Thinking after reading Neils Lyhne

(Niels Lyhne)

Is love this intense only when there is yearning? Only when you don’t get what/who you love? Why is that kind of love more pure, more ‘something’ (not getting proper word)?

Why, when you get what you yearned for, you start taking it for granted? The thrill, the yearning subsides?

~ that’s why marriages fail. that’s why hearts get broken. only the love that was unrequited is considered so much higher, purer, than the love we have out of responsibilities and duties.. why can’t ppl fall in love the same way with their spouses as that of unrequited love? why is it more heartbreaking and pure?

we want what we cant get, we dont want what we have. the eternal dilemma continuum.. ~
