First Hancock Reference!
Your attempt to compare our relationship to Will Smith and Charlize Theron in Hancock is ridiculous. Giving into our overwhelming urge to be together again won’t kill anyone or bring cities to ruin.
I sometimes think about you more times in a day than I do about myself. Or about my boyfriend.
I looked forward to your Mom teaching our children about flowers and God and nature.
I can believe we were that young. I can’t believe we were so gloriously stupid.
He gives me everything I need, but he’ll never be everything I want.
You are so beautiful, and there’s nothing I can do about it.
The scariest part of never resolving this tension between us is the possibility that it’s all in my head.
You leaving turned me into the person we both wanted me to be.
Sickens, I Say
Everything about your life with him sickens me.
Thank you for not giving me a second chance.
No Castles in the Sand
I knew we were doomed when you refused to help me build a sandcastle.
If there wasn’t a picture of you in my yearbook, it’d be hard to believe you ever existed.
You’re gone now and all I get to stare at is your name in my chat list, hoping that a green dot will show up next to it.
I’m glad you apologized for all your lies. But I liked it all so much better before I knew they were lies.
I thought I had deleted you from my life, but we have the same friends and they retweet, reblog and tag you back in it.
Angrier than the Birds
I get upset when I think of you playing Angry Birds on her iPad, and not mine.
You made me act and feel more bipolar than I’ve ever been known to be.
I’ve given every person I’ve dated since you a nickname.
You were so much prettier when we were together.
Every morning I look forward to your texts saying you’re sorry.
I still hear you in snare drums.
All I could think about was that seal we buried on the beach.
Not in Anyone Else
It took me 10 years to stop looking for you in others.
Do you think about me as much as I think about you?
Less Easy Stuff
Am I supposed to stay with him because this is an easy life and I have a lot of stuff? I want less easy, less stuff and much more you.
So Where Are You?
People still ask me where you are. It kills me that I no longer know.
Thank God we didn’t have any weed that night.
I’ve always known what your answer would be. But hope can be a motivating and self-destructive thing.
Wondering about Wondering
Wonder if I will always wonder what might have been.
I guess I mistook your Southern charm for some kind of affection.
It's Never the Hat
I’m sure you see lots of photos of where I’m wearing the hat you made me. It doesn’t mean anything. The hat didn’t break my heart.
I finally had a bright idea and you snatched it from my head and made it happen.
Did you have that alternate ending up your sleeve the whole time?
More and more these days I find myself in these ‘moods’ where I want you and no one else.
Miss You Playlist
I made an “I miss you” playlist. I don’t listen to it all that often, but I’m never going to delete it.
I don’t know if the ache in my heart this morning is you, or the 32 oz of coffee I need to get out of bed.
Don't Always Be There
I know I promised to always be there for you, but when you call to complain about the girl you left me for, I do die a bit inside.
If feelings were material things, mine would be in serious breach of the laws of quantum mechanics. Two of them for you are occupying the same space at the same time, and it feels like total annihilation.
More More Tears
I cry over you the most, but you deserve my tears the least.
Dear Old Abyss
I fell into you like falling into an abyss. That depression was contagious.
I bite my lip every time I feel like kissing you.
Stop being so damn cute!
We were the best. You were the best. I was the best. It was the best!
Over the Years
I have thought of you over the years. Wondered who you married. Wondered about your career, kids, house, and if you too had a puppy.
Seeing a Stranger
After a certain amount of time, I thought I’d look at you and finally feel like you were mine. But all I saw was a stranger until the very end.
We bonded over video games. I just didn’t realize that that would be the only thing we had in common.
That Would Be Good
One of the first things you told me was how we needed a place that only we knew about, somewhere we could forget everyone else. I still walk by places and think: that would be good.
Seeing that you had to get rid of that brand new Camaro when she had the baby brought me relief. At least now I’m not the only one who lost my dream.
Back of the Jeep
I’ll never forget that moment in the back of your Jeep when I thought I felt alive for the first time. Maybe it was just lust, but thank you anyway.
I remember the way you used Febreze after fencing, because you thought it was easier than washing your equipment.
