When Love Is Empty

State of Mind When Written: Conversations with a friend trying to determine if the hurt resulting from affections of love is still worth the trouble. My take on this!
dDaiga 1/25/08


---------------------------------------------------------
When love is not sustained, it hurts.
When love feels empty and devoid of passion, it hurts.
When love leaves you questioning its existence, it hurts.
When love doesn’t reassure you while in doubt, it hurts.
When love is not your place of refuge from the world, it hurts.

When loving someone brings more pain than joy,
You must let it go.
When loving someone feels like you are in it by yourself,
You must let it go.
When loving someone feels like you are trying to hard,
You must let it go.

You must let it go because the timing is not right for you!
You must let it go because that is not the kind of love you need!
You must let it go because that is not nourishing for your soul!

And even though you must let it go, reassure yourself you didn’t fail.
Even though you must let it go, part in good faith.
Even though you must let it go, believe that a newer love awaits you ahead.

A love that will uphold and reassure you.
A love that will embrace and comfort you.
A love that will ensure you have no doubts.
A love that will be longing for you as much as you do for it.
A love that will equal or surpass your feelings.
A love that will bring enough joy to erase all your pain.
A love that will be truer and more sincere.

So let it go if it hurts or feels empty. Just let it go!
You will be okay!

D!
In love I have been,
And through love I have been hurt.
It is never easy,
And there is often no easy way out.
Facing the facts is what I recommend.
Better cry heavily once and never cry again.
If you cannot get back, why keep on giving?
Love is a communion,
The same as you receive, so shall you give, and even more.
Falling in love is one thing,
Staying in love is another.
The flame sometimes dies down,
And we need some fuel to keep going.
In times like this,
Patience, kindness and determination are most needed.
Nevertheless, patience has its limits,
Take it too far and it is cowardice
But, as I say,
Never give up without a fight,
Never let go without trying,
For love is hard to find,
And Love is harder to keep.

Hi Diane,
Your word are so touching and true.Just as Tony Braxton quotes,love is stronger than pride but never let the love over-ride you pride.
Almost evrey adult has been there and know what is to love,
