All is fair in love and war, so the poets say, but it does not truly sympathize with the pain one can experience when one years for a lost love. People sing songs, write epics, and do all sorts of stunts to get that person back in their lives. I want you quotes are here to provide you inspiration in showing that special someone your most intimate feelings. Sometimes it’s desperate, but that’s the beauty of it. A haunting sort of need when you look next to you and find your bed empty of that one person who for a time made your heart and soul whole.
It is incredibly brave (and some would say stupid) for you to lay down all your cards on the table, bare that beating heart out, and say to the person that you want him or her back. To help you find your courage, and if words are too hard to say, here are some helpful I want you quotes that will not only soothe you, but possibly help you get the one you love back into your arms and in your life.
Letting someone you love go is like exhaling your soul, and hope becomes the poison you are left to breathe in.
The heart never rests, never stops aching, when the anchor of its love is lost.
Losing you is seeing that precious jewel fall from a finger into the sea, forever carried away by the tide.
I know you will never return, but every day I light a candle upon my window, hoping it will guide you back.
I want you to fill me, be inside me, to know that you and nothing else, is in the center of my heart.
I watch you pass by me in the street, and I cry as if I were invisible; your eyes cannot see me anymore.
I walk the empty rooms in the day, straining against the silence to hear a hind of your laughter.
In the fourteen months a heart can heal from breaking, but I might die of sadness before then.
To know that you have found and been with that one great love is enough, for life lived is then complete.
I only hope that in the dark of night in a thousand million days from now, beneath the starry stars, you will think of coming back to me.
My mind tries to forget but my body remembers your touch, the feel of your warmth, the scent of your hair, the smell of your breath, and I weep as it aches in longing.
Our love is like a broken string, frayed at the middle from years of wear to the point of breaking offering the pain of hoping it can be tied back together again.
I’d rather fight at with you over breakfast, ignore you over lunch, greet you with a cold hello at dinner, make love passionately in the night, kiss you sweet good mornings in the dawn, and spend the rest of my life with you.
Of all the happy mistakes I’ve made, it was to fall in love with you. And now that I’m caught up in this mess, I refuse to be in it by myself so you’re going to be with me, whether we like it or not and see the very end.
I think I have found my true love, who I want to kill each day and caress each night from the bottom of my heart.

I thought I would die when you said goodbye, but the cruel hope of thinking you’ll be back has left me in a half-life of loneliness.
I’ve watched all the movies you loved. I listened to all the music you loved. I ordered all the food you loved. I do all this so I have all that you love you would love me again.
I’m sorry about all the phone calls I never made, the occasions I’ve missed, and the moments I let you down. As far as second chances go, I don’t deserve it, but I still beg—forgive me.
Your heart was in my hands and I let it fall.
I could stay in hell for all eternity and endure it if only I could see your face smiling in heaven.
We both called each other names and made each other cry in vain, but all I want to call you now is sweetheart and wipe the tears from your eyes. Hold you close to me for all eternity.

If God offered to give me my soul mate, I’d just tell Him I’d rather have you back instead.
I am desert without you. I am dry and barren with the wind blowing me directionless like the dusty sand yellow and hot beneath the sun. Be the rain that makes my soul blossom again, please return to me.
I have felt it all. Every pain and hurt that the world challenged me with, I held at bay, but I only broke when you left me.
Real strength is seeing you dance with another and stand there without dissolving in to a pile of tears.
Want me. Need me. Long for me. I cannot stand feeling all this misery when you do not.
I always wonder if you think of me. I hope you do. I hope you taste my lips when you drink coffee. I hope you hear my voice when you listen to jazz. I hope you smell me when you shower. I want you to find me in every little thing you do, so that one day, when you cannot stand it, you will come back to me.
It was ten days after she left me that I started having a hard time sleeping. I realized this was because her scent was gone from my pillow. Now that I realize that she was the only thing that could give me peace and rest, I shall never sleep again.
I haven’t laughed since you went away. You took it with you, and I want it back.
I could have anyone in the world, but in the end, the only thing I could have is the best, and that is you.
I was always very good at keeping secrets, but I wish I had told you that I loved your smile, your voice, your gentle breathing. And now that you are gone, my regret shall remain a secret.
I wake up every day missing you; the way you leave toothpaste in the sink, the toilet seat up, and the dirty dishes in the sink. And then I realized what a pain you were to me, and I miss you more.
You were my mirror, the one who reflected the good and revealed the bad. You showed me myself and now that you have gone, I cannot see myself anymore.
I made you my life, and I this was a mistake, I know, for you lost yourself. And now that you are free, you have taken all of mine, and now it is I that is lost.

All I have left of you is memory and the hairpins you left upon my dresser. I want you so I could once more see you pin those upon your hair, life would have meaning again.

Suddenly, all the color left, and all that was left was the gray and dullness of the monotonous existence of being single instead of being one with you.
These days, I found myself hating the holidays and resenting merrymakers. How can I be happy when the only source of light has left me bare and broken?
I wish I could take back all the stupid things I did that made you leave me. I would turn the whole world upside down for you, like how you turned my whole world upside down and made me love you.
I held on to you too tight, and crushed your wings. Now I let you go, so you can be free, and seeing you soar is my only joy. I want you baby!
I used to love sunrises but I hated it when you left me. All my hopes and dreams left with you, yet all I could think is to wish you well with them, so that my love can live with you, always. I wanted you and always only you!
