    Often Wondered...

    I spent years wondering exactly how love feels. Does it feel the same as if you were in lust? If not, what is it akin to?... I think I know the answer. I think it feels like you are happy most when you're around them, and you want to share your lives and dreams. It is a feeling...

    You Showed Me

    In all the relationships from my past, I thought I was possibly experiencing love. I would give myself to that person, almost in a act of sacrifice, laying my heart at their feet. I would hope for some kind of acknowledgment - some sign that they accepted me - and when it was...

    ...or SOMETHING like that. I am not in love right now and that makes it hard to define by memory. I am wondering if I'll get the feeling ever again, and that bothers me. There really is nothing to compare it to. For me, it's the longing to be together when apart. Anticipation...

    Lots of Experience There

     My heart has been attached to many a lady over the years, some 60 years and dozens of women.  Some didn't work and many did.  Love lights up my heart and a kiss makes me tingle and want more.  Love makes me patient and kind when my lover has a bad day and isn...

    To Have Loved and Lost...

    As they say, is better than to have never loved at all. To which some say 'try it.' Well... I would not be the person I am today without the experiences that shape me, including having loved greatly - and lost that love. The feeling of having that love... is like none...

    I truly believe my husband does not have the same capacity for love as I do. I don't think it is possible for him to love me like I love him.

    Jesus had a broken heart. People chose not to follow him, because they didn't believe Him when He said He was son of God. And that broke Jesus's heart.
