She wants to feel excited

when she sees him, to feel lost

when he leaves. Otherwise, what’s

the point of any of it? What’s the

use of owning a heart if you

can’t feel it ache?

  1. There r many mediocre things in life…love shouldn’t b one of them…
    If it’s not passionate and fierce…
    I doubt..it’s love:-)

  11. That’s really beautiful. Have not seen a better and simpler definition of love. No lofty promises here, just fluid honesty and truth.

  15. beautiful wordplay but no, love is not all about ache- i doubt if it’s really related or not. it’s much more than anything solely related to pain. although the whole world takes it that way – bt the poets who write love- they will tell you it’s simply beauty and no more.

  18. I’ve been thinking about this question. My heart has ached a lot recently. It’s like using a new muscle. 12 years of marriage and it didn’t ache once. It had virtually given up trying to beat.

  19. Yes so true. For Love one has to really feel, the passion, the pleasure and also the pain 🙂

  20. What’s a heart between beats? / useless wind-up mechanics / faulty, a still lump of desire, shaped / by struggle, tireless in its longing / some molten rock, spiked with shards of glass / broken words, silence of salty tears / frozen into piercing ice / and where my blood should flow / I got silence and confusion… / What’s a heart between beats?/ Mine – a coiled snake ready to bite / – a lump of hurt, confusion and anger.
