Directions to a HeartbreakThis is the way you should break my heart.
Firstly, you have to call me over the phone, since we're both too cowardly to see eachother's faces. Call on a weekend, perferably a Friday night so I can cope over the weekend and stay home that night to curl under the covers.
Tell me, "We had great times but-" then pause, and let me say "But what? Are you breaking up with me?" Say this, "No no no, I'm not...well...yes and no. I really like you but-" pause again because you don't know why you're doing this. "But what?" I will persist. "Is there someone else? Is it something I did? What?" Sense that I am growing angry, and imagine my face contorting to hold back tears. Decide I am ugly. Hate me for it. Do not say "It's not you, it's me." because that's cliche and you're original. Do not say it's someone else, because that will send me into a jealous rage, and you wouldn't want that. Do not tell me we're just too different, because I love you and despite my stubbornness, I would change for you.
Heartbreak...HEARTBREAK TASTES JUST LIKE STEELHeartbreak...9 years ago in Songs & Lyrics More Like This
How do you feel? I designed myself to love you more, I scratch your skin, I'm waiting outside to tell you you're lovely.
I crawl to your house and I nail myself to your door with my arms outspread, so you can see that I love you more.
I slit my wrists with porcelain and I tear my throat to shreds so you would notice me, finally, finally.
I swallow my promise to never taste this again, I'm laughing as I bleed to death, as I bleed to death, as I bleed to death
Hold out. It's such a waste to say that you need me more, when you really don't at all.
It's the iron taste of blood in my mouth from biting my tongue for way too long.
Smiling as I raise my head and softly ask how was your day and I'll sleep on the couch at night, I'll even stay out of your way, I'll keep you safe when you are not, I'll keep you warm when you are cold, I'll wake you up at 2 am just to tell you that I care.
I find solace in the curves of your hips, I think you're beautiful even tho

I used to search the skies with you,
and never, ever worry.
Now I just waste your time,
you're always in a hurry.
I'm tired of playing this dumb game.
I want to say we're through.
But I never get the words just right
'cause I secretly still love you.
I dream about your eyes at night,
I see you in the stars.
I pray, I think, I hope someday
this love would both be ours.
You were so kind and loving,
I thought our bond was true.
But then one day you turned away.
My heart was slashed in two.
The words I say and things I do
seem to always break my heart.
because I remember our love, sweet and tender,
and the horror that tore us apart.
Love and HeartbreakLove is when you can't stop thinking about them,Love and Heartbreak9 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
when you hear their voice inside your head.
You can tell it's them just by their scent.
When you want a picture of just the two of you,
so they can always "be with you".
Love is when you call them
just to talk about anything; just to hear their voice.
When you worry about them if something happens,
when they cheer you up by giving you a hug
or just staying by your side.
Love is being able to read their eyes.
You can see when they're happy,
and help them when they're sad.
When you don't need to talk to each other,
because your eyes talk for the two of you.
Heartbreak is when you cry
because you can't stop thinking about them.
When you wish you had a picture
just to be able to say "that was us..."
Heartbreak is when you miss their phone calls
and their warm random hugs.
When both know you miss the other
Just because of the pain in your eyes.
Love is having, heartbreak is missing.
HeartbreakHe deceived me, just like everyone else, asking meHeartbreak11 years ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
Ever so patiently to open up to him and share
All my haunting thoughts, those that keep me awake.
Racking sobs erupting from my trembling lips,
Tossing and turning all night, so I do as he asks,
Bearing my soul to him, letting him see my feelings,
Revealing parts of me no one else knew,
Extracting painful memories and entrusting secrets
All the while, he leads me on. I really should have
Known, should have known he would betray me.
HeartbreakThe empty void that cannot be filledHeartbreak11 years ago in Songs & Lyrics More Like This
The sweet and bitter sorrow
Knowing that things just simply won't
Get any better tomorrow
The feeling that makes you want to scream
Until the bloody day is done
As you throw those love letters away
One by one
Can't forget the good times
Can't pretend the fun was all a lie
Can't wish I didn't remember
Because it hurts when he walks by
Reminiscing all the while
The laughs, the smiles, the secrets
Memories and hopes shattered
While my broken heart still frets
Standing here all alone
You'd think the pain would dull
But singing all the songs in the world
These thoughts reverberate against my skull
Seems like it's been forever
My soul won't seem to mend
Sometimes I wish I'd go numb
Sometimes I wish my life would end
No light at the end of this tunnel
Pitch black, all I can see
Wonder when this feeling will go
If I'll ever run free
Free of the guilt, the shame
Free of the rejection
Free to be a butterfly
No longer under your inspection
You know, I know

