People are afraid of themselves, of their own reality; their feelings most of all. People talk about how great love is, but that’s bullshit. Love hurts. Feelings are disturbing. People are taught that pain is evil and dangerous. How can they deal with love if they’re afraid to feel? Pain is meant to wake us up. People try to hide their pain. But they’re wrong. Pain is something to carry, like a radio. You feel your strength in the experience of pain. It’s all in how you carry it. That’s what matters. Pain is a feeling. Your feelings are a part of you. Your own reality. If you feel ashamed of them, and hide them, you’re letting society destroy your reality. You should stand up for your right to feel pain.
Jim Morrison

I am lost without you. I am souless, a drifter without a home, a solitary bird in a flight to nowhere. I am all these things and I am nothing at all. This, my darling, is my life without you. I long for you to show me how to live again.
Nicholas Sparks, Message in A Bottle

Well, growing up sucks. Not all kisses are magic, and most boys don’t live up to your expectations. But there are times when love, romance, relationships… it all fits together perfectly, and it’s incredible, and it’s those moments, no matter how depressingly few and far between, that make growing up worth it.
Dawson’s Creek

But that’s just it – the butterflies never seem to accompany the right people. And all the guys who are right for you, they never make your stomach go flip flop.
Dawson’s Creek

Are you here because you need someone or because you need me?
Say Anything

They may forget what you said, but they will never forget how you made them feel.
Carl W. Buechner

A picture’s worth a thousand words but not worth the words I need to hear. I miss you so much that it hurts, and tonight, I wish you were here with me so I could make you see the stars, they lay across the sky so perfectly. They remind me of all the times, when we used to sit underneath them, those summer nights and fall in love.
Matchbook Romance

That’s the thing about needs. Sometimes when you get them met, you don’t need them anymore.
Sex and the City

And it hurts to want everything and nothing at the same time.
Michelle Branch

Maybe we like the pain. Maybe we’re wired that way. Because without it – I don’t know – Maybe we just wouldn’t feel real. What’s that saying? Why do I keep hitting myself with a hammer? Because it feels so good when I stop.
Grey’s Anatomy

We could only wonder how she would be able to dust herself off and start over again. And yet we knew we couldn’t bear for her not to, and felt ever more optimistic that after all her struggles, she would someday meet her man, her equal a man with the same charisma, love of life, and humanity she possessed. In the meantime, she’d have her friends. And the knowledge that she deserved the world.
Sex &The City

The more you love someone the more he wants from you and the less you have to give since you’ve already given him your love.
Nikki Giovanni

Yesterday at the market, I saw a couple holding hands… and I realized we’ll never do that. Never anything like it. No picnics or unguarded smiles. No rings. Just… stolen moments that leave too quickly.
Tristan &Isolde

If he’s not the guy, if what he needs from you just isn’t there… let him go. Break his heart and make it a clean break. But if you really think you can love this guy, I’m talking scary, messy, no emotions barred need. If you’re ready for that, think about what you’re about to lose.
Buffy the Vampire Slayer

It’s like you hear a song on the radio, but you’ve just gotta see what else is playing before you decide you actually want to listen to that song. What happens if a great song comes on and you missed it though, so you flip back, but all you get is the news and then you went from something to nothing?
Party of Five

I know a lot of people know who he is, but I also know that there are not many who got to see the guy that I did and that guy, well , I’ll never forget him… never. I’ve learned so much about life and emotion from knowing him and I wouldn’t change a thing about it. Your heart needs to go through some bumps like these in order to make it through. Besides, no matter what he’s done or not done he had the biggest impact on me these past four years. And, I know, no matter how many years go by… my stomach will always do a little flip when I see that face.
Hollie Seals

I miss you. Whenever something funny happens, I always wanna tell you about it.
Sex and the City

The tough thing about following your heart is that people forget to mention that sometimes the heart takes you to places you shouldn’t be. Places that are scary as they are exciting and as dangerous as they are alluring. Sometimes your heart cannot take you to places that lead to happy endings. That’s not even the difficult part; the difficult part is when you follow your heart, you leave normal; you go into the unknown and once you do you can never go back.

