    You know what sucks and hurts beyond belief?

    Experiencing a break-up, not thinking you'll ever be able to get over that person, and then, *just* as you're starting to feel like, "Okay, I can move on"... somebody starts talking about him (or her). Then all the memories come rushing back, and you're just left sitting there...

    When someone hurts you enough,

    you become afraid that everyone's going to do it too. And maybe he or she is just as scared as you.

    Or maybe its just the fear of the unknown of

    not knowing when or who will take that first jump, knowing that if it isn't returned the pain will be even deeper. So during the day you try to be strong holding inside all that you feel. Then comes the night where you begin to wonder how much longer you can remain strong and...

    (Astrology reference) For people with Venus in

    Scorpio, love hurts when it's both good and bad.. we're cautious to open up because we know once we fall in love it's a done deal.. Libras and Sagittarius with this placement have it the hardest in understanding and controlling these feelings. (Virgo through Capricorn can have...

    I Can....

    But like Incubus sing- "Love hurts, but sometimes it's a good hurt, And it feels like I'm alive. Love sings, When it transcends the bad things, have a heart and try me, 'Cause without love I won't survive."

    Not Only Does It Hurt Like Hell

    It kills & destroys. It fails you & leaves you cold. It makes you cry & want to die. It breaks people's hearts & causes a lot of suicides & depressions. The minute you start walking down that much desired & rose-covered path, expect to be pricked by the thorns many times. I...

    My ex still calls me babe

    and her princess. It hurts so much to realize its all fake. It's like I was stabbed. And she even has pics of us still. It honestly kills me how much she pretends but won't let us be together. She's the reason I cry yet smile.

    I've learned that love hurts.

    It's something so fragile and can be gone just as fast as it came. The truth is Love is temporary it comes and goes, it can bring you happiness or sadness. Loving someone seems like such a beautiful thing on the outside but from the inside it hurts you never know when it might...

    Pain Is Your Friend

    It reminds us that we are still alive to face a new day and hope for something better or if things are great, we hope they stay the same. Love hurts because sometimes good things just have a price tag attached to them.

    I remember reading somewhere

    that it is not the love that hurts, what hurts is the rejection, the heartbreak, the pain of not being loved. The feeling that is left in our hearts after experiencing something so uniquely beautiful, something, or I suppose someone that changed the perspective for everything...
