If you think of the moon as already used, it's not as difficult to take in, because then it's just like you,Traveled the world like you,Seen the globe like you,But, it's still bright.
Ahmed Mostafa
You're like a band-aid that is slowly ripping off, and I'm still wounded!
Alaric Hutchinson
Love is not the answer, peace is. Throughout my whole life I have experienced and seen others use love as a reason to treat people with unkindness by being controlling, jealous, shouting in anger, and projecting guilt and shame. If you love someone but there is not peace in your heart when you think of that person then your work is not done. Do not stop at love, continue all the way towards the freedom of inner peace. Love starts when peace begins. Without peace love is simply a mask for our insecurity, judgment, and egoic attachments.
Alaric Hutchinson
Pain is inevitable, yet suffering is optional. It is our heart connections that make all the difference. When we experience mental, physical, emotional, or spiritual pain

Alfa H
She's fire...but she will not burn you. She knows all too well how it feels to live with ashes.
Alfa H
Our spirits are connected honey. Wrapped in firsts of gnarled heartache. But I promise not to let go if you don't.
Alice Walker
When I no longer have your heartI will not request your bodyyour presenceor even your polite conversation.I will go away to a far countryseparated from you by the sea
Amy Jo Cousins
You're the optimist all the way through, pretending to be a pessimist on the inside, because you can act like it hurts less if you say you knew all along it was going to go down like that.
Anthony Liccione
I can have patience for anything, but it's waiting for love, that kills me a little each day.
Anthony T. Hincks
Trust undone will lead to heartache and pain. So I ask you to be honest and truthful in your love for me.
April Mae Monterrosa
The more you try to protect yourself from love, the more pain you bring to yourself and those that love you
Arthur Golden
The world was simply too cruel; how could I survive?
Ava
my feelings tend to last longerthan my lovers doand it's made a monsterout of my heart.
Ava
i know it all ends the same, but i was interested in seeing how you would break my heart.
Ayushee Ghoshal
What no one ever told me was that sometimes 'time' only adds layers to the wounds and if you scratch off the dust years later, you will still find him in your blood and flesh, residing in a vacant house that you thought had no tenants. Time. They never said that time only teaches us regrets.
B.A. Paris
I cry even harder, thinking of how it could have been, of how I thought it would be. For the first time, I want to give up, to die, because suddenly everything is too much and there is no solution in sight.
Becca Fitzpatrick
I missed you, Angel. Not one day went by that I didn't feel you missing from my life. You haunted me to the point that I began to believe Hank had gone back on his oath and killed you. I couldn't escape you and I didn't want to. You tortured me, but it was better than losing you.
C. Elizabeth
Though sorrow may impede my heart,It is of great love to have known you.
C. Elizabeth
Years of love, followed by heartache. Those are the years that define me.Those are the years that know
C. Elizabeth
A dream you once were,A dream of all my realities,A dream I can no long strive forIn the wake of my manly betayals
C.J. Carlyon
Lips that have tasted the salt of tears always give the sweetest kiss.
Carl White
You can only trust your emotions as you can lie to yourself with your brain but not your heart.
Carlos Wallace
Never let fear of short term heartache interfere with your long term happiness.
Caroline George
If I seem to not want to be with him now, it's only because love scares me too, more than manipulation, because love is a choice I make and not something forced upon me. I trust him, but I don't trust myself. I must have time to trust myself so I can completely love him.He's the grenade. I'm the grenade. We'll blow each other to pieces… Together.
Cass van Krah
Your world is just as empty as your heart!
Cassandra Clare
Don't be with him, don't want him, don't go with him. Be with me. Want me. Stay with me.I don't know how to be without you.
Chloe Caldwell
I feel drawn to the word unmoored during this time. I look it up a few times a week. I stare at the definition on my computer screen. I love the example sentence Wikipedia uses, which says, Left unmoored, the boat gradually drifts out to sea. It pops into my head when I wake in the mornings, while I walk the streets, wait for the bus, the train, get into cabs, eat lunch alone, and browse the shelves at the library.
