You'll never be mine again
by I wish you were mine

We were best friends in high school, we were like brother and sister, but then, in 11th grade feelings started to develop between us and we tried dating. It didn't work out because we were young and he was a player. I knew that but I took a chance. Then, when he went off to college we started to talk about getting together again and we started to date. What I didn't know was that he had gotten back together with his ex-girlfriend... he was dating both of us. My friend told me he was with his ex and when I confronted him, he ignored me.

My heart broke in half. I couldn't believe it. I loved him so much. I was even thinking about marrying him. I was head-over-heels for him, but I knew he wouldn't be faithful and I had just had it. There was a poem on LovePoetry.com that helped me- Farewell to Love by Michael Drayton.

I just stopped calling him and moved on with my life, but everyday I think about him. Sometimes things remind me of him. If someone smiles and that smile looks like him or if I see someone who looks like him, my heart skips a beat. I have spoken to him since we broke up. It's been two years and he is still the man I love and I don't know what to do. I'm with someone else now and so is he and I love him. He has this hold over me that I just can't get off. My love life has suffered. I think it is time I say farewell to a man I have loved for so long. I know that nothing is gonna' come from this and I'm just putting my heart through pain that it doesn't need.

Life is hard when you love someone you can't have, but wake up and look at yourself. You shouldn't put yourself through so much pain when the person isn't suffering like you. When the one you love is with someone else and there's nothing you can do about it- move on.
