They Say Love Hurts
They say Love hurts. Love never hurts.
Disappointment hurts; it drops you from the clouds without any care for the concrete below.
Love never hurts; it embraces you as a mom does her newborn child. Pulling you in tighter and tighter to their chest.
Anger hurts; it closes your mind to others and satiates your sight with red.
Love never hurts; it brightens the room, eliminating the dark shadows lurking in the caverns.
Fear hurts; it leaves you dangling stranded on a tight rope with only the sight of foggy, opaque cloud below.
Love never hurts; it empowers you to believe in the unseen
Isolation hurts; it forces you in a dark, ominous frigid cellar with only the sight of concrete walls.
Love never hurts; it fills our hearts with acceptance and compassion.
Agony hurts; it aches in your bones leaving you limping and struggling to move each muscle.
Love never hurts; love is warming, hopeful, comforting and understanding.
It is relentless in its mission to spread, immerse and overwhelm.
Love never hurts; love is all we need to conquer everything else
