Sometimes it lasts in love, but sometimes it hurts instead…

I am neck-deep in files to edit and review when Adele’s melancholic voice pervaded my psyche, halting my thoughts in mid sentence… Ok, Dell KACE, lemme get back to you in a while.

I heard that you’re settled down,
That you found a girl and you’re married now,
I heard that your dreams came true,
Guess she gave you things I didn’t give to you,
Old friend, why are you so shy?
Ain’t like you to hold back or hide from the light…

Someone Like You” by Adele is a simple piano ballad, and listening intently to the heartbreaking lyrics reveal a woman’s pain over a lost love and her struggle to pick up the pieces and try to heal…

I hate to turn up out of the blue uninvited,
But I couldn’t stay away, I couldn’t fight it,
I had hoped you’d see my face,
And that you’d be reminded that for me it isn’t over…

“Sometimes it lasts in love, but sometimes it hurts instead”…  Ok, ok… It’s the fifth playback now, but darn, romantic pain has rarely been so utterly beautiful! I cannot stop listening to it — absorbing every pained word…
Nothing compares,
No worries or cares,
Regrets and mistakes, they’re memories made,
Who would have known how bittersweet this would taste?
The song tries to be positive in the wake of a seemingly bitter breakup. You hear some lines about the beginning of healing, but even that, cannot drown the agony the singer goes through. This song lays bare emotions — of hope for true, lasting love in the future, however, happiness can only be in the arms of someone like the lover she lost.
Reminded me of a poem written by a dearly beloved:

 we fall in love, they don’t

we persist, they hang back

we give up, they linger

…we move on, they hover.

About Seeing with Brahmin eyes
My sense of humor can be keen, sarcastic, silly or corny -- sometimes all at once. I enjoy meeting new people with no preconceived ideas about what or what is not possible. You get much more out of life by being open minded and willing. I'm an easy going, good-natured person who loves life and loves people. I'm both optimistic and realistic and pretty objective when it comes to assessing situations, events, etc. In general I am a very positive person and you'll usually find we with a smile on my face.

    “the beginning of the end” . And isn’t it that in these islands we refer to the dead as “dearly beloved”?. Consistency.

    You know what? Mushy during eulogies and I prolly got the referalls mixed up. “”Dearly departed” for the body, whose soul had been “dearly beloved”. Lusot? 😀
