Twisted feelings wring the heart
Of any pleasant days,
The wish for him to find his way
Back to your world, or else
He can die a painful death.
I’m guessing nearly everybody in the world knows that Ben Affleck and Jennifer Lopez have got back together and now they are engaged for a second time. I wish them all the happiness in the world, but I also find it kind of weird that two people who have already had a relationship have decided to have a second go at it.
I remember reading the newspaper when I was about nineteen and living in London and they were writing about their relationship crumbling the first time around. It was quite a shocking event to read about as it all happened so quickly and one can only imagine how much pain both parties experienced in going through that – and so publicly.
It’s made me think what it must be like to give love a second chance, especially when you have gone and had another marriage and kids in between. I wonder what their first conversations were like and what thoughts went through their heads when they found themselves falling for each other again.
I wonder if there was still some pain there. I’m certain that re-falling in love is the surest way to mend that hurt, but it takes a big person to break down those walls and admit where you went wrong in the first place.
Wouldn’t it be lovely if all break ups could end this way?
