just 3 days after our 6th anniversary she threw the promise chain I got for her and told me to go to hell, for all she cares, and that she's no longer interested in me. I really don't know what to do. Do I call her and try to make things work out again? This is the 3rd time she's breaking up with me, and I really love her...

Be you. Be the best you, and people are going to love you for that. I found out how painful it is to love someone because at the end of one day they broke up with me for no reason. It was the worst. It's better to love yourself. Thank you.

Women can be an evil being. I would let it go and move on, eventually. I'm 33, so I know it's hard. I've had problems with listening to my heart and not my head my whole life. It got easier for me when I lost my mom in 2011. That was the greatest heart break of all. It may not seem like it, but it will get better. You just have to force yourself to let go. Love can be the most addictive drug on earth, with the same withdrawals as heroin. Just fight through it, my friend.

  • Alexandra Longden by Alexandra Longden
  • 3 years ago

If she's broken up with you 3 times, maybe that's a sign that it is not meant to be. You deserve better. Moving on may be hard, but the right woman is out there for you somewhere. All it requires is a little faith and patience. :)

Hey Ted.
You are hanging on to someone that doesn't want to stay. I mean, I know you think that maybe your relationship just hit a bump, but I think you just smashed into a mountain. Now I also know you need closure, so try and talk to her. See why she is not interested anymore. It's pretty common for someone to fall out of love. I am not implying it's less painful, but I'm sure you are strong enough to let go and move on. Good luck, Ted.

  • Alyssa by Alyssa

I want you to know
That it's hard for me to go.
I don't want us to be like this.

Now she's making you smile,
And my heart seems to die.
Oh please don't leave me like this.

I just want to know,
Is our chance so low?
I just can't seem to let you go.

This love is too much.
I don't even know the catch.
You just leave me like a scratch.

I know exactly how it feels! I recently broke up with somebody I love since I knew our relationship would not work out anyway. It's the hardest thing to do, walking away from someone who makes you happy. I will always wish him the best of everything in life. But I know the hurt will get better in time. Just like when I lost my mom 3 years ago...that really was hard.

Hi, I'm 18 and I've been with my boyfriend for 17 months now. Early this year I was raped and I got pregnant and aborted it. He stood by me every step of the way. But recently, he's been really distant from me. He's always busy. He never comes to visit anymore. I'm so scared. I don't want him to walk away, but what would he possibly want from someone as broken as I am?

Life goes on, so you have to move on. You're still young. I hope you find a better lover that will be with you. Even if you get pregnant, he's gonna tell you to keep it.

You don't have to force him to stay. Maybe he is having a rough time emotionally, but if he was brave enough to stay with you before, then he will be there. Give him some time. Everything will be fine.

I'm not that old, but I had a boyfriend who was so sweet, and he told me he loved me, and I believed him. One weekend he hung out with an old friend to catch up. He broke up me after that day. I didnt know why it hurt so bad. Then I got on my friend's phone and I find out that he had slept with his friend and wanted her and not me. I love him and miss him so much. Today we went behind the stairs and we were hugging and crying and we kissed, but I want the pain to end. I'm tired of crying my eyes out. I'm tired of not sleeping. I'm tired of not eating. I just want this to end.

Love sometimes leaves a heart broken, just like a wound. Sometimes it only takes time to heal. I hope the time comes that your wound totally stops hurting.

I'm 11 months in a relationship with a boy. I'm 20 years old, he is 28. After almost 1 month of our relationship, I found out that he has 2 children and was going home with the mother of his children every time he had rest days in work. I was angry at that time, but I gave him another chance. He said that he is just going home, not for her but for their children. They’re not married.

After 7 months passed, I introduced him to my family. We didn’t tell them that he has children. We were okay and my mother liked him so much until my brother found a message in his inbox from the mother of my boyfriend's children. Many painful words were said about me. He says that my boyfriend has a wife and family and I destroyed it ... My mother was very angry and commanded me to break up with him.

I was in a relationship with a girl for almost 15 months. Every month we used to celebrate monthly anniversaries. But then my friend got in a bad accident, and my ex started to visit him. She used to watch movies there. Then she said, "I'm not happy with you. Nothing is left in this relationship." And she walked away. I'm left with emptiness and heart broken pieces.

