and they called it Love

“Have you ever been in love? Horrible isn’t it? It makes you so vulnerable. It opens your chest and it opens up your heart and it means that someone can get inside you and mess you up.

You build up all these defenses, you build up a whole suit of armor, so that nothing can hurt you, then one stupid person, no different from any other stupid person, wanders into your stupid life…You give them a piece of you. They didn’t ask for it. They did something dumb one day, like kiss you or smile at you, and then your life isn’t your own anymore.

Love takes hostages. It gets inside you. It eats you out and leaves you crying in the darkness, so simple a phrase like ‘maybe we should be just friends’ turns into a glass splinter working its way into your heart.

It hurts. Not just in the imagination. Not just in the mind.

It’s a soul-hurt, a real gets-inside-you-and-rips-you-apart pain.

I hate love.”

Hot stuff, but I’ve heard the book is sappy and the movie is crappy…haha…well..being a macho man i’m not sure you would have heard of//noticed the movie…hee…)

    PS… yes! I saw the movie poster… somewhere… of course, I instead chose to watch “Cyborg Ninjas from District 9: The Return”.

    All right, I made that up; but it would be soo cool if a movie like that was made instead of these stupid love stories!
