Thursday Inspiration — The Puzzle of Love

img_0181Last night I know I hurt you, but I hope you’ll give me a chance to make up for the harm I’ve done. I’m so sorry and I hope you’ll let me prove to you how bad I feel.

Love, to me, is like a puzzle and I’ve always had trouble getting all of the pieces to fit neatly together. I want to create a beautiful picture of the two of us, but some of the pieces are missing and it makes me angry. Very, very angry. And then I say or do something really stupid.

My darling, only love can break a heart, and only love can mend it again. Please try to forgive me. Let’s work on this puzzle together, my love. Can we work to finish the beautiful picture of the two of us as one? Will you let me hold you and love you for always and always?


Inspired by Paula Light’s Thursday Inspiration prompt, where the theme is “heart.” And by this song, written by Burt Bacharach and Hal David and recorded by Gene Pitney.

    This was Pitney’s highest charting hit and I couldn’t find any information on it but that might be Marianne Faithfull singing with him. Eight years later, Neil Young recorded Only Love Can Break Your Heart.