  • Irica Gray by Irica Gray

I gave my everything to her. I made a mistake and did everything and my very best to bring us back to what we used to be or at least close to that. I thought we were getting there. We were so happy until one night she decided to give up on me because she got tired of me. I really thought that love conquers all, but I'm wrong. She's the only person I expected to stay around through my ups and downs, but now she left me, and I'm left here all alone, and I don't even know what to do anymore. She's my everything; she was my light and dark and now I'm so lost..

It is very sad that the people we love do not realize how much we love them. Yet we try our very best to make them happy and we end up hurting ourselves in a way that chances of full recovery are very tiny even after we have moved on with our lives. They make us regret in a way that our hearts are covered in pain and insecurities. Even after we have found the ones willing to give us true and pure love, we are too scared to love and we end up hurting them, then the cycle never stops.

That's the truth about life, bro. Sometimes, no matter how hard you try, you would still mean nothing to someone who means everything to you. The antidote? Have no expectations! Then you'll have no disappointments!

  • Chris by Chris

True love is never gone. It lives in your mind until your last breath, even though you may have sealed it up and put it away. - Moved on to another. Instead of feeling sad, feel grateful that you once had that incredible connection. Many never experience it-the high of a romantic love. What's meant to be together will be together. If not, remember the great times, but focus on the wonderful experiences life has to offer in the future. You have to face facts. It didn't work because it takes two people who want to be together. It didn't work because at least one person didn't want it to. Yet the fantastic memories will remain.

  • Mothel by Mothel
  • 3 years ago

Yes, true love never ends. No matter what happens in our life, it still lives inside. People say they moved on, but no matter what there is always an immortal pain deep inside. It can be felt no matter how much they try to convince and believe that they have moved on. To deny this is just that they are denying to believe that they once had a true love.

I dated a guy for a year and a half. I loved him like my life depended on it. Then things changed when he had to go to basic. I'm speaking on a broken heart. He decided to get drunk one night and then cheated on me then broke up with me through a text. I called him begging him to stay but he kept hanging up. And then he told his uncle to tell me to leave him alone. To me that made me think he was less of a man. And more like a boy. And as I stood there crying like a idiot, not able to breathe, he just laughed. The man who stood before me wanted to appear bad to his friends. And the sad thing is, I still wanted him. Even though he cheated. Even though he was horrible. That's love. But he didn't love me. And that's when I became the broken girl who thought of herself unlovable. But what I didn't see was the love I had from other people and made me realize I wasn't unlovable.

This guy liked me in 2013 and I didn't like him at all then. Around May of 2014 we started talking again and then I gained feelings for him. We carried on liking each other and then he asked me out in November. In February 2015 we broke up. Officially, we only lasted for 3 months. It's been 7 months and we still talk like nothing happened, we even joke about our relationship. I don't know if I've moved on. I still get jealous, miss him and all that. But I also know that we're never going to work out. It still bothers me.

It's not enough that you love him or someone...sometimes, it's not enough to make him stay...he needs things that you can't give..he wants something that you can never share with him, that's why he broke up..that's the saddest part of loving...

  • Meera by Meera

Touching one...I am having the same problem. Now we are apart and he is getting married with the girl of his parents choice. I am the one who is suffering a lot and can't get over this pain. It's not that easy to forget such a beautiful moment of my life. Though he broke my heart into pieces, I still love him with those broken pieces. Love is crazy.

"You could rip my heart out of my chest, throw if on the ground and stomp on it right in front of me, and I'd let you... The worse part is, I'd pick it up and hand it right back to you."
The hurt he's put me through for a year and when I finally get him for awhile, he just says "we should be friends."
That cut me deep, but the messed up thing is I'd still get back together with him.
Worse part is, he doesn't even seem to miss me.

Well I'm with that kind of guy right now an don't know what to do. I love him so much. We've been together for almost 9 years but last few times he has gotten drunk he says those kind of things to me and gets mean buts sobers up an acts normal. Doesn't even bring it up next day some of the time. Now he is drinking a lot more not coming and for like two nights saying he is at his land with his son which they are ALWAYS at and never answers text when he leaves. Says it's none my business what he does I'm not his mom. He use to be sweet to me. We were so in love. A girl has crush on him down road from his land too. Works at convenient store where he gets beer sometimes but I trust him SO FAR!! Any advice? I feel lost broken and scared of everything n my life. :(

  • 3 years ago

Nancy... I am so sorry this is happening to your beautiful heart. Nine years and you still love bigger than you love yourself. Through nine years one has the time to see and feel the other's flaws and you, your love has surpassed it all. You are your very own person, and this I can tell from the very fact that the love you feel for him goes without the support of his. He makes you feel and will still make you feel things. He was put onto your path for these very reasons, but now he is hurting you more than he gives you love, and no one should do something other than provide love and strength within your life. You are strong, so very strong. Strong isn't even relevant here, meaning you don't have to be. You have to allow yourself to stop being strong and let the right man be it for you. Don't you feel tired, at a loss and in deep need for affection and care? See, that it is only because you are putting so much strength where you should not.

