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

Our relationship was a good one, a little rocky, but alright. We had a lot of love, so I thought. He told me he would love me forever and I believed him. My parents did not allow us together. If I was talking to him and they knew, I would be grounded.

On my 15th birthday I lied about my destination and went to be with him. My cousin was dating his brother, so it was easy access. But my older sister showed up there at 12:30 at night, yelling at me to get into the car with her. I hesitated at first, then kissed my boyfriend good-bye. When I got home I was grounded. I had made varsity cheerleader my freshman year and my parents pulled me out. I was so mad, but still talked to him secretly.

I went away to Tennessee for my 16th birthday. A week after I came back, I found out he had cheated on me. I was crushed. I had said I would never forgive him if he ever did that, but when you are in love, everything changes. So I forgave him. He told me I gave him mixed signals and he was sorry and it wouldn’t happen again.

The turning point was in my heart. I decided that we really needed to let go for both of our sakes. At that time, he wasn't ready to be faithful and I wasn't going to wait around for him to be a man. So I ended it with a mix up. There is a LovePoetry poem called I love you and goodbye by Megan Renee Gandee. It helped me so much and I read that almost every day.

I still thought about him and missed him all the time, even to this day. He was my first love. I do date but haven't let anyone close to my heart. I don't want to be hurt by anyone else if I have anything to do with it.

I am all about friends and school now. I have a lot of fun, without worries. I regret ever being friends with the girlfriend he is with now, because we were supposed to be friends. But I learn new things every day. I hope she reads this one day. She knows who she is.

I have advice for the girls who are going through a relationship by themselves. It isn't fun, is it? It hurts a lot and you blame it on yourself, but it is okay. The only way it is your fault is if it happens more than once.
