"I didn't lose him; I let him go. I didn't get over him; I moved on. When you truly love someone you never lose them or get over them, they will always mean something to you, so no matter how hard you try if it was true love, you'll never forget them."
I miss the way you told me you really loved me, but that's what happens when a couple breaks up; the love fades, and you have to get used to not hearing 'I miss you', or 'I love you' anymore. And, the rest of your days are spent on trying to let go, or trying to move on. Or, convicing that still hopeful heart of yours that there isn't a chance left in the world that you'll both end up being together again. Then you have to face the heartache that's comes with the thought of your love being with someone else and realize your chances of ever being with them again are getting more and more thinner each day
"When you hold me like this, so many memories fill my eyes. The first time we kissed, the times we nearly said good-bye. But still here we are, tested and tried and still true... And stronger than we ever knew."
I used to think you were the world, now I know you're just another ignorant ass living in it
The hardest part of being in a relationship is having the feeling that the guy you love more than life itself doesn't care about you as much as you thought. You sit up every night and cry, worrying that it won't last much longer. Yet, you're doing everything you can to hold on to what you have and it doesn't seem to be enough
There are too many inexplicable things around us - horrors, threats, mysteries that draw you in and then inevitably disenchant you. Back to the predictable and humdrum. The prince is never going to come, and maybe Sleeping Beauty's dead
"Here you come again; just when I'm about to make it work without you, you look into my eyes and lie those pretty lies, and pretty soon I'm wondering how I came to doubt you."
I now understand it was just my ego... because looking back, I don't think I really loved him... but I cried when I realized he didn't love me
"I forgot about you for a while, but then I saw you again in my mind, just instantly flashed back to the time when I thought that we were happy; I know I'll never hold you like that again."

"And all I really want to say is you're the reason I want to stay."

The higher you build the walls around your heart, the harder you fall when someone finally tears them down
She believed in dreams all right, but she also believed in doing something about them. When Prince Charming didn't come along, she went over to the palace and got him
The hardest mile I've ever walked was the one away from you
Our parents fill our heads with Cinderella, Prince Charming, Big weddings, and white horses, but then we get our heart broken for the first time, and it hurts, and that multiplies to many heartbreaks, which shows us that there is a little more to love and life than fairy tales and handed down dreams
Give me a kiss. Give me your world. Give me your heart, and I'll be your girl. Give me a smile. Give me your time. Give me your love, and I'll give you mine
Maybe if I look away it won't hurt as much... maybe if I don't watch you with her it won't tear my heart apart... maybe if I don't remember how you held me ever so close, just as you are now holding her... my heart wouldn't be breaking... maybe if you were still holding me I wouldn't feel the the small salt water paths on my face... maybe if you had meant it when you said forever... I wouldn't be here drowning in my own tears... wishing that I didn't have to look away from you... with her
As I draw you near for one final goodbye I know your thinking of her... as I kiss your cheek and try not to cry knowing your heart is with her... as I look over your face one final time, and utter my final farewell I know you can't wait to turn around and run into her arms... when did it turn from me to her? When did you decide she had what you wanted rather than me? When did you want her... and forget me? When was the moment that you took my heart out of your pocket and threw it to the ground? Please just tell me... when it hit... did you make a sound?
How do you expect me to move on, to let you go, when I see you everyday and talk to you constantly? We can't be together, I know that, so I want you out of my life, completely. I can't be friends with you because seeing your face and hearing your voice just makes me think about how much I love you, and then about how I can't be with you. This is the easiest way for me, to let go of something, I have to let go of it completely, even if it means we can't be friends
Sometimes you meet someone and before you know their name, where they're from... you know that sometime in the future... this person is going to mean something to you
I think letting you go was the smartest decision I ever made. Even though I loved you so much, I just couldn't deal with the pain. And, the times we spent together, holding each other, were the best times of my life. But no matter how much I wanted to keep you in my arms, I couldn't. I couldn't hold on to you, knowing that all you were going to do was hurt me. But right now, even though I still love you, I don't need you anymore. I don't need you to complete me. I just need you to comfort me when I'm sad, support me, and listen to me when I talk. So, I guess what I'm saying is, I'm glad we're over. I'm glad I've let go
I can cry a million tears, but you'll never see my frown. I'll whisper your name one thousand times, but you'll never hear a sound. Tears down my cheek. Sobs in my throat. You will never feel my pain. I'll love you forever with all my heart I'm sure you'll never feel the same
Even though I've 'stopped liking you,' every time someone mentions your name my head turns right toward them. It's like every time I hear it, I think of all that we could have had, and all that could have happened that didn't
I am sitting here pouring my heart out to you and what I get in return is a confused face
It's hard to lose someone you love, so please forgive me for trying to hold on
Suicide is not chosen; it happens when pain exceeds resources for coping with pain
Your eyes are undescribable... they are just the type you wanna look into and try to find something, but you can't, so you just keep looking, 'cause they're so great. Some people say you can see the soul through the eyes, but... I see you... and it's even better
See, some guys are like drugs, 'cause drugs are addictive, and they cause you harm. And see... some guys cause harm to you and hurt you badly, but us girls keep goin back to them, we keep going back for more pain and more heartache cause we're addicted. We're addicted to what could be different this time, even though we know it won't be. Drugs can kill you physically... but see the kind of drug a boy is can kill you emotionally
Why is it that girls fall in love, we cry, we hurt, and it feels like we got kicked right in the stomach when he says good-bye. But when we say good-bye all of that happens to us again because all he's doing is walking away, free, and not caring at all
I guess you get used to somebody, you kind of like havin' them around. I guess you get used to the way they make you happy, bring you up when you're feeling down. I never dreamed when I was letting you go that I would wake up and miss you this much. I guess you get used to somebody. I guess you get used to bein' loved
Breaking up with your boyfriend is a million times easier than breaking up with your best friend
"Give me your hand. I may not lead you into forever, but I will lead you into now, and sometimes, if you are lucky, now, is the first step, into forever."
~William F. Payne
The reason I can't get myself into relationship, no matter how hard i try, no matter how bad I want to, I'm scared. I'm not scared of getting hurt... I'm scared of hurting someone else
Before I met you, I was always considered the strong one, the one who never got hurt; I could do anything and never fall. I felt like I was the epitome of invincibility; of confidence. Now, you've come along, you've broken my heart, and you've shaken me from that really strong foundation that I had spent years constructing. I found out more about myself than I ever had before. I found that my foundation wasn't as strong as I thought it was - I found that love isn't all it's cracked up to be - and I found that this time, maybe I won't be able to get back up quite so easily
It's just about now, when the tears start to fall, I wonder if I'm gonna make it at all... this is not about trying to go back in time, this is not about where I'll be a year down the line, it's just moment to moment, surviving somehow... this is not about then... this is just about now
"Bottom line is, even if you see them coming, you're not ready for the big moments. No one asks for their life to change, not really. But it does. So, what are we, helpless? Puppets? Nah. The big moments are gonna come, you can't help that. It's what you do afterwards that counts. That's when you find out who you are."
~Buffy the Vampire Slayer
"Sometimes we don't see certain things until we're ready to see them in a certain way."

Your biggest challenge isn't someone else. It's the ache in your lungs and the burning in your legs, and the voice inside you that yells 'CAN'T', but you don't listen. You just push harder. And then you hear the voice whisper 'can' and you discover that the person you thought you were is no match for the one you really are
