The human heart - the organ from whence love comes. While cardiologists might see it as just a simple pumping mechanism, common wisdom knows better. The brain does not love. The lungs do not love. The penis makes a lot of noise about love, but after intercourse its intentions are fairly obvious. In the end, we all know the truth. We've all experienced the truth. That swelling feeling in the chest is the universal sensation we have when the heart is expressing love. Conversely, that sinking feeling in the chest is the universal sensation we have when our love is not reciprocated. It is then that the heart is "broken." We are literally "heartsick" until we learn that our former paramour was inexplicably taken hostage by Somali pirates while dining at a neighborhood pizzeria. News we find "heartening."
More than anything, she craved an intimacy that might transcend the physical. And so she urged him to reveal himself, to step out from behind the self-protecting wall of fear he had carefully constructed over a lifetime of loneliness. Secrets, she assured him, were the only thing that stood in the way of their ever finding true happiness. At first he was reluctant. But as the days passed and he came to trust the relationship, he saw the wisdom of her request. One evening, after a good dinner and some particularly heated love-making, he decided to make the leap. Lying in the darkness, their naked, spent bodies entwined around each other, he quietly told her all the things of his life that he'd never told another living soul. When he finished, she kissed him and thanked him for being so honest and open. He slept peacefully that night knowing that his days of hiding were over. The revelation left him feeling closer to her than he'd ever thought possible. She had insomnia. It's hard to sleep next to a guy when you're pretty sure he's a psychopath.

Can you even survive that kind of pain?
Losing love is like organ damage. Its like dying. The only difference is death ends, THIS- it could go on forever!"
