for the words that have never been spoken.
for the promises that you have always broken.
for the kisses that took my breath from me.
for the 'youre gonna love me'.
for the tears that flowed.
for the sleepless hours.
for the break we have taken.
for the start that may never begin.
for the heart that keeps breaking.
for the strength that i have not showed.
for the ups and downs.
for the eleventh of june.
for the first of october.

this is so simple yet so deep. i've experienced this personally. even though he broke your heart, you love him so much that you can't even describe it to yourself anymore. you love him so much that even when he hurts you more than anyone ever has before, you still love them. this is great. thanks for sharing
