"You think you’re in love
Like it’s a real sure thing
But every time you fall
You get your ass in a sling
You used to be strong
But now it’s ooh baby please
’cause falling in love is so hard on the knees"
~Falling in Love, Aerosmith
I dont think that teenage crazy love could be defined in any better way, than the above stanza from Aerosmith's famous song.
I was just listening to the song, and reminiscing. And maybe I had an epiphany(to quote Innuit woman in The Simpsons, "realization of a divine truth!")
But this epiphany I have had many times in the past.
I fall in love, so easily, and then think that maybe she's the one for me, and then maybe I do something wrong, or I don't do anything wrong and well things end.
(No no I'm not sobbing and crying bitterly at this stage, I'm just contemplating, my close friends will know I do that a lot!)
I look back at my relationships, and wonder to myself, each of them, had been at the start of it, this euphoric experience, a feeling on being on 999th heaven, and this continues, and I do a lot of crazy things for the person I'm in love with, but then at the end of it, I either get BORED when there's no reciprocation from the other end, or just I get negative vibes, which in short say back off.
But that euphoric experience, the initial high,like jumping from an airplane, or the first swig of a chilled beer, is definitely worth it. Yet, what happens at the end of it. Well falling in love is hard on the knees.
But is it not that you need to know that you can get hurt, realization and not denial, which is the ultimate truth, the ultimate strength, and yet the ultimate weakness.
But a weakness, can be "transmorgified"(Calvin & Hobbes), into something, that is more a strength than a weakness, and that's what I think falling in love, helps you do.
Think about it unless you fall in love,you dont experience the euphoria, and you dont experience the 999th heaven.
So what if you fall and get hurt. You'll fall in love again.
It's the human heart.
tracing my lips,
her warm breath,
on my neck.
i look at her,
emotion wells through me,
lashes away at the shore,
flow no more,
