    Tangible

    In order to be real, in order to be tangible for us to truly be aware of what this person or this group of people mean to us - it has to hurt. The mere thought of losing this person has to hurt so that you are therefore so inspired to do what you can to maintain and improve...

    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."

    Hurt Feelings Or Emotions

    Love is not simply a feeling or emotion, love is a place deep within your soul, it is hard to get to, but it is even harder leave.

    Love Hurts

    Of course it does. Anything that can make you feel that good is going to make you feel like **** if it's taken away. It really is like a drug. My last break-up nearly killed me. Would I do it again? In a minute. I love being in love.

    Painful Crush

    I have a huge crush on this guy, who is in the same school club as me. To be honest, I was attracted to him physically, because he's pretty good-looking. I know it's shallow to like a guy just because of his appearance, and I thought it's just gonna go away quickly. But after...

    How come the things that haunt us always come

    out at night? They creep out of the closet and from under the bed. It seems that as soon as the sun goes down they show up to take over our minds. With the arrival of the morning and the light, they creep back to their hiding places, out of our hearts.

    Painful Love

    I love him, and he loves me. He hurts me, but never intentionally. Always fixing it no matter what it takes. Having that little crack in his voice if ever I start to cry or get hurt. Sounding like a defeated man if he feels it's his fault. The pain I get from things he doesn...

    Honesty, Forgiveness, Free Hugs

    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.
