The Excruciating Agony of Love Songs



It seems to me that when you are in love with someone and it is unrequited, there is no greater pain in the heart than listening to love songs that resonate so deeply your feelings for them yet the aspirations so beautifully expressed in the songs are torturous because you know that the words in the song will never come true.

Why, O God, have you placed within my heart a fire of love for somebody who will never love me in return? Everyday is like torment. Tomorrow I am giving the ring that I foolishly purchased recently to my parish priest and ask him to advertise that there is a beautiful engagement ring for anyone in the parish who wants to marry, but is poor. There must be a poor man of Christ in the congregation who wants to marry his true love. I would sooner that the ring would bring a Catholic couple joy, than pawn it for a couple of hundred quid just to bolster my overdraft. I'll have to sell my car, mind, to get back to zero.

It is so arrogant to think that our loved ones need us more than anything else. Above all, our loved ones need Christ and His Church.

Oh Laurence, I'm so sorry to hear your sad news. I feel so bad for you. I lit a candle for you in church this morning. You will heal over time, and I'm sure you will one day find your true love. If you need to talk anytime, please call me. That's what friends are for. God bless.

Sorry, last comment was from me, Tanya. Using internet on phone and came up as anon for some reason. I really hope you feel better soon. Take care and be strong. Tanya
Thank you for lighting a candle for me. I fear I am in the presence of my true love 24 hours a day.

I will keep praying for you. I need your prayers now too. Just had some very bad news- my boyfriend Richard's brother is in hospital after having a fit. On our way to the hospital in Enfield now. We're not sure of the exact situation yet, but praying he will pull through. His name is Stephen Buck. Thanks. Tanya
