Love was my test

Before I knew what love was, I thought it was easy like when you love, you expect to be loved back. When you give, you expect to receive something back.

When you’re hurt love can easily comfort you. I thought love was my medicine when I was hurting deeply. I thought love was my ally when the world pounded me and bombarded me with painful wounds.

I was wrong, love was my test.

Love was my enemy, love was the measurement of how I really want to spend my life with somebody. Love was never my redemption, love was there even to the point of my execution. Love stood under my umbrella. Love held me when I was drowning in my insanity.

Love stood beside me when the heavy eyes of the world judged me. Love built a roof when problems rained on me. Love taught me to dance in the rain. And when I was able to stand up and be strong again, love fulfilled his duty and then left me.

  1. I love reading it Ana, for me there’s no more important thing in this word aside to love and to share love. Just like you I am also expecting to receive something back coz Im human and I wanted to feel love that I am loved. 🙂

  2. The last line makes me sad.
    I’m going to have to wonder about it a bit more. Duty and love is kind of like Tevye and his wife in Fiddler on the Roof (Do you love me?), but love that is a duty which leaves when done??? This is sad.

  3. If love fulfilled his duty and then left you it wasn’t true love. True love would have stayed and would still be there. Don’t give up hope! It might be just around the corner. 🙂

  5. I was once told that love saves or rewards.

    I didn’t believe him. Yet a silence fell over me when I discovered he was right all along. The thing is, when love saves, it is a test like you say. Its hard.

    But, heal and bandage your wounds… because when love comes back to reward us, it comes back differently. Like a warm blanket sheltering us from the cold.

    Beautiful writing! And it is my sincere hope that love comes again, this time, to reward!
