Have You Ever Been In Love?

“Have you ever been in love? Horrible isn’t it? It makes you so vulnerable.

Β It opens your chest and it opens up your heart and it means that someone can 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 out and leaves you crying in the darkness, so simple a phrase like ‘maybe we should be just friends’ turns into a glass splinter working its way into your heart.”

― Neil Gaiman,Β The Kindly Ones

      I’m glad you like it. It’s really interesting point of view 😁😁😁😁

  2. Hit it on the nail with this. The kind of honest and sincere writing that is always overshadowed by ‘sunshine and butterflies’ descriptions of the feeling of being in love. Makes me want to reread something by Gaiman 😊
