I Loved Her


I did

Sacrificed all for her

I did

Loved her

Truly did

But...

Love may not please another

Sacrifice means little

“Love” is only

What the “Loved One” wants

Gave my all

Gave my life

Drove myself

To near death

But,

Sacrifice means little

“Love” is only

What the “Loved One” wants

Because she didn't love herself, she couldn't accept your love for her.

There's a fuck lot of truth in that. Love is only what the loved one wants. Love language. There are many. But if you don't speak hers, and visa versa...it feels so damn empty.

I read this with much angst. And empathy.

There are so many layers here. I don't want to over-analyze it - I just want to say it reads very well and carries a lot of emotion most people can relate to.

Another one that's hitting so close to home. I love your soul, Jonas... I truly do. I embrace it every time I come visit. Reading your words adds something to my life. Thank you for sharing your thoughts in the way that you do. I feel blessed.

I think your words touch something in each of us, Jonas... You seem to have the ability to put those feelings and experiences into words that give all of us something to relate to.

Thank you all but, peoples, I gotta say that accolades kinda freak me out.

I'm realizing too, that love is a choice. It's more cerebral than I once believed. That's a little unnerving.

Re: freaked out over accolades

I say this at the risk of sounding insensitive: deal with it.

I've been unnerved for too many years to count, Erin.

I'm trying to deal as best I can, Anna.

Touched? Oh, yeah. Your words touch a place somewhere deep inside that hurts a little, even after all these years. It's the place where the words "if only" still echo a bit.

No, Lilith, it wasn't that. It was far more complicated than that.

This is a theme I've circled around for many years, Annie. There's even an entry I posted years ago about "Romance Languages." In fact, there have been quite a few blog posts that dance around this pain.

Thank you, Joel. And welcome!

Oh, Anna, you made me blush.

And you, too, Ponita.

Yes, Erin, Love is the ultimate conundrum and Holy Grail.

Haunted by the words "if only" Patti? Me, too.
