You say you care.
Where are you?

You touch me.
And say you don't mean to lead me on.

You listen to me.
Why?  If you don't want me.

When I tell you I hurt,
you hold me.

You tell me you don't want anything,
and then you kiss me.

I let you go,
and you call me.

You look in my eyes,
and I see tenderness.

You say, if it's meant to be,
it will be.

I try to understand,
but I don't.

Please, just let me go...

Truly it is a hard thing to cope with.  I understand both sides of this struggle.  I met a young lady last summer that I really liked, at first.  We enjoyed one another's company dearly.  Held each other and danced and cuddled.  Then one day I realized that she just wasn't going to be able to go where I am going in life.  It was hard, b/c my feelings changed for her, but I still desired
to be with her.  To hold her hand and to touch her.  I just didn't want that long term committment.  The hardest thing was just ending it.  I did though.  I mean we are still friends, but it is still hard sometimes, b/c I don't want to say anything to lead her on or make her think that I want something more.  Truly you will be in my prayers.  I hope this all works out well.

Very sad, but sometimes all there is to do is let go and go on! Nicely said, Tulip!

Jfreak,
It is very hard.  It would be much easier if it just ended, but it doesn't.  I just don't understand the "hanging on" thing that's happening.  In my eyes, either it is, or it isn't, not somewhere in between.  
Me2,
Yes, I am aware, as much as I don't want to be.
Denise,
Thank you.  I AM trying to let go.  It's hard, but I know I have to!

Tulip, after all the games played on me, I find the direct approach works. Find out how he's feeling, tell him what you are feeling and go from there. One way or the other, you'll know, then you can go from there. I hope it works out for you! By the way, great poem! -SEA

Very nice tulip.  The line that always works for me is "will you just leave me alone" and I say it with lots of emotion.  And they do leave me "alone".   Now all that is left is the sadness and the loneliness.  So yes, its a hard but sometimes necessary road.  New opportunities always come along.  James

You did a good job of putting all the emotions we feel in times like this..

Liz, James, Sea, & Poet,
Thanks for your replies!  Yes, it is confusing and heartbreaking too!  I'm trying to move on, but it's very hard when you do actually care about the other person!

WOW ANOTHER PERSON TELLING MY STORY! I'M IN LOVE WITH A GUY. WE HAVE HAD A VERY RUFF PAST. WE WERE FRIENDS AND THEN I BECAME HIS "SECRET". I LET IT SLIP OUT AND WITH THAT IT WAS OVER AND WITH A QUICKNESS WE WERE ENEMIES. HE KNEW THAT I STILL LOVED HIM THOUGH AND WHEN HE BROKE UP WITH HIS GIRLFRIEND HE CAME TO ME AND OF COURSE I FELL FOR IT ( NOT KNOWING IT WAS A GAME TO GET BACK AT ME)AND THAT HE WAS ACTUALLY WITH WHAT I THOUGHT WAS MY "FRIEND" (SHE WAS IN ON THE GAME) WELL THE GAME  ENDED BUT  OUR LOVE FOR EACH OTHER HASNT. ONCE AGAIN IM HIS "SECRET"  HE CLAIMS TO LOVE ME MORE THEN N E THING BUT AT THE SAME TIME HE WONT LEAVE HIS GIRLFRIEND BECAUSE " HE DOESNT WANT TO HURT HER". HES GOING TO VISIT HER IN MARCH AND ITS ABOUT KILLIN ME. I WISH I COULD LET GO BUT I CANT DO IT IVE ALREADY TRIED. I LOVE HIM TO MUCH TO JUST GIVE HIM UP ...IF HE WOULD GIVE ME UP IT WOULD HURT A LOT BUT I THINK IT WOULD BE EASIER 4 ALL INVOLVED.I UNDERSTAND HOW HARD THIS IS 4 U PEOPLE GIVE YOU THERE ADVICE BUT REALLY IT DONT HELP BECAUSE YOU KNOW WHAT IT IS YOU SHOULD DO ITS JUST THE DOING IT THAT IS SO HARD AND NO ONE BUT U CAN DO THAT. GOOD LUCK GIRL I FEEL YOU ON THIS ONE A LOT

I felt like this was me talking...

It's hard loving someone who plays along the edges of commitment...

The hardest part is figuring out what hurts less...staying...or leaving...

Very nice... )

just,
I'm sorry for what you're going through.  It sounds miserable.  
Breathe,
If the commitment has been made, it would be black and white, and a little more simple.  I agree, figuring out which hurts less is key here.  It hit me hard when I read that.  Thank you!
Hoot,
Thanks for the response!
