Have you ever been in love?

Horrible isn’t It makes you so vulnerable.

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 preson no differnt from any other preson wanders into your life

You give them a piece of you.

They didn’t ask for it

They did something one day like kiss you or smile at you and then your life

isn’t your own anymore.

Love takes hostage.

It gets inside you…

It eats you out and leaves you crying in the darkness.

So simple a phrase like maybe we should be friends’ turns into a glass splinter 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.