Is my lie
That I use daily
To cover my sadness
Is my being
That makes up what's left
Of this lonesome shell
That encases death
Is a release
That shatters reality
Freeing all of those
Who no longer feel love
Is just a game
That always ends trajicly
Tearing apart the souls
Of those intertwined by fate
Is something fake
That's used as an excuse
For leaving someone close
When they need your support
Is waht I thought I had
That feeling of having a friend
Without them I am nothing
I'll never learn to mend
Is what I need to do
That lack of self esteem
I need to find a way to stop

HeartbreakTears coursing down my cheeks,Heartbreak8 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Scrambling to dash away their presence.
Running from the room,
Trying not to let the others see.
Hearing footsteps follow,
Wishing they wouldn't.
Why does this happen at the worst times?
Why can't it happen in the privacy of my own home?
The heartache's always there,
Though you try to hide it.
You try to continue you're existence as if
You harbored no such hurt.
But every once in a while,
It will make itself known.
You will be unable to stop it.
Forcing its presence to be acknowledged,
It allows you no time to run.
No time to push it back into its corner.
Leaves you running from the room,
Dashing away all tears.
Brought on by the simplest of things.
Either it destroys your life,
Ruining all pretense to a normal one.
Or it bides its time,
Waiting till it is able to
Make you relive that terror of knowing
That everything you thought was truth,
Is, in reality, a lie.

Im melting inside
Im loosing my soul
Im loosing myself
Im loosing control
Im spiraling down
Im falling fast
Im deathly afraid
Im afraid of my past
Im dissolving into nothing

Im disappearing from your thoughts
Im far from being near
And as Im melting inside
Its all because of you
I cant sustain these feelings
That I know to be true.

I never thought I'd learn the word...
never thought I'd be betrayed...
like those girls in the movies...the girls on tv...
I never thought....
they would become...
"I'll never be so foolish..."
"As to fall in love with someone
who would do such a thing...
as to break my heart"
I met you.
I thought you were grand...
I fell in love...
and I never thought I'd be deceived...
and I never thought...
it'd be by you.
as time went by, your eyes began to stray...
falling on another...
and all the nights I cried...
I feared your heart...
although she took no notice..
she would never be yours...
her heart was of another...
one who wouldn't make her cry...
oh, how lucky she was...
so much luckier..
for though you said it wasn't true,
[the key word there is "said"...]
that everything I thought and felt..
was simply of my head...
these things were lies....

It's pathetic I have nothing left to die for
All I wanted was you in my arms
All I got was a heartbreak
Another day passes by
Still my wound troubles
Still I wear a false smile
Another year will pass by
And will I be healed then?
Never to feel your flesh against mine
Never to have your soft embrace
Never again to feel your weight on my leg
I wanted to say I belived the lie
I still want to say the truth
There was no truth
There was only Lies
What happens to the Soldier in world peace?
What happens to the Warrior when there's nothing left to fight?
What happens to the poet when everything's healed?
What happens to my heart when you lie?

