The Risk of It All

…is a complicated and compelling mystery; a story everyone wants to have a happy ending. All love brings happiness; some stay happy and many don’t. It is the risk of it all that makes loving and being loved so precious.

From “Lucky” by English Novelist, Jackie Collins
apple_heartFalling in love is like
getting hit by a truck
and yet not being
mortally wounded;
Just sick to your stomach,
high one minute,
low the next.
Starving hungry
but unable to eat.
Hot, cold, forever horny,
full of hope and enthusiasm,
with momentary depressions
that wipe you out.
