Love Hurts...

Just read DD's blog... she has recently written something on Love & Broken Heart. While I was going through her post, it kinda got me thinking. Like she says... if anyone has ever loved and lost, they will most certainly be able to associate with the hurt that comes with a "broken heart"! ... "The feeling, the pain, the throbbing", that is "almost unbearable at times"!

Yes, it's true. I totally agree with her. It really is painful... this feeling of being ripped apart... the sudden void in your life... the hollow ache...! But does it hurt only when we love someone and that someone doesn't reciprocate the same feelings? What about the way a mother feels when she watches her kid leave home for his first day at playgroup? And what about those tears in a father's eyes when he watches his son score the winning goal in a soccer match?

In the movie Terminator 2, when Arnold Schwarzenegger was about to destroy himself, and saw that John was crying for him, he said that was the one thing he wished he could do... LOVE!

Love HURTS. Period.
It doesn't matter whether you are heart-broken or not...
if you love someone, it just... hurts.

It hurts when you are away from him, it hurts when you are with him!
It hurts when you see him in joy, it hurts to feel his pain!
It hurts when he holds you in his arms, it hurts when his eyes say he cares!

No matter whether you are together or separated,
whether he's with you or with someone else,
every time you think of him, your heart is flooded with emotion.

Every time you remember the moments spent with him,
it brings a smile on your lips...
and yet your heart weeps...

Not because you can't be with him anymore...
but because you are so thankful to God,
for the memories of those few precious moments you shared with him...

The very fact that it hurts means you are not a machine,
for machines cannot love!
And if it doesn't hurt, it ain't love at all...

It hurts because you love someone so much...
that you just cannot contain it inside your heart anymore...
and it flows out from your eyes as tears!

And yet there are people who are so unfortunate that they are never able to feel the pangs of real love... for anyone! They are never able to surrender themselves so completely in love... not because they are selfish... but because they are scared. They don't trust life... and they don't consider themselves worthy of LOVE.

A person who is unable to love needs it the most... for his heart is like an iceberg... which only the warmth of love can melt into tears...

Love hurts. True love doesn't.

Ah ha! My post was just in general rememberance of love gone by and that it didn't always go the way I wanted it too, but not necessarily because the same feelings weren't reciprocated but because they were given in a different way. Like everyone's different personalities!

Be real.Love will not hurt.

Kaddu said...

@ DD - Hmmm! Well my post isn't even about love reciprocated in a different way... it's just about love. Period. And the emotional surges u feel when u really love someone...

Kaddu said...

@ Neelabh - By "REAL", I suppose u mean "PRACTICAL". My old school friend Tuli n I always used to say that love cannot be fully experienced by practical people! Maybe it really is true.

But do ask ur parents if they never shed any tears on ur accomplishments and hurts as u were growing up. I don't hv kids of my own, but even when I watch my 9 month nephew look up at me with the biggest grin he can mange on his face, just for a silly photograph... well... the feeling is not describable in words...

Let urself love someone... I mean "TRULY" love someone... n then u will understand what I mean :)

Love hurts in many ways! Good, bad, misunderstanding, totally ecstatic...if you haven't experienced this then you haven't experienced love. That was for your reader and his comment above.
