I believe love does not stop; however, caring for someone can. Sometimes we put too much time and energy into people who do not appreciate it or reciprocate it. Some people push and push until we have to give in and acknowledge we can love that person but we cannot continue to revolve our world Round him/her.
If you could only see that still loving her is keeping your heart from me.. And I would love you always. Regardless of your faults, of your insecurities, of your fragile and broken heart.. I will mend it all if you allow me to.. Because you are everything I've always wished to have and everything I want to be.
I would love to say that if people just keep trying it will always workout. The truth is it takes two and it doesn't always work; however, no matter what happens love is priceless and worth it, good or bad, even if it's a few moments or a lifelong love. So.... never give up on the notion of loving and being loved, even if we have a heartbreaking past.
As people we find that getting hurt (physically or emotionally) is painfully. Whether the hurt comes from Love, Friends, Work, or even Family; it hurts a little more when you can look at someone dead on and honestly tell them "I'm used to it". A wise man once told me that God forgives and forgets but as humans we tend to remember things, especially pain and hurt, for a while.
