is much more difficult to remove
than the hunger for bread.
When you are in love, life is full and
there is never enough time together.
People need to be needed.
They have the basic need of loving and being loved.
So often there is the mindset that “something is better than nothing” or in other words, being with “someone” is better than being with “no one.”
Those relationships are lonely.
Sunsets are depressing. Sunrises feel hopeless.
You sit beside each other, so close you can feel the warmth from one another, and yet you purposefully never touch.
It is like the very popular Eagles song, “Lying Eyes”…
“Late at night that big old house gets lonely.
I guess every form of refuge has it’s price.
And it breaks her heart to think her love is only
given to a man with hands as cold as ice.”
She gave up real love for a man with money and she is lonely.
A marriage without love is the loneliest form of being lonely.
It is deafeningly silent.
Your heart aches with emptiness
especially when they are near.
Alternately, when you are in love, your heart aches with happiness…
In the beginning there is excitement at the mere thought of the other person
and as the months fade into years, it becomes a relaxed peacefulness
interspersed with overwhelming love and passion.
Love is not lonely.
It wipes out all sense of time,
destroying all memory of a beginning
and all fear of an end.
except the suicide,
than that man who has lived
many years with a good wife
and then outlived her.
If two people love each other
there can be no happy end to it.
“Whoso loves, believes the impossible.”
