    I must remember this - for it is true. I just wish, for once, I could freely give my love to someone and have it accepted and then feel that love returned without reservation or fear.

    Keep Heart, Mind And Eyes Open

    I must keep my heart open, and not shut out the possibility of love. I must keep my mind open, as love may present itself differently than I envision it. I must keep my eyes open, for there might still be those who wish to take advantage of my open heart.

    From X To A, Smoldering Spirit.

    Sometimes I feel like falling; like fading into nothing. Sometimes I feel like dying, because the pain is too much for crying. To sleep and never wake again would be a kind gift. For all that I have given, and all that I have felt has been too little too late and never enough...

    Love doesn't hurt, but a lack of it does.

    I recently had feelings for 2 guys at the same time. I touched base on them about each other, cos that's the sort of person I am. If someone matters to me, I won't totally go behind their back. I will be honest and do right by you. I was saying, love doesn't hurt, but...

    What Is Love

    Love is the longest 4 letter word I can think of. its over used and misused as well. A persons self worth must be respected in any loving relationship. If it is not then love wanes.