Chloe Caldwell
I become familiar with cold hard grounds. On a Friday night, I drink three too many glasses of wine and I call Finn. She makes no black humor jokes. It is not an erotic mess anymore, like Sabine once told me it was. The conflict and torture is not a sign of intelligence anymore, as Finn once told me it was. It is ugly. We are exhausted. Gutted. You're too hard! she yells at me. Be soft, she orders. I'm confused, I tell her. I don't know what to grieve. I can't be in a relationship with anyone, she says, so if you have to grieve something, grieve that. She says this strongly. She means it. When we get off the phone I am in fetal position on the bathroom floor, holding my heart, while it literally aches.
Chris Fabry
Because I don't think God trusts just anybody with so much heartache. The world has not yet seen what God can do with a man who gives both halves of a broken heart to him. And I don't doubt that a man like that can change the world...or at least a little part of it.
Criss Jami
Jealousy from a love affair is something even God can admit.
Criss Jami
Anger's like a battery that leaks acid right out of meAnd it starts from the heart 'til it reaches my outer me
Criss Jami
Perhaps not everything happens for a reason. That is, until you make it so; because for everything there is a season, which can, in fact, become beautiful.
Crystal Woods
I know I'm not going to be in your head all the time. But once you know me, I'll be forever in your heart. 
D.S. Wrights
How can the most cruel and despicable create something as breathtaking beautiful as this?
Deborah J Johnson
Loving unconditionally, was love so sublime.Lost without you now, I thought we'd have more time.
Dennis Lehane
One that society can't forgive, but I can.
Dodie Smith
It isn't a bit of use my pretending I'm not crying, because I am... Pause to mop up. Better now.Perhaps it would really be rather dull to be married and settled for life. Liar! It would be heaven.
Dorothy Koomson
The thing I am most afraid of is love. When you say you love someone you are giving them license to hurt you.
Dorothy Koomson
Far too many people opened their hearts and lives at the drop of a hat. Why give someone that power over you? Why endow them with the ability to hurt you that much? Let someone in and you were asking for an emotional kicking some day.
E.A. Bucchianeri
... how terrible is the pain of the mind and heart when the freedom of mankind is suppressed!
Edgar Allan Poe
From childhood's hour I have not been. As others were, I have not seen. As others saw, I could not awaken. My heart to joy at the same tone. And all I loved, I loved alone.
Elizabeth Brooks
Everything is all right,When you're here,When you're right next to me,When my hand is in yours,Don't leave me,Don't leave me empty handed.
Elizabeth Gilbert
This is a good sign, having a broken heart. It means we have tried for something.
Emily Brontë
Because misery, and degradation, and death, and nothing that God or Satan could inflict would have parted us, you, of your own will did it. I have no broken your heart - you have broken it; and in breaking it, you have broken mine. So much the worse for me that I am strong.
Eric Arvin
He faced Doug. His eyes were wet. I am not one of your tricks, Douglas.Of course, you're not.That's what I feel like tonight, seeing you in there with all those bodies. One of a thousand nights. One of a thousand fucks. And fuck you for making me feel this way. And fuck you again for making me say fuck in this beautiful place.
Glenn Pemberton
We live in a world that is beyond our control, and life is in a constant flux of change. So we have a decision to make: keep trying to control a storm that is not going to go away or start learning how to live within the rain.
Heidi Priebe
At the end of your life, go out with a bruised-up, worn out heart that gave too much and loved too strongly and felt too fiercely.
J. California Cooper
Love entered in my heart one dayA sad, unwelcome guest.But when it begged that it might stayI let it stay and restIt broke my nights with sorrowingIt filled my heart with fearsAnd, when my soul was prone to sing,It filled my eyes with tears.But...now that it has gone its way,I miss the dear ole pain.And, sometimes, in the night I prayThat Love might come again.
J.B.
As she looks through the window; while seeing him give her his world, tears rolled down her cheeks as she remembers the world she once had.
J.S.B. Morse
A broken heart is just the growing pains necessary so that you can love more completely when the real thing comes along.
Jayne Higgins
You see that girl, she looks so happy right? But inside she's dying. She's hurt and tired. Tired of all the drama, tired of not being good enough, tired of life. But she doesn't want to look dramatic, weak or attention seeking so she keeps it all inside. Act's like everything's perfect but she cries at night, boy does she cry at night, so that everybody thinks she is the happiest person they know, that she has no problems and her life is perfect. Little do they know.