I still recall every summer night like it was yesterday.
Story of The Year

Did you think this summer that there was any way that you would fall in love with me? Did you ever imagine that everyone would say we were perfect for each other? I did, and that’s why I didn’t give up after months of fighting for you.
Heather Fox

Sometimes people give up too easily. They lose sight of what really matters and they let their pride get in the way of what’s so important: Love. I say this ‘cause I think I gave up too easy once.
Kenny Chesney

She wasn’t bitter. She was sad, though. But it was a hopeful kind of sad. The kind of sad that just takes time.
Stephen Chbosky

Man, I screwed up. I hurt the one person in the world who would never dream of hurting me.
Michelle Burns

I miss your lips and everything attached to them.

There is nothing sadder in this life than to watch someone you love walk away after they have left you. To watch the distance between your two bodies expand until there is nothing but empty space, and silence.
Sarah Dessen

You spend all your time looking for love yet you feeling nothing even when it’s staring you in the face. I will love again but you, you will spend all your life knowing you turned your back on love and that makes you a hypocrite.
Cruel Intentions

I don’t understand why God would let us meet if there was no way that we could ever be together.
City of Angels

The things we want most in life are the ones that hurt others. Sometimes we have to decide if the price of a broken heart is worth our happiness.
Betty Calloway

You think that you can use up your love. I think you can blow it all on one person. You can love so much, so deeply, that there is nothing left for anyone else.
Tony Parson

And I’m worried…I, I’m afraid that he took away my ability to believe. And I hate him for that. Because I always believed before. And now I just feel lost. And I am, I’m trying to put myself out there, but I feel hopeless.
Sex &The City

I know in the past I’ve caused you pain and I’m sorry. And I’ll always be sorry ‘til the day I die. And I hate this pen I’m holding because I should be holding you. I hate this paper under my hand because it isn’t you. I even hate this letter because it’s not the whole truth. Because the whole truth is so much more than a letter can even say. If you want to hate me, go ahead. If you want to burn this letter, do it. You could burn the whole world down; you could tell me to go to hell. I’d go, if you wanted me to. And I’d send you a letter from there.
My So-Called Life

I have all these feelings, these weird feelings, and I’ve had this burning desire to express them. But I can’t. I just can’t. And these feelings, they’re trapped. They’re like stuck in my heart and I feel so lonely.
Dawson’s Creek

It comes in waves. There’s a lull and then another wave hits you. I just wanted you to know that it’s okay not to be fine sometimes.
Grey’s Anatomy

If wanting you is wrong then I’m wrong I’ll admit it. Time after time you admit you don’t mean it.
The Wreckers

My daddy used to tell me that the first time you fall in love, it changes your life forever, and no matter how hard you try, the feeling never goes away.
The Notebook

There are things that used to make me smile; one of them was you.
Alkaline Trio

I live to like you and I can’t like you anymore. So, when you get your heart splattered all over hell and you’re feeling really low and dirty, don’t run to me to help pull you back up because, maybe, for the first time in your life, I won’t be there.
Pretty in Pink

I know that things between us are pretty much beyond repair right now. And I wouldn’t ever presume to try and make everything better with a conversation, so that’s not what this is — but I just wanted to tell you, I wanted to say about everything that happened last spring… I’m sorry. I’m sorry for the pain it caused you. But mostly I’m sorry for my part in it. And I’m sorry for the pain I know it caused you. But mostly I’m sorry because I miss our friendship. And however far off it may be, I look forward to the day that we can be friends again, So, until then…
Dawson’s Creek

Oh there’s nothing like a true love to go and make a fool of someone just like before… And right there for a minute, I forgot that you don’t love me anymore.
Tim McGraw

Have you ever been in love? Horrible, isn’t it? It makes you so vulnerable. It opens your chest and it opens your heart and it means someone can get inside you and mess you up. You build up all these defenses. You build up this whole armor, for years, so nothing can hurt you, then one stupid person, no different from any other stupid person, wanders into your stupid life…You give them a piece of you. They don’t ask for it. They do something dumb one day like kiss you, or smile at you, and then your life isn’t your own anymore. Love takes hostages. It gets inside you. It eats you out and leaves you crying in the darkness, so a simple phrase like ‘maybe we should just be friends’ or ‘how very perceptive’ turns into a glass splinter working its way into your heart. It hurts. Not just in the imagination. Not just in the mind. It’s a soul-hurt, a body-hurt, a real gets-inside-you-and-rips-you-apart pain. I hate love.
Neil Gaiman

