Had I told the sea
What I felt for you,
It would have left its shores,
And followed me.
You don’t need another human being to make your life complete, but let’s be honest. Having your wounds kissed by someone who doesn’t see them as disasters in your soul but cracks to put their love into is the most calming thing in this world.
He held her hand. Happiness is this, he thought.
I don’t believe there is any uncomplicated love in this world.
You will never have to lose yourself to win me over.
Love, real love, is not so easily shed.
Love is a striking example of how little reality means to us.
Sometimes with one I love I fill myself with rage for fear I effuse unreturn’d love,
But now I think there is no unreturn’d love, the pay is certain one way or another,
(I loved a certain person ardently and my love was not return’d,
Yet out of that I have written these songs.)
I really don’t know what ‘I love you’ means. I think it means ‘Don’t leave me here alone.’
The truth is, everyone is going to hurt you. You just got to find the ones worth suffering for.