Jeanette Winterson
Sometimes I think of you and I feel giddy. Memory makes me lightheaded, drunk on champagne. All the things we did. And if anyone has said this was the price I would have agreed to pay it. That surprises me; that with the hurt and the mess comes a shift of recognition. It was worth it. Love is worth it.
Jenim Dibie
My life is a room filled with love letters and goodbye notes.
Jennifer Crusie
Heartache often drives us to consume things we wouldn't otherwise, such as an entire pint of Caramel Pecan Perfection high-fat ice cream, covered in ganache, the crack cocaine of frozed dairy. Twelve hundred calories per pint, six hundred and eighty of which are fat calories, but is only dulls the pain for the moment, there's that carb fog while you're standing at the sink shoving it in your face, and then it's over and you feel...used. Like a cheap pickup the Dove people seduced and abandoned in your kitchen, leaving you with sticky hands and an empty cup and a still-broken heart, except now you're mad at Dove, too.
Jennifer Elisabeth
My soul hurts.
Jenny Rosen
She wasn't his girlfriend. She was his bubblegum girl--only fun until she lost her flavor.
Jess Rothenberg
You can obsess and obsess over how things ended
Jocelyn Soriano
It is our wounds that create in us a desire to reach for miracles. The fulfillment of such miracles depends on whether we let our wounds pull us down or lift us up towards our dreams.
Jocelyn Soriano
To be rejected by someone doesn't mean you should also reject yourself or that you should think of yourself as a lesser person. It doesn't mean that nobody will ever love you anymore. Remember that only ONE person has rejected you at the moment, and it only hurt so much because to you, that person's opinion symbolized the opinion of the whole world, of God.
Jocelyn Soriano
Yes, I understand why things had to happen this way. I understand his reason for causing me pain. But mere understanding does not chase away the hurt. It does not call upon the sun when dark clouds have loomed over me. Let the rain come then if it must come! And let it wash away the dust that hurt my eyes!
John Maiorana (oohGiovanni)
True love will break you, it devotes to break your beat up, broken heart awaiting to repair and align you to your true purpose.
Joseph Conrad
Thus ended the first and adventurous part of his existence. What followed was so different that, but for the reality of sorrow which remained with him, this strange part must have resembled a dream.
Julie de Lespinasse
You know that when I hate you, it is because I love you to a point of passion that unhinges my soul.
Kandi Steiner
Uncomplicate it. Don't make excuses. Some of life's biggest heartaches come from missed opportunities and lame excuses. Don't miss out on what could be the best chapter in your life because you're too busy rereading the last one.
Karen Quan
I wear a necklace of hope with pearly beads. When I met you, it broke, and the beads spilled all over the floor, into the gutters.
Karen Quan
I have always wanted to give you the world, so I started giving you pieces of the oceans that kept us apart.
Karon Waddell
People maybe smiling but look to the eyes because they can't hide the sorrow, pain, and heartache they're trying to hide behind their smile.
Kate Chisman
We ruined each other by being together. We destroyed each other's dreams.
Kellie Elmore
...what happens when you returnand find nothingbut a hollowed shell,shingles and floor,walls and echoesand the light that lead you herehas now burned outand the ones who built ithave traveled afarand you cant go to them,no matter what shoes you wear.
Ken Poirot
The worst feelings are the warm, anxious burning that portends your heart breaking followed by the wave of numbness that asphyxiates your soul.
Kilroy J. Oldster
A person whom writes begins by putting down what they know about loneliness, shame, love, and heartache. In writing fully, they discover many other aspects of themselves that they never suspected including doubts, beliefs, ironies, and farcicalities.
Kim Sowol
When you leave,weary of me,without a word I shall gently let you go.
Laarni Venus Marie
Somewhere, somehow, maybe I can find someone who can make my heart beat again.. For everyday that I pine for your love, and for every single time you reject me, I start to die deep inside.. That throbbing pain has slowly turned into numbing emptiness..
Lauren Conrad
Don't cry over someone who wouldn't cry over you.
Libba Bray
I've never been in love. I will die without knowing what it feels like to need to see one person's face when you go to sleep at night, to crave seeing it when you wake up. I wish I knew.
Louie Giglio
There is no cancer, no sickness, no sin, no reversal of fortunes, no curse, no heartache - nothing - that's greater than Jesus. Jesus heals. Jesus restores. Jesus brings life.
