Human Love is Complicated

Human love is the most difficult love to understand. Sometimes people just walk away from your life because they are afraid of your emotional attachment with them. This doesn't mean they are bad people or they don't like you. It just means that they are afraid to hurt you intentionally and unintentionally.

If you ever meet someone like this, take care of them, appreciate them, and respect them. They aren't bad; they're just too sensitive. They may not feel the same way about you, but they do care and respect your sentiments. That's why they leave. At least, it's what I believe. When we love someone, it is quite clear that we inadvertently tie some expectations with them, and when the other person can't meet our expectations, we get upset, which is why they leave because they don't want to harm us.

Such individuals are frequently blamed. We call them culprits, but we forget that every coin has two sides. We usually fail to understand and see the other side of the coin.

How can we tie a bird's wings and expect it to fly freely? When we love someone, we must let them free. Allow them some breathing space. Believe that nothing can take them away from us if they are in our destiny.

Love Saying Goodbye

Keep distance from the closing doors

A girl's voice says, look back just once more


As a metal trap,

The dry noise of banging doors

She hears destiny calling her name

Who's at the other end of the road?


Can you see the light?

Is it dark or is it bright?


A girl alone on the platform,

Watches him go

Sinking into this black hole,

Already losing it all


Her vision blurs

The silent cries


She gently let herself be rocked

By the jerky rhythm

Of the steel matrix

That will be expelled soon


Can you hear the lullaby?

Of love saying goodbye?


A woman stands alone on the quay.

Take note of how he walks away.

This train of despondency

It's the conclusion of a story.

Well, you only need the light when it's burning low

Only miss the sun when it starts to snow

Only know you love her when you let her go

— Passenger ~ Song Lyrics

Let Her Go
