How love can die

I walked into the dark chamber
and saw through scented smoke
a priestess, who demanded my question.

How can love die? I asked.

She replied:
absorption with yourself,
losing kindness,
closing communication,
numbing empathy,
taking for granted,
stifling growth,
but never death itself.

Look into your heart she called
as her eyes pierced my soul,
and sent me on my way.

Thank you Huntress, so true, I couldn't agree more.

When Prince Charles and Lady Diana Spencer became engaged they were asked by a television reporter if they were in love. Diana looked lovingly up at Charles for his response, and Charles said after a pause, "Of course ....... whatever love is." I remember thinking then that there was ominous writing on the wall, and we had the most high profile loveless and love lost relationship of recent times.

I think there are a lot of smart one-liners about what love is, but maybe the moment we try to define it it eludes us.

Thanks again. I must visit your blog.

Warm -

I was struck by Sensually's words, "I don't believe people "fall out of love", I think they were never in love to begin with. So much truth in that statement. I remember hearing someone say not too long ago that being in love was "extended infatuation" and in the same conversation another said it was, "lust worn in disguise" ... as it did for me now and does again now, it begs the question, "why is it really to be in love" ...

Thank you, sensually. I did write it and was affected a lot by people's relationships I had known about, both online and in 'real life.'

I wish I had real wisdom about love. I seem to be learning a little more about it every day, but maybe I'm a slow learner. I was particularly taken by [post 106537] by [blog mizzkitka], which has still got me thinking.

Your comment I don't believe people "fall out of love", I think they were never in love to begin with. is really thought-provoking.

I always value your insightfulness. Thanks again. warm xx

I like this. Wondering how I missed it the first time around. Did you write it, warm?

Love doesn't die. People just move on. But if you notice, even when love is "lost" between two, at least one of those two nearly always carries the love with them, even if it's just tucked away in some corner of their heart. I don't believe people "fall out of love"; I think they were never in love to begin with. Love is such a complicated emotion. But probably because we, as humans, make it that way. xo

Thank you Jim. Love comes in many guises, I have found, yet always is it Love.

I like the expression 'a voice in the wind.' It has soul.

sweet angel, I knew you would agree. I know a woman who lost her husband, who was a good friend of mine, recently. He was only fifty five and a lovely man. She still feels his presence, catches glimpses of him and hears him talking to her. She is both sane and level-headed, and none of us think this strange. This is love that lives beyond the death of our mortal shell. warm xx

Depends? Love indeed changes. Some fall into love, while some fall out of love. It's what one puts into it. It has to be mutual and not forced. Been there, done that, and STILL there roaming the wilderness on creation searching for beautiful and assurance in a land lost in timing. LOVE though absent sings in my soul.
Rocking on in the assurance of song in my heart.

a voice in the wind

I believe that is true with all my heart. For love can die unless you actually kill it yourself. It does not die on it's own.