Marilynne Robinson
She knew that was not an honest prayer, and she did not linger over it. The right prayer would have been, Lord . . . I am miserable and bitter at heart, and old fears are rising up in me so that everything I do makes everything worse.
Marinela Reka
Helping other people can be a cure not just for those who are in need, but for your soul as well.
Marlen Komar
If you stand right at the edge of the night sky, some place where one o'clock leaves to meet two, the breeze will carry your words up to the stars. And they'll swallow your secrets until its time to hand them over to the truths in the sky- the ones that draw maps in the black. They carve their answers into the backs of my hands, the grooves of the words running deep in my palms.
Marlen Komar
And me, standing under the splintered night, catching fractured glimpses into the black behind the black, hearing the prayers of stars, the angry whispers of the dark summer night.Its voice cracks,on your name.My eyes close,on your name.
Martina Boone
Love doesn't come with an on-off switch. It's made of too many threads of memory and hope and heartache that weave themselves into the very core of who you are.
Mary Kate
The beauty of life isn't the perfectioned moments or storybook endings; the beauty of life is when you fall flat on your face, the Lord picks you up, then you look around and cheer, after all, a merry heart is the medicine!
Maya Angelou
I answer the heroic question, 'Death, where is thy sting?' with 'It is in my heart and mind and memories.
Melita Tessy
I knew that the pain I felt now was here to stay. In many forms. Through many nights.
Melita Tessy
I don't know about homeless, but I'm never going to let you be hopeless. Or loveless. To be heartless however, well, that is your choice to make.
Michael Cunningham
He needs a looser association. He needs something that implies a man who wants the ice shard to remain in his chest, who's learned to love the sensation of being pierced.
Mika Yamamori
The thing that is changing...Is it my surroundings, or myself?
Mika Yamamori
A love where no one gets hurt doesn't exist.
Mika Yamamori
The wounds from that time have already become scabs.
Mokokoma Mokhonoana
It is usually unbearably painful to read a book by an author who knows way less than you do, unless the book is a novel.
Mokokoma Mokhonoana
We are sometimes dragged into a pit of unhappiness by someone else's opinion that we do not look happy.
Munia Khan

N.R. Walker
Maybe that's what I needed. Another tattoo. Some pain on the outside to ease the pain on the inside.

Miracle: to love more with an irreparable heartache
Nikita Gill
Some girls are full of heartache and poetry and those are the kind of girls who try to save wolves instead of running away from them.
Nomzamo Nhlumayo
I trusted you with my scarsBut now I'm bleedingSaid I was your moon and you were the starsYou're so deceivingI trusted you with my scarsBut now I'm bleedingThe wound is deep Blood is seeping
Piper Payne
A disastrous flaw in our design is that the heart always defies the brain.
Piper Payne
Love alone means nothing unless you have a tortured heart for it to soothe.
Piper Payne
Her silence should be feared more than her words.
Piper Payne
He knows her like man knows earth, touching the surface but unaware of her depth.
Rachel Higginson
And you're right, I do love you Eden. I will follow you into eternity, or until after this weekend when we all die gruesome, painful deaths... But with every breath I have left, I will use it to love you. Because, Eden, I want this... You; I want you more than life, more than anything. There was a time when I didn't think I was strong enough to face you again, or what is between us. I was too afraid of the heartache, of being shattered again. But now, it doesn't matter, nothing matters except you. I will take an eternity of hardship, of war or fighting my father, or anything, just to hold your love again. You are everything to me, my sun, my moon, the air I breathe. Nothing exists accept you. I love you.
Radhika Mundra
To ease a grieving heart is the world's greatest pleasure, more so, when the heart is yours.
Robin Brande
Is it just me, or is that guy the coolest boyfriend ever invented? It's not just you. And there was that same dull pain-the one I get sometimes when I see the two of them together and realize I'll never have that. I gave Amanda a smile. He's great. I'm really happy for you. And that was a hundred percent true. But it didn't make it hurt any less.
