"I got to have you for one night ... somewhere, I should be content with that. But I'm not. She gets to spend the rest of her life with you, and I got a few hours. Where is the fairness in that?" - JoAnne Golden

"Everyone says I'm growing up too fast. Can't hardly feel the things I'm running passed. Everything's such a blur, since you've walked away from her . . . I feel like I can't breathe. This pain's succumbing me. I try and walk away, only to get knocked back down. I'm up in the sky, only wanting to touch the ground." - JoAnne Golden

"I thought that I could reach out to him. Like, maybe, in some way, he could hear what I was thinking. But he just turned away. And he kissed her. And I've never been more hurt in my life." - JoAnne Golden

"I know you would never do anything to hurt me, and perhaps that's why I feel such guilt. Because I know your heart belongs to me, but mine belongs to someone else." - JoAnne Golden

"I don't know, for a while, I had this tiny smidge of hope that one day, we'd be together again. But, last night, when we talked...I knew. I just knew you were in love with her. The kind of love that stays all I'm left with is a broken heart and shattered hopes and dreams." - JoAnne Golden

"I still remember how it felt. Kissing him. It was as if we were the only two people in this world. My boyfriend seemed out of the picture. But then I woke up and realized that I can't escape. Not because I love him, but because I'm scared of what will happen if I don't settle." - JoAnne Golden

"Letting go of you was the hardest thing I've ever had to do." - Michelle

"Wind is like love. Sometimes it'll come on so fast, and hard, that it will blow you away. But at others, it will be a soft, gentle breeze just there to relax you." - Erin Michelle

"Sometimes I wonder if I just faked our whole relationship...if he ever really did love me....if I ever really did know the feeling of how it felt to be loved and to love....maybe I just made the whole thing out to be more than it was. Because he's with her now. He's been with her for 4 months. and my dreams and hopes of love are suddenly shattered....because I know now that when I call out his name at night....he's calling out hers....and there's nothing in the world that hurts more....than knowing the only man I've ever out there loving someone else." - JoAnne Golden

"I look at pictures of you two together -- you looked so happy, and I just want to know how you could say you never loved her to me when the look on your face proved I was just a stand-in." - JoAnne Golden

"I felt the goodbye when we hugged. The strength in his arms as if that was the last bit of him he had to give me. I realized as I was walking away that in holding on as tight as he did -- was really just him letting go." -Hollie Seals

"And I know I have him now, he's great -- but he's not you, he'll never be you. And I thought if I could just pretend I was over you.....I could handle it. But you know what? I can't." - JoAnne Golden

"So maybe things between us were too good, ya know? Maybe we reached the point where things couldn't get any they just had to get worse... and maybe that's why you left me for her. Maybe things between you guys were always rocky....maybe you liked it like that. Or maybe, maybe I just wasn't enough." - JoAnne Golden

"I love you, okay? Is that so bad? I love you and she doesn't- she never did. Yet, you love her and not me. What's wrong with this picture?" - Melissa Rokyta

"She's only 17. A young woman to the world but still a little girl at heart. She's stuck in the middle, trying to act her age and have fun at the same time. She's trying to achieve her goals but not get too stressed. She's trying to fall in love while trying to be independent at the same time. Learning to fly out into the world on her own while deep down inside she just wants her daddy's arms wrapped around her. She's trying to smile through it all, even through the pain. She's seen her friends and family get hurt and she's even seen some of them die but she keeps her faith in God. She can't wait to grow up but, in a way, she's already there. She's only 17; so young, but not." - Kels

"You knew you loved me the minute you laid eyes on me, that's what terrifies you so much, because now you're walking down that aisle with someone who doesn't even compare to who I am. Whose relationship with you doesn't even compare to what we were. Someone who you don't love. You can try and try to convince yourself you guys belong together, but I seen it in your eyes that night. I seen it in your eyes every night we were together. And I know you couldn't possibly have that with anyone else. Call me a dreamer, I don't care.... because I know the truth. You don't love her, the way you loved me." - JoAnne Golden

"He killed a part of me that I thought was impossible for anyone to get to. A place in my heart I never thought I'd surrender. But I gave in. I weakened myself with one stare into his eyes. Those eyes that used to only look at me. Now, are looking at her. And I lost the only bit of heart I had left. Now, I can truly say I've lost everything." - JoAnne Golden

"I'm not going to make the same mistake with you, that I made with him." - Justine

"Don't ya hate it when you like a guy and all your friends tell you he's not good enough and you can do so much better? Don't they understand that in your mind he's the best and no one could ever be better?" - Kels

"That night didn't mean anything to you. You're still with her. And it's never going to change. You love her. And I knew you did...yet, I still surrendered myself to your embrace. Devouring every word you said....believing you still loved me, and you regretted being with her. But, it's not true. Because, things haven't changed like you promised. It didn't go from her to me. You stayed with her, and, even though you'll never admit it -- you want to. I'm not even an obstacle. You've broken every promise you've ever made me....why did I think this time would be any different? Well, I'll do you a favor... I'll let you go so you can be with her. Don't even worry about me. I was just good for that one night." - JoAnne Golden