  • Madi by Madi
  • 4 years ago

You should break up with him or tell him to get his act together because you care for him and he doesn't care back - that's his loss. So, break up with him or give him a warning because trust me you won't regret that. A guy like that can just use you for doing his laundry and cooking his food. I mean think like a guy, he's probably thinking "why would you stay with the same person when you can go out and have fun and let the other person never find out." And if needed seek help. Because this kind of stuff can sometimes turn dangerous, hope this helps.

This is really a heat touching one.
I loved a girl in my college for three years and I still love her, during the three years we were good friends, I loved her but she was telling I like you so much, we never dated each other during the three years but at the last days of my college we dated each other and for one week we were always together, it was really nice, I can't never forget it.
We were so happy together and life was so nice and peaceful for us at those moments, but I had to leave her country because I graduated, after I left we were in touch for almost one month through phone and wechat but it didn't last more than that....she left me and forgot me and think like I have died.
I still really love her and can't forget her, she is always in my mind but I don't know anything about her. She changed her number but I hope she is alright. :(

The same I felt that time when she left me behind. She was my first girlfriend and I adored her. She also loved me very much even once she cried for me when I said I would give up. 7 months ago we separated and still I miss her very much. Still I can't accept that we gave up. I meet many girls everyday but still she never gets out of my mind. Sometimes I feel that it is better to die if I would to live without her lifelong.. I love you angel. Please come back to me.
I truly love you and I miss you very much.
I'm dying here without you.. Please heal me...

My boyfriend and I love each other so much, he promised me that he won't hurt me, we will be together forever, he will never ever leave me but he lied, after all he lied to me, he proposed to me and we are going to get married this year, but he called me last month that he can't marry me because he is not ready yet. I feel like dying, my heart was bleeding when he says he cannot. I loved him with all my heart and I still love him very much. I don't want to move on, he is my second love and I don't want to get over on him. I love him so much and I want him to come back.

He says he loves me but doesn't show it. He realizes he wants to be with me when I stop talking to him after our arguments. He is very sweet and all I want but makes me feel insecure as he has lied to me before. I'm confused I don't know what to do. Should I leave him?

I've been trying so hard to be with someone who does not even know how much I love her . Everytime I get so hurt just to make her smile and happy but she doesn't care . I know that the fault is mine because loving someone too much always brings loneliness.

  • Hunter by Hunter, Melbourne
  • 6 years ago

I had a girl that I felt in love with at first sight. It took me over six months to get with her. After getting together things went so good that I forgot the word pain in my life. It was just perfect. Everyone that so us together they always commented what a lovely couple we were. Then she asked me for a ring. By that time I had no job or any type of income coming in. I struggled a lot to get the ring. The finally I proposed her on her birthday. Never thought that's the day the darkness would take over in our relationship. Few days letter she asked me to leave or else she would call the cops on me, she took the ring and chucked it at me. Since that day my heart is full of pain and hate. I would never want to hear the word love in my life again. It was all fake all along. Can not believe that I could not realize earlier. I did so much for her family and her but she never appreciated any thing I did for her. She never travelled before but I did my best to take her places. I tried my best to keep that smile on her face but at the end that's what I got.

I loved this girl from the bottom of my heart. If I did have a way to talk to her I would find a way. I told this girl I loved her every single day. If I could take one thing back from our relationship it would be the day she lied to me and went to my best friend. This girl was all of me I would go out and buy her thing that I wouldn't think about buying any other girl. She was my first love. Everytime we kissed I felt like I was kissing an angel sent to me from god. It hurt to even think about her because all I can think about is the times we had. I was the girl in my future being my wife and having my kids. But now all of that is gone.

I had a crush on a guy, I loved him so much that I always ask him for a kiss. We kissed for several times and I told him that I love him and he said he has a girlfriend.. I became weak in spirit couldn't do anything always thinking about him. I still love him dearly.

