True love is but a painful gift
For all the joy it brings
For nothing twists your soul at night
Like the heart that has filled itself with love

Unrequited love brings tears
It brings sorrow and brings pain
It takes so much and then takes more
And leaves but an empty shell

I loved you with all mine heart and soul
And expected no return
Yet mine affections you cast off
And tossed aside me, like some junk

Mine fate I lamented upon
My mind clouded and dark
And here I sit, a living husk
My emotions cold and stark

I relate completely.
For me, I have found that the emotion of unrequited love is so powerful that at times it outweighs the reality of "love". It must be the cruelest joke God plays. I have spent considarable time trying to separate these two events. The dream and the reality.  Yet I am a dreamer...I still think wistfully of woman I have not seen in years.

Welcome to passions...wonderful words and idea behind them for a first post. Often have wondered myself which is worse...to love and truly love or to not love and wish we loved...love and pain seem hand in hand at times.

Loved it! It's true that sometimes love does hurt, but once you've found it, it's the best feeling ever.

We have nearly ALL

The Song That Is Soul
It Reaches Defiant
Giving It In And Given

Sometimes the true wounds are not shown. Welcome.