Remember me, once in a while. Please promise me you’ll try. When you find that once again you long to take your heart back and be free, if you ever find a moment spare a thought for me
Phantom of the Opera

Don’t you hate that? Like bad guys, you’re like I just want to get
over you, I just want you out of my life. And as soon as you stop
thinking about them, they’ll send you a text message or they’ll call
you ‘cause they know you just stopped thinking about them. It’s
like a radar.
The Hills, Lauren

He tried to take away all the things that would let you love me without being in my bed, like a friend or a father. This has everything to do with him. This is about knowing the difference between right and wrong, between the truth and a lie. He took that from you. And if you can’t tell the difference, then you can’t trust anyone. And if you can’t trust, you can’t love.
Georgia Rule

Love never dies a natural death. It dies because we don’t know how to replenish its source. It dies of blindness and errors and betrayals. It dies of illness and wounds; it dies of weariness, of withering, of tarnishing.
Anais Nin

Some of us think holding on makes us strong; but sometimes it is letting go.
Hermann Hesse

You can’t go back to how things were. How you thought they were. All you really have… is now.
Jay Asher

Gravity is working against me, And gravity wants to bring me down
John Mayer

Oh gravity, stay the hell away from me. Oh gravity has taken better men than me. Now how can that be? Just keep me where the light is
John Mayer

If a guy isn’t calling you when he says he will,
or making sure you know that he’s dating you, then
you already have your answer. Stop making excuses
for him; his actions are screaming the truth:
he’s just not that into you.
He’s Just Not That Into You

I’m like the dumb girl that doesn’t get it. I’ve never been the dumb girl before. It ain’t so great.
Something’s Gotta Give

Once they’re in your head, they’re there for keeps until they either dump you or you manage to get over them. To be honest, I find the whole process completely exhausting.
Mr. Maybe by Jane Green

You can’t do that. You can’t snap your fingers and everything will go back to the way it was before. It’s not that simple.
The OC

All these years I’ve packed ice around my heart, now how do I melt it?
Cold Mountain

It’s not so much that we’re afraid of change or so in love with the old ways, but it’s that place in between that we fear . . . . It’s like being between trapezes. It’s Linus when his blanket is in the dryer. There’s nothing to hold on to
Marilyn Ferguson

Is it too late to call you on the phone
Too late to tell you I’m alone
I wanna wake you from another lonely night
Is it too late to wonder where you are
Too late to hold you in my arms
Cause if you’re looking for wonderful
I’m wonderful
Chantal Kreviazuk

The yellow ribbon on my neighbor’s gate
Always reminds me that someone’s awake
Just like me
I hear the sirens
And I watch the news
He laughs and leaves with his gun
And his blue uniform
And I pray God keeps him safe from harm
And I cry
‘Cause I’m alone
And the nights get so cold and long
And I try not to think he won’t come home
But I’m sleeping with the telephone
Reba & Faith

If I’d have known the way that this would end, if I’d have read the last page first, if I’d have had the strength to walk away, if I’d have known how this would hurt, I would have loved you anyway, I’d do it all the same, not a second I would change, not a touch that I would trade, had I known my heart would break, I’d have loved you anyway.
Trisha Yearwood

We’ve never grown apart. You never broke my heart with secrets that you’ve kept me from. We’ve never been untrue, and I’m still here with you through all the things we’ve never done.
Martina McBride

What value will there ever be in life, if we aren’t together?
Becoming Jane

The whole world realizes we’re meant to be together. They all know we’re more than ‘just friends.’ And for that split second that our eyes lock when we pass each other by, I begin to think if I actually have that chance. But then he comes along and puts his arm around you, and all I can do is put my hands in my pockets and just walk away.
Viki Jaan

As far as I’m concerned you’re just another picture to burn.
Taylor Swift

But for tonight I’ll stay here with you. Yes for tonight I’ll lay here with you. But when the sun hits your eyes, through your window they’ll be nothing you can do.
Joshua Radin

