Something from Neil Gaiman

by - January 24, 2011

Have you ever been in love? Horrible isn't it? It makes you so vunerable.

It opens your chest and it opens your heart and it means that someone get inside you and mess you up
You build up all these defenses, you build up a whole suit of armor so that nothing can hurt you
Then one stupid person, no different from any other stupid person wanders into your stupid life
You give them a piece of you, They didn't ask for it
They did something dumb one day, like kiss you or smile at you, and then your life isn't your own anymore
Love takes hostages. It gets inside you
It eats you and leaves you crying in the darkness
So simple a phrase like 'maybe we should be just friends' turns into a glass slointer working its way into your heart
It hurts, not just in the imagination, not just in the mind. It's a soul-hurt, a real gets-inside-you-and-rips-you-apart pain. I hate love.