I was in love with my angel, but she broke my heart 6 months ago. My love was true, but I can't understand the problem. I was shocked when she told me she couldn't love me. It was a long relationship...about 7 years. That was my first and last angel in my life. I love you in every step. My love broke my heart.

It's the story of me and my best friend, and we are no longer best friends anymore. I proposed her when she was in relationship, still she is. Not because of I want her just because of I just wanted to tell my feelings about her, and after she told me that we will be friends, but now I'm nothing for her. I'm not in contact with her but I still love her. And If she is happy with her boyfriend then I'm also happy. But I'll wait for her. The day I stop loving her is the day I close my eyes forever.

This is how he hurts me so much too.. Cannot forget about him, even if we'd broke up 2 mounts ago. But until now, still thinking about his condition.. I loved that boy so much.. Before we broke up he send me a message saying "I love you, forever until the end I'll always love you.." I know I only broke up with him because of my Parents decisions.. They made me broke my heart and broke his heart too.. Just like the poem said I always cry every night.. Hope he is always happy because I never want to see him being sad.. But I will always love him.. because his my first boyfriend.. And he will be the first person who will live inside my heart..

Everything begins so sweet, and ends so tragic, especially when it comes to love someone. I love some girl. We had a great time together though it's very short period. At the very end, she told me that I couldn't make herself love me. WHAT a pain, just like a knife cut my heart piece by piece, flash by flash. Now we became intimate strangers. I have to go on with my life. But I am sure one thing, Love is both sweet and painful.

This poem is what exactly I am feeling now. I fell in love with her once I met on a blind date. After a couple of dates, I completely lost my heart in her arms. She was neither very beautiful, nor very attractive for others, but for me, she was so pure and sweet. I was confident that I will be her boyfriend. Unexpectedly, golden times only lasted for a month and I sat in front her heart-gate waiting for a love which never comes as she said. She tired to love me, but it still did not work out and left me with a sweet memory which makes me feel pain whenever I recall. Anyway, I never regret loving her!

I met a guy I truly loved him we were together for 6 years we had a daughter, who is already 3 years old. He played me he fooled me lied to me, say he loves me. He cheated because I loved him too much I couldn't let him go. I always thought my life will never be complete without him he meant everything to me but at the end he couldn't love me anymore. He changed. He was the worse guy in cheating he finally told me if I can't stand him cheating then I must leave him. I will still follow him one evening I went to him when I got there he was with his girlfriend. He hit me and asked me what do you want stay away from me I don't love you anymore. My heart was sore but I could easily walk away.

May I take this opportunity to share my pain, it's been almost 3 months. I had the most amazing girlfriend or so I thought, happy as could be, yes there was little arguments here and there but what couple is perfect? We have been dating for 3 years, I met her when she was 16 and I was 19, on 2nd March 2013 3 days before our anniversary, she called me up to come to her, how excited I was, got there were she broke it off, left me for her friend's brother, I was broken, never felt such pain before, with time it got a little better, eventually I started hanging out more, doing new hobbies, but I still miss her, when I'm not busy the thought crosses my mind of her, couple of days ago I received an sms saying "I miss you" I didn't even reply coz it made me devastated, the pain is still there, I never thought loving someone so much was so hard, living without them.

I was in love with my wife, I did everything that I could ever do in my life for her, but she didn't love me because I look like her dad, and she hate him! She left me, it broke my heart to the way I can't say it by words, that was before 5 years, I did my best to forget her, but I couldn't, I realized in this life the only thing that never die is love, so I'll keep it in my heart for ever ...

  • Zerina by Zerina
  • 6 years ago name is Zerina. I come from Bosnia. This is beautiful poem. Like other, it make me cry too. This is my story. I broke up with my boyfriend, one week ago. I loved, and I still love him with all my soul. He said to me I'll always love you, and I will never cheat on you. Love is blind, my mother said to me. Be careful, all men are the same. My love was so deep, so true...and still it is. I saw his fb, and other sites...he was talking with other girls. This pain tears me to pieces, and in every one of his heart remains. At the same time, I've died and revived. Now what I can...Worlds are dying around me, in the noise with other characters who become Zephyr...everything died in me. I have only this pain and longing for him.

He never actually said I love you, but I felt he said it with all his kisses. One day in front of me he stared talking about his girlfriend, someone that wasn't me. It hurt so much I wanted to die...........

