Questions on Love

Written 30th May

Have you ever felt absolutely stupid for caring too freaking much?
Even though there is nothing wrong with caring, you know
Because you care, it matters if it’s not reciprocated.
And you feel like a pathetic fool for caring…
for the times you were selfless,
for the times you cared expecting
(Consciously or not) Some return.
Still, what is wrong with caring?
What is wrong with loving?
Can you help it?
Can you not care?
Can you not love?


And so you go on berating yourself
Because your heart feels what the mind resists.
Yet, isn’t love about not counting the cost?
To empty yourself and not desire return?