Relationships don’t work the way they do on television and in the movies: Will they, won’t they, and then they finally do and they’re happy forever — gimme a break. Nine out of ten of them end because they weren’t right for each other to begin with, and half the ones that get married get divorced, anyway.
Dr. Cox

“Why am I attracted to a person I know isn’t good?”
“Because you’re hoping you’re wrong and every time they do something that tells you they’re no good you ignore it and every time they come through and surprise you they win you over and you lose that argument with yourself that they’re not for you.
The Holiday

I was paying attention even when I told myself I wasn’t. If his voice hasn’t been the melody of my life, it’s been the bass line, so subtle you don’t notice it until it’s missing.
Jodi Picoult

Look, lots of people lose themselves in love. It’s no shame. They write songs about it. The hitch is, you can’t stay lost. Sooner or later, you have to get back to yourself.
Buffy the Vampire Slayer

People don’t know how to love. They bite rather than kiss. They slap rather than stroke. Maybe it’s because they recognize how easy it is for love to go bad, to become suddenly impossible… unworkable, an exercise of futility. So they avoid it and seek solace in angst, and fear, and aggression, which are always there and readily available. Or maybe sometimes… they just don’t have all the facts.
The Upside of Anger

My life is damn near perfect, but every once in a while I think about ‘that guy’, and the fairytale thing we had. I wondered if we’d still be together. Because the minute it got hard, the minute it stopped being a fairytale– I cut and ran. Real life is hard. Real life takes work. Real life is sometimes thoughtless and mean, but that doesn’t cancel out the love. So if you don’t love this girl– walk away. But if you look at her and you know she’s the one , you owe it to yourself to give it a second chance.
Private Practice

If you gave someone your heart and they died, did they take it with them? Did you spend the rest of forever with a hole inside you that couldn’t be filled?
Jodi Picoult

I, um, I have this problem. I broke up with my boyfriend, you see. And I’m pretty upset about it, so I wanted to talk to my best friend. […] The thing is, they’re both you.
Jodi Picoult

But I’m sorry now, and I dont know how to get it back to good.
Matchbox 20

I have loved badly, loved the great
Too soon, withdrawn my words too late;
And eaten in an echoing hall
Alone and from a chipped plate
The words that I withdrew too late,
Edna St. Vincent Millay

I do what most women do. I meet someone and some of it’s right, maybe he looks right, or has the right job, or the right background, and, instead of sitting back and waiting for him to reveal his other bits, I make them up. I decide how he thinks, how he’s going to treat me, and, sure enough, every time I conclude that this time he’s definitely my perfect man, and all of a sudden, well, not so suddenly perhaps, usually around six months after we’ve split up, I see that he wasn’t the person I thought he was at all.
Mr. Maybe by Jane Green

You do something, go someplace, see somebody, or hear something, and you start to think, ‘Maybe I should call him, just to say hello and see how he’s doing.’ But I never did.
Breaking Up

I’m a fool when you smile at me. I’m convinced I get caught up in you and I just can’t resist. I know you lie to me, it just drives me nuts, this one kiss could persuade me to believe your bluff.
Missy Elliot

You think you know me or something. Like you know what I’m thinking, what I’m feeling. You think you know what I want, and what I need. Who I love, and who I hate. But the truth of the matter is, you don’t even know yourself.
Maegan Michelle

So maybe l shouldn’t have called, was it too soon to tell? Oh what the hell, It doesn’t really matter. How do you redefine something that never really had a name? Has your opinion changed?
Savage Garden

You can’t live your life for other people. You’ve got to do what’s right for you, even if it hurts some people you love.
Noah Calhoun , ‘The Notebook’ by Nicholas Sparks

Ahlex is cool: you know whenever you just can’t help but fall for the bad boy? the one that you know won’t treat you right and will make you feel like shit? yeah. i hate that.

