I suffer from insomnia, so I find the perfect time to write in the early hours of the morning because my thoughts keep me awake. I'm going through a turmoil with the person I thought was my
significant other. It's a rollercoaster of emotions.


chapter 1

Another sleepless night. I feel so overwhelmed with all these thoughts crowding my mind. I miss him, you know. I really don’t understand this whole “break” thing. I’ve never had someone tell me they want a break. It’s either they cheat and we break up, or we just stop talking period. Do you know how hard it is to not scroll down my contact list and text him? He asked if we could carry on talking but I just found that weird. I told him if he’s taking a break from this relationship, then he’s taking a break from me. Not that that stopped him from texting me a couple of times after that. Sometimes I have this ‘I don’t care’ attitude, and other times I feel like breaking down. Well I wouldn’t do that. Why would I want a guy to have so much leverage over me? I’m stronger than that. Well at least that’s what I tell myself. I’m hopeful that things will get better, but I’m just not sure if it will ever be the same. I love him, you know. Unfortunately love is not always the answer, especially if it’s not reciprocated. I pray for better days, I really do. I just don’t know if I’ll agree to get back with him when the time comes, if it ever comes. I don’t think I can survive heartbreak from him. I hope he’s okay, and I hope he knows how much I love him even though I don’t tell him or show him as much as he’d love me to. I know everything will work out for the best but it’s scary not knowing what the best is. Maybe what I want is not necessarily the best but I’m hopeful.
