I Hate Love

"Have you ever been in love? Horrible isn't it? It makes you so vulnerable. It opens your chest and it opens up your heart and it means that someone can get inside you and mess you up.
You build up all these defenses, you build up a whole suit of armor, suit of armor, so that nothing can hurt you, then one stupid person, no different from any other stupid person, wanders into your stupid life
...You give them a piece of you. They didn't ask for it. They did something dumb one day, like smile at you, and then your life isn't your own anymore.
Love takes hostages. It gets inside you. It eats you out and leaves you crying in the darkness, so simple a phrase like 'maybe we should be just friends' turns into a glass splinter working its way into your heart. It hurts. Not just in the imagination.
Not just in the mind. It's a soul-hurt, a real gets-inside-you-and-rips-you-apart pain.
I hate love". By Neil Gaiman

You can't have love without the potential of sorrow, just like you can't have good without bad, up without down or dark without light. Our universe is a balance of opposites....

GARF said...

Some people do hate and some do love it. Depends.
Yah love does hurt. I do agree to those words "simply friends"... But someone wise had said that "we don't choose love..love chooses us"...so there is little i guess we can do about it.:)

Man I so agree with that! So true, sad but true. But after all that I still don't want to be single the rest of my life. Thats the sad part.