She rips apart
Her tattered heart.
And throws it on the floor.
"What's the use in having it,
I don't need it anymore."
Without the love her life
By her side forever,
She feels as if she
Could never love another.
He left her standing there,
Out in the cold,
With nothing but a good-bye.
No "i love you" or explanation of why...
She loves him so, and he loves her not.
He never did at all.
He just lied to her, and when he said he would,
He never even called.
He just let her wonder,
And lead her on, hurting her more each day.
He never knew that she loved him,
In every single way.
He said he loved her,
Just as much as she had,
But everytime he lied to her, she just felt so bad.
She felt as if she wasn't good enough,
Or wasn't as pretty as the other girls.
Sometimes during arguements he just got so rough.
Even so, she loved him, and believe he loved her too,
Now that he's gone, she can't seem to get through.
She's giving up on love, and everything it brings,
All she sees is the bad and the evi

I count how many steps you take
As you leave my life forever.
When you turn away from me
I lose sight of the face I
Once thought was in my life forever.
When you don't speak to me
My heart breaks since
I miss the way your voice sounded
When I assumed you were mine forever.
When you leave my heart
The pieces of my broken heart
Are missing you so.
When you're gone forever
You leave heartbreak in your wake.
I never thought it'd hurt that much
When you left.
Days seem likes years without you.
I need you when I cry
Even though I never though so before.
You're out of my life forever.
You've left me with severe heartbreak.
And the sore truth is.....
I still love you.

So I will stand by my new lover's side
And staple together the pages of our years
The blacked out fragments of our faded storyline
And the harsh words and silences that still sting my ears
My my, my love
It must have gone by so fast
I haven't grown any older, why have you?
The memories of twisted dreams, of whirlwinds and of make-believe
The nowhere fairytale with a lazy end
The phone calls late and dates with cyberspace
You never could have been anything real to me
It would break the veil of fantasy, I know I was dreaming
Of you and of kisses rough against the midnight sky
The midwinter sun has finally arrived
And so has my beautiful beginning
The middle of our downward spiral has drawn to a close
It's too bad you never knew where to end or begin
I won't dangle from your sins again
I'm through with flailing inside your web
You can't leave me hanging if I've already fallen
Caught by loving whispers of truthful delights
I find your anger to be quite amusing

I didn't know it was possible
for you to hurt me in so many ways.
Should have learned from my mistakes
but I can't move on
no matter how hard I try.
I see your silhouette
Black against a blood red sky
The silver moon glowing behind
your head like a halo
But as I move position
I see you from a different perspective
You're silver and translucent
Reflecting the light from the moon
And as the moon hides behind clouds
The way you looked at me...that piercing glare
of hatred that turned me to stone
I can literally smell the hatred on your clothes
Radiating from your body like the light
given off from your golden hair.
You spoke to me, my ears bled
All those hurtful things you said
You cut my heart open with your dagger tongue
...and rubbed salt into the wound

Like glass when shattered,
Pieces lying there,
To be fixed and catered.
The pain of separation

Tearing my heart for its consumption.
Why isn't it against the laws?
A promise made in such haste,
What a total waste.
Never to be broken.
Never to be together.
The promise now broken

she's hiding under the layers and layers of makeup he slathered onto her. for the sake of making her beautiful. she's so used to the same product, but she knows she needs a new makeup remover. one that will work, wipe and clear her mind. because she doesn't need this -- but she wants it.

QuotesHave you ever felt that feeling whenever you see someone, you freeze and your heart starts to beat so fast and you have to hold on to something so you wouldnt fall? Sometimes when they talk to you, do you utter stupid words and end up embarrassing yourself? Its not that you want it, but just the presence of that person makes your heart beat faster and slower at the same time. Would you be brave and admit your feelings? What if its simply not meant to be, do you give up? Or keep trying and end up with nothing? Well, thats love. Its irony speaks, but you got to take risks to get answers. When you meet someone and you gradually fall in love with that person, try to express your love to her because every moment you wasted would be equal to tons of regret in the end. Dont wait until its too late to tell someone how much you love, how much you care. Because when they are gone, no matter how loud you shout and cry they wont hear you anymore.Quotes9 years ago in Teen More Like This
