Have you ever been in love?
So in love, that it leaves you feeling sad and empty,
but happy at the same time.

Love can be so horrible.
It makes you vulnerable.
It opens up your heart and it means that someone can get inside you.
Get inside and mess you up.
You build up all these defences,
a whole suit of armour,
so that nothing can hurt you.
Then one person,
no different from anyone else,
wanders into your life.
You give them a piece of you,
but they didn’t ask for it.
All they did was something stupid one day,
like smile at you.
And all of a sudden your life isn’t your own anymore.

Love takes hostages,
It gets inside of you.
It eats you up and leaves you crying into the darkness.
So simple a phrase as;
“maybe we should just be friends”,
turns into a glass splinter,
working its way into your heart.
It hurts.
Not just in the normal hurt,
not just in your mind.
It’s a soul hurt.
A real gets-inside-you-and-tears-you-apart hurt.

Oh, the joyfulness,
that can only be 
love.
