What happens when love doesn’t mean what you think it should mean? When the people who say they love you don’t respect you, nor do they try to protect you from the hurt of others. When the one you love is the one you can’t confide in. When the one you love is the last one to understand you. Why would you want to be loved if this is what you see from those who love you? Why give out love knowing you won’t receive your idea of love in return?
When all your ideas of love have failed, does that mean that love itself has failed? When the word “love” makes you cringe, because it has become the cold steel blade of the knife you have felt in your back one too many times. Do you find something other than love to share with your “loved” ones, or do you simply just give up on love altogether?
When did the dreams and fairy tales turn into nightmares? Is this just part long term relationships? If so, why is this what most people try to get out of life? Does that mean that all these couple that have been “happily married” for years have been lying? If they are telling the truth, how were they able to hold on to some silly emotion? Can you be “happily married” without love?
When you lose faith in love, do you lose faith in all other emotions as well? Is this why it is so easy to stay numb and disconnected? How can you be drowning while those who love you, not only watch you struggle, but throw more weight at you to carry? Do they not see? Do they not care? Either way…how can they say they love you, and not help save you? If this is love, why would anyone want any part of it?
Can you dig deeper in a relationship and find more than love to save it? Is there anything more than love?
My heart aches and my head hurts! I long for the days when I dreamt of love, and it was a beautiful image in my mind! Now love is something that I doubt ever existed to begin with.
How do you show love to those who still believe in it, when you don’t even know how to feel it anymore?
