Beautiful Torture

There is a beauty in torture…

When two hearts that beat as one,

Are thrown far apart,

But the heart yearns and grows fonder.

Distance doesn’t defeat love.


Or when your crush is out with someone else,

But you still love them as if they were your own. 

You wish them well.

You’d do anything for them.


Or when they are upset with you over a triviality,

That you know you can resolve with a sorry, but won’t.

Because you love the game of mock anger and making up;

The kisses afterwards, the tender sweet-nothings exchanged.


When they dangle that above your head,

Just within the reach of your grasp,

That which your ears have longed to hear, or your eyes have ached to see,

For what it seems like an eternity.


And there is a beauty in those torturous smiles that they fake,

When they’re aching inside, because they don’t want you hurt too.

But you know anyway,

Because you know them.

Love is a beautiful sort of torture…

  2. Love and torture? Yes it is… when you are deprived of it. Letting go of someone you love because of their choice? The feelings can haunt you for the rest of your life!,

  3. Love or nakhra? 😂
    Btw, I am very straight… But I love my relationships. I can fall on your feet to keep my relationship intact but dislike nakhras though sometimes I do that too…😂

  4. Bonjour ou bonsoir PADRITA
    S’il existe un sentiment
    Pas toujours perçu a sa juste valeur, c’est bien l’amitié

    Elle est beaucoup plus sincère et profonde

    Que la simple camaraderie

    Redonne souvent de l’espoir quand la vie est difficile
    L’amitié ne s’épanouit de respect et d’honnêteté
    Voila donc pourquoi, jouir de ton amitié
    D’une personne comme toi, est un immense privilège
    Que rien au monde ne serait remplacer
    Je te souhaite une belle et agréable journée ou soirée

    Je te fais de Gros Bisous.