Roxanna Aliba Kazibwe
Her eyes stung from crying for so long and having some tears dry on them. Her body was weak from the exercise but she did not feel better. While she was crying she had wanted someone, anyone to come and hold her. She had crawled into her closet, hoisted herself up onto the shelf that had duvets and bedsheets and curled herself among those. Now she knew that no hug could erase her pain, no sort of embrace could bind up her heart. She needed a new heart it seemed, her old heart was beyond repair.
RSCruz
Be free to do what you want to... before the time is through.
Santosh Kalwar
Given a choice between goose egg and heartache, I would choose heartache.
Seja Majeed
For years I've been searching for a homeland, finally I found it in you..
Shannon L. Alder
In the end, you will not see the physical beauty in others that caught your eye, but the fire that burned within them. This kind of beauty is the bonfire you had to attend.
Sharon Salzberg
The heart is a generous muscle.
Sherman Alexie
How much do we remember of what hurts us most? I've been thinking about pain, how each of us constructs our past to justify what we feel now. How each successive pain distorts the preceding.
Simi Sunny
We're both in a rut. And when two people have the different open wounds, they can relate and try to heal each other. Maybe it'll be the same for Kayla and me. It'll be a long a run, but we might as well try.
Solange nicole
Sometimes... Reason and Love are met with a violent ignorance that even what's right gets lost. Our heart bleeds, but when does the blood shed end and the healing begin?
Susan Samaroo
Time stops for no one, and if we allow ourselves to focus on the negative we might miss out on some really amazing things that life has to offer. We can't go back to the past, we can only take the lessons that we have learned and the experiences that we have gained from it and move on. It is because of the heartaches, as well as the hardships, that in the end help to make us a stronger person.
Suzanne Elizabeth Phillips
Growing up seems easier for men, maybe because their rites of passage are clearer. They perform acts of bravery on the battlefield or show they're men through physical labor or by making money. For women, it's more confusing. We have no rites of passage. Do we become women when a man first makes love to us? If so, why do we refer to it as a loss of virginity? Doesn't the word 'loss' imply that we are better off before? I abhor the idea that we become women only through the physical act of a man. No, I think we become women when we learn what is important in our lives, when we learn to give and to take with a loving heart.
Suzy Kassem
MOTHER IS WATERI wish I couldShower your head with flowersAnd anoint your feet with my tears,For I know I have caused youSo much heartache, frustration and despair
Tania De Rozario
I am a wall. I am a wall. I am a wall. I am a giant and I tower above you. I am a giant and I can't hear your voice. There is familiarity in this. I spent years like this growing up, my mother hovering over my every move, me responding monosyllabically, face blank, voice blank, heart blank. It is a coping mechanism and it is easy, if you are able to block out false promises of love with the understanding of what love has become.
Taylor Swift
As much as I would really like to have saved myself heartache, embarrassment or gossip, I also know that my biggest mistakes have turned into my best lessons. And sometimes my greatest career triumphs. If my life had been turbulence-free, maybe my music would be beige, maybe the stadiums wouldn't be full and the mantle would be a little more empty.
TemitOpe Ibrahim
When you can share the lessons you learnt through tears and heartache and others find life in it and are better off for it, then beauty has come out of those ashes.
Tessa Clare
I think there's a point in everyone's life where they realize that despite their best efforts, they have no choice but to surrender. That carrying on will only bring them more pain or heartache. I don't think there's any way that we can avoid these moments. But I just want you to know that I'm not quite there yet.
Trevor Driggers
We declared war on one another's heart. And once the bombs dropped, & wars of words began, all that was left were the ruins of what was once everything. Something once so beautiful, that even those dull ruins held it's own tragic beauty all their own.
V.S. Carnes
By now, she was far from the scorch of these sands. After the ransom deal, she would be safely married in England. To Ashton. And Caine, who had hurt her far more than anything Abdullah had planned for her with that long, curved dagger, deserved no better than this torment of knowing it.
V.S. Carnes
Better this way, what remained of his battered sensibilities told him. He was no good for her, anyway. She didn't understand him. She didn't understand that he was cursed. And, selfish as he was, he'd rather she hate him than he hate himself any more than he was already going to. Any more than he already did.
V.S. Carnes
Caine might have smiled at her, had his heart not been breaking to smithereens inside of him.
Veronica Rossi
He'd pushed it back, where he'd kept the thought for weeks, but it wouldn't stay. Wouldn't stop. Wouldn't let him go.
