Something shatters, when the person you love doesn’t love you back. When they are hurt, you are hurt. It’s lucky if you ever fall out of love. Even if you do, then something comes – a thought, a phrase, a statement, a face, a familiarity that shatters your defences – like a gust of wind blowing down a card house. You are back where you started from, to build the house of cards all over again. By the time your defences are up again, something reminds you of your broken heart – again! Falling in love is like taking a long walk off a short pier! No one can help but the person you love or the almighty.
