    I didn't realize how much I loved her until she rejected me, after she had fallen in love with someone else. The pain seemed unbearable. I lost weight, I was sick. And this happened after 27 years of marriage with this women. I was willing to give anything I had just to have her again; to make it like it was before. She said our relationship was like humpty dumpty. I could not accept it.
    And now, 15 years later, her we are still living in the same house together. She was right, it is like humpty dumpty, who could not be put together again.
    Only Love can break your heart.

    One great old enduring and most truthful songs to get high and stoned with from the great NEIL YOUNG, that's about the pain of love, especially when being cut deeply by the one[s] closer to you that you knew and know in your heart and soul you truly loved, who unfortunately betrayed you or abandend you in the end for whatever reason, that's when you feel the pain of ''only love can break your heart'' and only love can break you ''down'', that can take you back to your younger innocent self as the friend, who's actually you that always loved and believed in love, and now feels the pain of ''only love can break your heart'' and who's now in need and looking to be rescued or saved from ''the down'' he knows.
