Love is Pain

I see pictures of couples together

a longing strikes a match inside me.

I want that.

Yet the pain associated with loving someone ever again burns down the bridges

that lead to ever wanting a love like that again.

 

Stop over-romanticizing love.

People allow it to sweep them away, 

not realizing that the

risk

is far greater than gambling.

It is a

dangerous

game to play.

So many people spend too much time

evelating love between two people when it can do just as much

damage

in the other extreme.

It is not even entirely possible for someone to love equally as another person.

There is no perfect relationship.

There will be hurt simply because no human is perfect.

Love is

pain.
