© I’m Sorry You Walked Away

When You Lose Love:
MYTH: The pain of losing love will go away faster if you ignore it.
Fact: Trying to ignore your pain or keep it from surfacing will only make it worse in the long run. For real healing, it is necessary to face your sadness (or grief) and actively deal with it.
MYTH: It’s important to be “be strong” in the face of loss.
Fact: Feeling sad, frightened, or lonely is a normal reaction to loss. Crying doesn’t mean you are weak. Letting your true feelings show can help you.
MYTH: If you don’t cry, it means you aren’t sorry about the loss.

Fact: Crying is a normal response to sadness, but it’s not the only one. Those who don’t cry may feel the pain just as deeply as others. They may simply have other ways of showing it.



It’s nearly two in the morning.
Come take advantage of me.

I’m on my third cup of coffee
After chugging a bottle of wine.
I already threw the empty at
The email I was writing to you
To show you I was drunk... and vulnerable.

Don’t you want it?
You used to want it.
You used to want me.

I’m sorry it took me too long to realize it.
I’m sorry I will never send that email.
I’m sorry I’m willing to degrade myself
Just to get you
To come back,
To touch me,
To tease me,
To stay here — with me.

  1. ...we're often too stupid to realize the treasure we have, til it slips away

    ...in the case of an unrequited love, i toss her into a tiny, boat... sans oars, sails or other propulsion... then cast it upon the sea of indifference

    ...much later, the pain remains, though no longer unbearable
