Well yeah, and I'm sad. But at the same time, I'm really happy that something can make me feel that sad. It's like, it makes me feel alive. You know? It makes me feel human. The only way I can feel this sad now, is if I felt something really good before. So I have to take the bad with the good. So I guess what I'm feeling is like a beautfiul sadness.Breakup & Lovesick, Grief0
She told me that I'm not enough
And she left me with a broken heart
She fooled me twice and it's all my fault
She cut too deep, now she left me scarred
'It was a mistake,' you said. But the cruel thing was, it felt like the mistake was mine, for trusting you.Breakup & Lovesick0
This is why we call people exes, I guess - because the paths that cross in the middle end up separating at the end. It's too easy to see an X as a cross-out. It's not, because there's no way to cross out something like that. The X is a diagram of two paths.Breakup & Lovesick0
When things break, it's not the actual breaking that prevents them from getting back together again. It's because a little piece gets lost - the two remaining ends couldn't fit together, even if they wanted to. The whole shape has changed.Breakup & Lovesick0
I'd rather have a broken arm than a broken heart.Heart, Breakup & Lovesick0
'Cause baby you look happier, you do
My friends told me one day I'll feel it too
And until then I'll smile to hide the truth
But I know I was happier with you
At some point, you grow out of being attracted to that flame that burns you over and over and over again.Breakup & Lovesick, Falling in love, Fire0
I know you're somewhere, somewhere
I've been trapped in my mind, girl, just holding on
I don't wanna pretend we're something, we're nothing
I've been stuck thinking 'bout her, I can't hold on
I gave her everything
She took my heart and left me lonely
I think broken heart's contentious
I won't fix, I'd rather weep
I'm lost then I'm found
But it's torture bein' in love
Twenty candles, blow 'em out and open your eyes
We were lookin' forward to the rest of our lives
Used to keep my picture posted by your bedside
Now it's in your dresser with the socks you don't like
It changes you a little bit every time you either break someone's heart or get your heart broken.Heart, Breakup & Lovesick0
When you lose a lover it's like getting a bad haircut. It grows back in time.Breakup & Lovesick, Grief0
The world breaks us all and afterwards, some are stronger at the broken places.Breakup & Lovesick, Grief, New Beginning0
It is not the broken heart that kills, but broken pride, monseigneur.Breakup & Lovesick, Pride0
Man is born in a day, and he dies in a day, and the thing is easily over; but to have a sick heart for three-fourths of one's lifetime is simply to have death renewed every morning; and life at that price is not worth living.Breakup & Lovesick0
Heavy hearts, like heavy clouds in the sky, are best relieved by the letting of a little water.Heart, Crying & Tears, Breakup & Lovesick0
The pain doesn't go away. You just make room for it.Pain, Breakup & Lovesick0
To me, the very definition of the word 'broken' suggests that something can be fixed.Breakup & Lovesick, New Beginning, Motivation0
Because in the end, when you lose somebody, every candle, every prayer is not going to make up for the fact that the only thing you have left is a hole in your life where that somebody that you cared about used to be.Breakup & Lovesick0
When you lose someone, it stays with you. Always reminding you of how easy it is to get hurt.Breakup & Lovesick, Loss0
You can’t drink him away. It won’t work.Alcohol, Breakup & Lovesick0
You don't get to choose if you get hurt in this world. But you do have some say in who hurts you.Breakup & Lovesick0
It's funny because everything makes me think of you. I read a poem, and I wonder what you'd say about it.
I see people, and I wonder you'd know about them.
Everywhere I go, I run into something, that remindes me of you all over again.
It takes ten times as long to put yourself back together than it does to fall apart.Breakup & Lovesick0
Mrs. Hughes: 'But the poor man's heart is breaking for not knowing.'
Anna: 'Better a broken heart than a broken neck.'
The world will break your heart ten ways to Sunday. That's guaranteed.Life, Breakup & Lovesick0
Time after time after time I do all this shit for other people, and then I wake up and I'm empty. I have nothing.Breakup & Lovesick, Selflessness0
There’s a difference between saying good bye and letting go. Saying good bye is 'I'll see you again when I'm ready to hold your hand, and when you're ready to hold mine.' Letting go is 'I'll miss your hand. But I realized it's not mine to hold, and I will never hold it again.'Breakup & Lovesick, Farewell0
Stop telling me to follow my heart. It once led me to you.Heart, Breakup & Lovesick0
If nothing else, one day you can look someone straight in the eyes and say 'But I lived through it. And it made me who I am today.'Change, Breakup & Lovesick0
They say the first year after a major loss is the hardest. That’s an understatement; loss is its own brand of insanity and no relief from it. There are no shortcuts and the only way through grief is through it. You just have to get up every day and wait to go to bed every night, then wake up and do it all over again.Breakup & Lovesick, Grief, Loss0
I really think everyone should be important enough to just one other person on this freaking planet to be fought for. Even me. And nobody’s fighting for me. So I’m done.Breakup & Lovesick, Giving Up, Solitude & Being Alone0
You caused my heart to bleed and
You still owe me a reason
I can't figure out why, why I'm alone and freezing
While you're in the bed that she's in
Oh, you can hear me cry, see my dreams all die
From where you're standing on your own
It's so quiet here, and I feel so cold
This house no longer feels like home
A thousand deaths, and you recover from each. Not so the mind, the mind is much more fragile. Its scars run deep and do not heal. The brain is encased in a hard bone shell, difficult to breach, but with no defense against that which eats at it from within.Apprehension, Breakup & Lovesick, Grief, Thoughts0
Do you know the best thing about broken hearts? They can only really break once the rest is just scratches.Heart, Breakup & Lovesick0
Memories are worse than bullets.Memory, Breakup & Lovesick0
There are no happy endings.
Endings are the saddest part,
So just give me a happy middle
And a very happy start.
It's like you're homesick for a place that doesn't even exist.Desire, Breakup & Lovesick, Home0
It would be a privilege to have my heart broken by you.Heart, Breakup & Lovesick0
Poets often describe love as an emotion that we can't control, one that overwhelms logic and common sense. That's what it was like for me. I didn't plan on falling in love with you, and I doubt if you planned on falling in love with me. But once we met, it was clear that neither of us could control what was happening to us. We fell in love, despite our differences, and once we did, something rare and beautiful was created. For me, love like that has happened only once, and that's why every minute we spent together has been seared in my memory. I'll never forget a single moment of it.Breakup & Lovesick, Forgetting0
One day you'll know what love truly is. It's the sour and the sweet. And I know sour, which allows me to appreciate the sweet.Love, Breakup & Lovesick0
I know I'm not worthy of you. But I just can't help loving you. It's like wanting to touch a star - you know you'll never reach it, but you just gotta keep trying.Desire, Breakup & Lovesick, Love declerations0
Alison: 'I don't think I want anything more to do with love. Any more. I can't take it on.'
Cliff: 'You're too young to start giving up. Too young, and too lovely.'
A love like that was a serious illness, an illness from which you never entirely recover.Love, Breakup & Lovesick0
Real loneliness is not necessarily limited to when you are alone.Breakup & Lovesick, Solitude & Being Alone, Missing Someone0
I am coming to terms with the fact that loving someone requires a leap of faith, and that a soft landing is never guaranteed.Love, Trust, Breakup & Lovesick, Falling in love0
I fear feeling my heart break a second time, because I'm not sure I could survive it. I'd rather live alone than risk the pain.Breakup & Lovesick0
Broken hearts healed. Maybe the cracks were always there, like thin scars, but they healed. People lived and worked, laughed and ate, walked and talked with those cracks.
For many, even the scars healed and they loved again.
