When the Heart and Love Isn’t on the Same Accord

Eyes meet, palms sweat, hearts race, sparks fly, instant attraction, butterflies, lost composure, word stumbling and nervous laughs. Wow! True love has finally found you. Love is an emotion that is truly amazing. It lightens the heart and makes sure all your days are loaded with sheer delight. It makes you spontaneous, it energizes you and is as comforting as an evening summer breeze. You laugh at the same things and phone calls melt the heart. Being away from each other for minutes seem like hours because concentrating on something that doesn’t involve the other is a thought in vain. To keep your hands off each other is a monumental feat. And if someone can’t get with the program and accept the love you’ve found they become dispensable. 
Then one day out of the blue things begin to change. For some reason love picks a fight with the same heart that it seemed to care so much about. A silly fight it must be confessed. Said it didn’t want to be friends any longer with the same heart that it promised that it would forever hold on to and never, ever hurt. Now that same hearts playing defense because it doesn’t want to surrender. But how could it possibly win when love has all the power? That bully pulled a fast one. It snatched all the thrills that used to feel spectacular and before the heart could make its case it started ripping the strings of it like ribbons. How could it not know that those ribbons was the skeletal that was shielding all that it held so dear? Then it licked its tongue out as if to say don’t you dare try to impose your love again because you will have the same coming. Showing no emotion it eased towards the door while a severely injured heart begged it not to go. It said, ” I know things look pretty bad but a bandage here and a little caring there and I will be alright again. I forgive you and am willing to let bygones be bygones so please take your hand off that doorknob. If you didn’t want a home in me why did you give me everything that I’ve been missing? Love responded, ” I showed up to teach you a lesson.” The heart said,” And that is?” Love said,” Stop being desperate because I didn’t ask for your heart you pushed it on me.” So in all actuality you hurt you.
