return our love.

Broken hearts die slowly.
Where there is love, there is pain.
I hold it true, what e'er befall;
I feel it , when I sorrow most;
'Tis better to have loved and lost
Than never to have loved at all.
~Alfred, Lord Tennyson
Lie still, lie still, my breaking heart
My silent heart, lie still and break.
Reading love hurts quotes can get a little self-defeating after awhile. Although you need to let yourself feel the pain of lost love, how about letting yourself be open to the idea of finding a friend. Start just with a little friendship and see how things progress. If you find you're not ready, then wait a little longer, but you may find that you're ready to let love find you again.
Murmur, a little sadly, how love fled.
~William Butler Yeats
Without love our life is ... a ship without a rudder ...
like a body without a soul.
"Tis not love's going hurts my days,
But that it went in little ways.
~Edna St. Vincent Millay
Love Hurts Quotes
The kiss of virgins, first-fruits of the bed,
Soft speech, smooth touch, the lips, the maidenhead:
These, and a thousand sweets, could never be
So near, or dear, as thou wast once to me.
The man is quickened so with grief,
He wanders god-like or like thief
Inside and out, below, above,
With relief seeking lost love.
