0032. I know as long as you are happy, I can get through this. But it still kills me to see you with her. Not because she is perfect for you, not because she makes you smile, not because she is what you need but because she’s my best friend.

0033. No matter how loud I laugh, I’m still not happy. No matter how hard I cry, the sadness inside grows. The more people love me, the more I feel empty. I just need you to love me for all the pain to go.

0034. He has the power to hurt me and I’m afraid if I let him know what I feel then that’s exactly what he’ll do. But even if he does hurt me, I’ll find some reason to understand why. It’s just that he can do no wrong in my eyes.

0058. I can say I’m fine when you don’t see me cry. I can say I can move on when I couldn’t even try. I can say I’m happy when I just want to die. But I can’t say I still love you when you said goodbye.

0067. The day you broke my heart, I dropped a tear in the sea. I was lost and distorted, without you I can’t be me. And when they find that tear, that single drop of pain, that’s the one and only time this heart forgets your name.

0068. You always say you hate to see me hurt, you hate to see me cry. So all of those times you’ve hurt me, were you closing your eyes?

0069. I know I shouldn’t care or wonder how you are. But I just can’t hide the pain inside my broken heart. I’m fighting back emotions I’ve never fought before. Cause I’m not supposed to love you anymore.

0071. I hope I never met you so I wouldn’t have fallen for you and I wouldn’t have to struggle with my feelings cause I know it’s impossible. Please tell me what to do. Should I just keep distance and try to forget you?

0077. Sad: I’ve fallen in love so many times but love never gave me a chance to know how it feels to be loved back by the person I love so much.

0078. Why do I have to leave you now that I’m madly in love with you? Why do I have to say goodbye now that my everything is you? Why do I have to set you free now that all I need is you? And why must you love another when I am here loving you?

0079. You’ve broken my heart by making me fall and now I wish I never knew you at all. You’ve played me around as if I were some kind of game and now things will never be the same. But here I am, still as stupid as I can be, hoping and wishing that you will still love me.

0080. You promised to take care of me but you hurt me. You promised to give me joy but you brought me tears. You promised your love but you gave me pain. Me? I promised you nothing but I gave you my heart.

0085. You told me you love me but I don’t wanna believe it. You asked me to believe you but I didn’t. You know why? How can you tell me you love me if I saw a reflection of another girl in your eyes?

0086. It’s sad when you want someone but you’d have to give up someone else to get them. Then when you’ve already done that, you find out that the one you gave up once also gave up everything for you.

0087. It’s okay if you can’t love me nor even think of me. I’m not asking you to. It’s really okay for me if you can’t cause you see? What I told you was “I love you” not “please love me too”.

0093. You think I’ll cry? You think I’ll breakdown? Damn, you’re wrong! I knew your games before, I just played along. If you think I’m stupid, yup, you’re right! I fell for a player with his game I couldn’t fight.

0095. He holds me when I start to cry, makes me smile with just his eyes. He shares my hopes, dreams, and fears. He wipes away all my tears. I love him without regret. I just haven’t found him yet.

0096. You’re there but not really. You’re mine but not really. I never really had you so I never really lost you. I suppose I’ll just be this someone wishfully thinking. I had you, you had me but then again not really.

0097. Ouch: I never really wanted to let go of you but you wanted to be free. I wanted to stay but you wanted me to go. I never gave up till you told me that all the time I was loving you, you were wishing me gone.

0098. How do you define love? Do you make people fall for you and feel a short damn moment of happiness? Then the next thing you do, dump them? If that’s how you define love then I should say you’ve loved me quite well.

0099. If you only knew how much I wanted to hold your hand and make you stay, if you only knew how much I cried when you went away, if you only felt the pain I did then maybe you could’ve felt the love I hid.

0100. My friend once asked me if I do love you, I answered, “Yes.” He asked me again, “Does he love you?” I sat down, looked at the stars, closed my eyes and said, “Wishes do come true, right?”

This is a call to arms. A call to be gentle, to be forgiving, to be generous with yourself. The next time you look into the mirror, try to let go of the story line that says you’re too fat or too sallow, too ashy or too old, your eyes are too small or your nose too big; just look into the mirror and see your face.

The fact that we still live with dogs, even when we don’t have to herd or hunt our dinner, gives me hope for humans and canines alike.”
