"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

"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

"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

"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

"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've always been a big believer in fate; always knew what one sign meant. but, I'm with him now. And even though, if it would have been with ANYONE ELSE, I would have just known that it was a sign we were meant to be together....I can't think that with him. I mean, I love him." - 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

"You know what I think hurts the most? The feeling of being replaced. It's like no matter what you did, it wasn't enough. And no matter what you do to try and capture their heart again, doesn't seem to work. And you're suddenly left thinking that you'll never be enough. And a sudden sadness captures your heart that never really leaves." - JoAnne Golden

"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

"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

"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

"I'm not going to say it doesn't hurt me to see you with her -- to know I've been replaced.... but I will say, I've gotten better at accepting it. It doesn't hurt as much as it used to. I think it's because I've realized -- she's not who I am. And she doesn't compare. And I know... somewhere down the road, you'll realize that, too." - JoAnne Golden

"I love you still, you know that. But my heart's been shattered. And every piece of it was clinging to its ground when you walked out of my life. But now, I've finally got it all together again. And a piece of it will always belong to you, but now it belongs to another person. Someone true and trustworthy. Someone you weren't." - JoAnne Golden

"i hated her for the longest time, and to be honest, a part of me still does, but I've gotten better. I still cringe at the sight of you two together -- but i'm happy we're over. I wouldn't have wanted to find out i wasn't good enough for you any later on." - JoAnne Golden

"it was never about me, was it? it was about her since day one. finding her, kissing her -- loving her. i was just a stand-in until she came along." - JoAnne Golden

"I refused to let her have you. I tried everything in my power to get you back in my arms. But it just wasn't enough to pull you away from hers." - JoAnne Golden

"I'm giving up a guy who I was convinced was perfect for me, for someone who my heart knows, really is." - JoAnne Golden

"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