Now, I think that I should have known that he was magic all along. I did know it – but I should have guessed that it would be too much to ask to grow old with and see our children grow up together. So now, he is a legend when he would have preferred to be a man.
Jackie Kennedy

I’m waiting
To hear your voice again
And lighten up this heart
I’m holding on to stupid memories
But I see you in every little thing
Mindy Smith

I need a hurricane
To straighten out this place
It maybe the only way
To salvage any sense I have left
To move on
Mindy Smith

I don’t want to see you or feel you
I don’t want to look into your eyes
I don’t want to touch you or miss you
I just want to love your memory tonight
I can’t handle all this pain
All we ever do is fight anyway
Why we even tried I haven’t a clue
With hearts involved
There’s way too much to lose
Miranda Lambert

Dear Holly, I don’t have much time. I don’t mean literally, I mean you’re out buying ice cream and you’ll be home soon. But I have a feeling this is the last letter, because there is only one thing left to tell you. It isn’t to go down memory lane or make you buy a lamp, you can take care of yourself without any help from me. It’s to tell you how much you move me, how you changed me. You made me a man, by loving me Holly. And for that, I am eternally grateful… literally. If you can promise me anything, promise me that whenever you’re sad, or unsure, or you lose complete faith, that you’ll try to see yourself through my eyes. Thank you for the honor of being my wife. I’m a man with no regrets. How lucky am I. You made my life, Holly. But I’m just one chapter in yours. There’ll be more. I promise. So here it comes, the big one. Don’t be afraid to fall in love again. Watch out for that signal, when life as you know it ends. P.S. I will always love you
PS I Love You

Cast your eyes on the ocean. Cast your soul to the sea. When the dark night seems endless, please remember me
Coreena McKennit

You know that I can’t stop counting all the days that you’re not here to stay. You know I miss you more, more than yesterday.
Mustard Plug

I miss you a little, I guess you could say…. a little too much, a little too often, a little more every day.
John Michael Montgomery

It was almost as if part of you had come with me.
nights in rodanthe by nicholas sparks

think of me fondly when we’ve said good bye. Remember me, once in a while. Please promise me you’ll try. When you find that once again you long to take your heart back and be free, if you ever find a moment spare a thought for me.
Andrew Webber

You know that place between sleep and awake? Where you still remember dreaming? That’s where I will always think of you.

I miss you. Whenever something funny happens, I always wanna tell you about it.
Sex and the City

It had taken her years to understand, but now she was a firm believer: Love was that way. You could not render it in black and white. It always came down to the strange, blended shades of gray.
Jodi Picoult, Picture Perfect

There is never a sudden revelation, a complete and tidy explanation for why it happened, or why it ends, or why or who you are. You want one and I want one, but there isn’t one. It comes in bits and pieces, and you stitch them together wherever they fit, and when you are done you hold yourself up, and still there are holes and you are a rag doll, invented, imperfect. And yet you are all that you have, so you must be enough. There is no other way.
Mayra Hornbacher, Wasted

Here’s to the nights we felt alive, here’s to the tears you knew you’d cry, here’s to goodbye, tomorrow’s gonna come too soon
Eve 6

And it’s like being hit by a truck– over and over again. But you stay in the road. Because when you aren’t being hit by a truck, the road is the best place in the world to be.
Hollie Seals

There are some hurts that you never completely get over. And you think time will diminish their presence and to a degree…it does. But it still hurts, because, well…hurt hurts.
The Story Of Us

He thought time and patience would change me, and, though I knew he was dead wrong, I also knew that I would let him try. He was my best friend. I would always love him, and it would never, ever be enough.
Stephanie Meyer

‘This wouldn’t be so hard if I didn’t love him. There should be a pill you can take to make love go away.’
‘Why would you want to make love go away? It’s hard enough to find it in the first place.’
The Women

He wanted to take his love back from her so badly. The old techniques didn’t work anymore. In fact, they’d never worked. How do you stop loving someone? It was one of the world’s more brutal mysteries. The more you tried, the less it worked.
Anne Brashares

If you hear a song that makes you cry and you don’t want to cry anymore, you don’t listen to that song anymore. But you can’t get away from yourself. You can’t decide not to see yourself anymore. You can’t decide to turn off the noise in your head.
Jay Asher

It is no surprise to me that hardly anyone tells the truth about how they feel. The smart ones keep themselves to themselves for good reason. Why would you want to tell anyone anything that’s dear to you? Even when you like them and want nothing more than to be closer than close to them? It’s so painful to be next to someone you feel strongly about and know you can’t say the things you want to.
Henry Rollins

It’s the tragedy of loving, you can’t love anything more than something you miss.
Johnathan Foer

Parting is a joint decision, a person could not leave you if you were not willing to release them.

