LP Welcome to LovePoetry's Reflections! LP

Solitude is a party
  Where I invite myself
     To dine on "implication,"
       To drink "significance."

Thus I fill my separate need
  And I must confess...
     There could not be a better host
        Nor a more intriguing guest.

LovePoetry has created this feature so people can share their experiences of loss, anguish and distress accompanying an upheaval in their lives. It is hoped that such an exchange of feelings and experiences will help in dealing with the problems we all share when we become vulnerable by seeking and giving that precious commodity identified as LOVE...

Featured Selection from: Breaking Up
-Dallas is my WORLD-

The kind of relationship that my boyfriend and I had was what you would call "perfect." We never got into any arguments and everything that was said or done between us was so great.

We were together for almost a whole year. He had a previous girlfriend before me. She was a real show. She never knew how to leave him alone... not even after a year! It got to the point where I didnít talk to him as much as I used to and we started to lose touch. I still loved him so very much; he was still my world, but something was missing and we both knew it when the first argument came into our relationship as our 9 month anniversary came up.

The reasons given for our separating and drifting apart were very unacceptable. He said I was in a whole different town (only 20 miles away) and he said that I didnít care for what anyone wanted except me. I couldnít believe he had made that come out of his mouth because I had always put him before anyone elseÖ even my family and friends! I made most of the trips to see him. He did however; make a few trips to see me. I just couldnít understand how he could do this to me after all this time.

I read the LovePoetry poem Wanting You Back!! by Brenda Annabelle and it really got to me. That is definitely how I have been feeling since we separated.

I tried so hard to call him and talk to him about everything. I bought him cards, candy, clothes, poems, and I even made him cd's with all of our songs on them. I also tried to go visit him.

Since losing the most important person in my life, I have still tried to call him and be there for him and itís been almost 3 months since the break-up. He has met someone new and itís someone who isnít me! She was supposed to be my friend... not date my boyfriend! I still talk to him every once in a while, but I try not to because he still tells me he loves me and he still tells me he misses me. Itís very hard to hear those caring words when I know that they arenít going to change how things are. I will never have him back... thatís one thing Iím sure of. We will just have to settle for being friends.

When you're helplessly in love, and sure that itís true; when he's all you're thinking of and youíve got nothing else to do, just do yourself a favor and think the whole thing through. Ask yourself one question... is he thinking of you too?
