Falls cold and ceaseless, wore my heart away!

It's not love's going hurts my days
But that it went in little ways.
~Edna St. Vincent Millay


Have you ever been in love?  Horrible isn't it?  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 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.  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.  ~Neil Gaiman, The Sandman, Vol. 9: The Kindly Ones


...Lost in your heart, lost in your eyes
Lost every day, no map to follow
Entire days, weeks, a blur
Flickers of light, in the darkness,
Only to be enveloped in shadows once more...
~Peter Winstanley


You left, and my heart is a ceaseless sermon of loneliness. ~Terri Guillemets


I never knew until that moment how bad it could hurt to lose something you never really had. ~From the television show The Wonder Years


To all the people in the world who feel empty
Grab onto a piece of my heart
For I feel empty too
And together we can make a chain of love.
~Astrid Alauda


Nothing takes the taste out of peanut butter quite like unrequited love.  ~Charlie Brown


How beautiful the yesterday that stood Over me like a rainbow! I am alone, The past is past. I see the future stretch All dark and barren as a rainy sea. ~Alexander Smith


Numbing the pain for a while will make it worse when you finally feel it.  ~J.K. Rowling


I prithee send me back my heart,
Since I cannot have thine;
For if from yours you will not part,
Why, then, shouldst thou have mine?
~John Suckling


Yes, I will go.  I would rather grieve over your absence than over you.  ~Antonio Porchia, Voces, 1943, translated from Spanish by W.S. Merwin


Maid of Athens, ere we part,
Give, oh give me back my heart!
~George Gordon, Lord Byron, "Maid of Athens"


Let no one who loves be unhappy... even love unreturned has its rainbow.  ~James Matthew Barrie