We always inevitably find ourselves wanting to run back to the ones we used to love, for some reason, thinking it would work out differently the second time around

My cold, hard heart exposed, finally, for what it truly was. Fair warning, I thought. I should have told you from the start. I will let you down.
Sarah Dessen

Look at the sky now. What color is it? Or the way a hawk flies. Or you wake up and your ribs are bruised thinking so hard on somebody. What do you call that?
Cold Mountain

‘Tis better to have loved and lost than never to have loved at all.
Alfred Lord Tennyson

Love never dies a natural death. It dies because we don’t know how to replenish its source. It dies of blindness and errors and betrayals. It dies of illness and wounds; it dies of weariness, of witherings, of tarnishing.
Anais Nin

Love does not begin and end the way we seem to think it does. Love is a battle, love is a war; love is a growing up.
James A. Baldwin

Wherever you will go I will let you down, But this lullaby goes on.
Sarah Dessen

We fell in love, despite our differences, and once we did, something rare and beautiful was created. For me, love like that has only happened 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.
Nicholas Sparks (The Notebook)

You can’t live your life for other people. You’ve got to do what’s right for you, even if it hurts some people you love.
Nicholas Sparks (The Notebook)

It’s possible to go on, no matter how impossible it seems, and that in time, the grief . . . lessens. It may not go away completely, but after a while it’s not so overwhelming.
Nicholas Sparks (Dear John)

I don’t know that love changes. People change. Circumstances change.
Nicholas Sparks

Our story has three parts: a beginning, a middle, and an end. And although this is the way all stories unfold, I still can’t believe that ours didn’t go on forever.
— Nicholas Sparks (Dear John)

“You really love her don’t you,” she said.
“With all my heart.”
She looked as sad as I’d ever seen her.
“What’s your heart telling you to do?”
“I don’t know.”
“Maybe”, she said gently, “You’re trying to hard to hear it.”
— Nicholas Sparks

Without you in my arms, I feel an emptiness in my soul. I find myself searching the crowds for your face – I know it’s an impossibility, but I cannot help myself.
— Nicholas Sparks (Message in a Bottle)

You always have a choice. It’s just that some people make the wrong one.
Nicholas Sparks (The Guardian)

The reason it hurts so much to separate is because our souls were connected. Maybe they always have and will be. Maybe we’ve lived a thousand lives before this one and in each of them we’ve found each other. And maybe each time, we’ve been forced apart for the same reasons. That means that this goodbye is both goodbye for the past ten thousand years and a prelude to what will come. When i look at you, i see your charm and your gentleness and know they have grown stronger with every life you have lived. And i know i have spent every life before this one searching for you. not someone like you, but you, for your soul and mine must always come together. And then, for some reason neither of us understands we were forced to say goodbye. I would love to tell you that everything will work out for us, And i promise to do all i can to make sure it does. But if we never meet again and this is truly goodbye, I know we will see each other again in another life. We will find each other again and maybe the stars will have changed, and we will not only love each other in that time but for all the times we had before.
— Nicholas Sparks

‘Cause I know how it hurts when you lose the one you wanted ‘cause he’s taken you for granted. And everything you had got destroyed.

I didn’t die and I aint complainin, I aint blamin you. I didn’t know that the words you said to me meant more to me than they ever could you. I didn’t lie and I aint sayin I told the whole truth. I didn’t know that this game we were playin even had a set of rules…
Modest Mouse

So baby,baby stay
Stay right where you are
I like it this way
It’s good for my heart
I haven’t felt like this
In God knows how long
I know everything’s gonna be okay
If you just stay gone
Jimmy Wayne

I still love you and I will forever
We can’t hide the truth
We know each other better
When we try to make it work
We both end up hurt
And it ain’t supposed to be that way
Jimmy Wayne

It’s like I love this pain a little too much, love my heart all busted up. Something ’bout her, we just don’t work but I can’t walk away. It’s like I love this pain.
Lady Antebellum

It’s a quarter after one. I’m a little drunk and I need you now. Said I wouldn’t call but I’ve lost all control and I need you now. And I don’t know how I can do without. I just need you now
Lady Antebellum
