Have u ever been in LOVE?
Horrible! isn’t it?
It makes you vulnerable.
It opens your heart and chest.
Which means someone can get in and mess you up.
You build up all these defences
You build up a whole suit of armour,
So that nothing can hurt you.
Then one stupid person,
Not different from any other stupid person wanders into your life,
You give them a piece of yours they didn’t ask.
They did something one day like kiss you,
Or smile at you, then your life is no more yours.
Love takes hostages,
It gets inside you, it eats you out leaving you crying in the darkness
So simple a phrase like,
“maybe we should be friends”
Turns into a glass splinter working its way into your heart.
A hurt not just in your imagination, not in your heart.
It’s a soul hurt. I hate LOVE.