I got married on Feb. 21, 2001. It was a wonderful feeling at the beginning of the relationship. Things took a turn after two years of being married to him. He cheated on with someone that I thought was a friend of eleven years.
It wasn't fun at all finding this out. I was the bread winner of the family. I couldn't work after knowing that he would do such a thing to me. And I do not blame him alone I blame the both of them. On top of that I was three months pregnant. I called my brother to come and get me and he was there. I'm now raising my son alone with Jesus Christ. So to those that have been hurt give it to God and I promise you he will be there for you through your darkest hour.

That poem... It almost made me cry... There's a person I had a deep crush on, he was always flirting with me. We were never dating, but still, I felt like I was in heaven when he asked me to be his girlfriend. But, I was always just rejecting him, and that felt horrible. Now, I feel terrible when I realized that he has been seriously flirting with every pretty girl he sees... I hate him, but I also can't help it, I'm still madly in love with him..

When you walked away it cut me through like a knife. you told me you care, yet you had the guts to cheat on her with me. One thing I'll never do is to be the girl who's used to cheat on cause I don't want that to be done on me. You lied, you looked straight into my eyes and told me it was over between the two of you, I trusted you, but never again. Pretty dimples fake smiles, I loved you, opened my heart welcomed you into my life yet you had the guts to strip me, or rather strip it all out of me, now I've got all the symptoms of a girl with a broken heart, but no matter what you'll never see me cry.

I met this guy over Facebook and started texting him. He knew I liked him and lead me on into thinking he liked me and so I fell for him harder and harder everyday. I asked him to meet me or face chat but he always had something's come up. I went on Facebook and he was doing the same to 5 other girls! And I told him a lot of things that I usually wouldn't tell people. And so I got the courage to tell him that I really like him and he says he's in another relationship and doesn't think we should even be friends. That killed me. Saying you love me with that look in your eye
And that was a cold hearted lie.

That's a really sad poem, brought me to tears as I'm also going through a rough patch. A man I have never loved so much tore my heart apart, I never thought we would ever be apart but we did and it kills me every single day, he got his ex gf pregnant and now they are back together and have a son...the pain I'm feeling is indescribable. Loving someone who loves another is painful

Me and my boyfriend were quite complicated because he was dating my best friend for four years. They never did anything but he broke up with her because he figured out she was only dating him for the publicity she got but then he asked me out and I said yes cuz I had always liked him. We had kissed and junk but then he said he didn't want to date me anymore because he never even liked me! I see him everyday and it just kills me to look at him with that perfect smile I just can't live without him

This is exactly how I feel at the moment me and my boyfriend are going through a really bad time, we are fighting like there's no tomorrow and his lying, treating me bad and constantly making me cry. I cant even hear myself think when I'm at school all I think about is him and if we will get sorted because I love him. It's so hard for me because he is 3 years older and I'm scared I will lose him, he always holds me in his arms saying he loves me and says we will be together forever but there's an end in boyfriend. :/

At the beginning of this year my boyfriend died. No one knows what I'm feeling. I'm feeling guilty for his death and everything else but I don't want to move on. My mind is telling me to get over it but my heart is telling me to never get over him. A few weeks ago I was given a letter and he had said I love you but if I do anything rash you have to promise me not to feel guilty and everytime I look at a picture of him it brings me to tears. It just hurts so much.

I've been hurt so much. I know I loved him. I still love him. I know I shouldn't because he did me so wrong. But I'm easy to forgive, even after he lied, cheated, and lied some more...I still loved him, his problem was he didn't trust and couldn't understand how I could love him after all that so we just fell apart....

I love this poem, it makes me think about a boy that I fell in love with when I was only 14, but the whole time he said he loved me, he turned around and said it to someone else. He played me. I was so in love I wanted to hurt myself when he told me he didn't want me anymore. I couldn't talk for about a month, and my parents didn't know I was so hurt because I can't tell them.

This poem has deeply touched me. He was my second love after I had lost the first one who was also playing me. The second was loving. He did everything the first one did not. He would call me. Told me I was beautiful everytime we met. He loved me I thought. I didn't know it was the end of it when he called and asked to meet at our usual place. Full of joy I rushed to our spot. There he was as handsome as always waiting for me. Then it all came out. He was sorry, he could not do it anymore. He did not love me. He never had. He did not care about me at all. All that he had ever said to me was a lie. He was sorry. He left me like that with those words I walked back to the house. I was sorry for myself, again. I shall never ever in my life allow a man again. Single shall I wait upon my lord.
A hurt so deep it cuts like a knife
But wounds heal and I'll go on with my life
