Have you ever been in love? Horrible isn't it? It makes you so vulnerable. It opens your chest and it opens up your heart and it means that someone can get inside you and mess you up. You build up all these defenses, you build up a whole suit of armor, so that nothing can hurt you, then one stupid person, no different from any other stupid person, wanders into your stupid life... You give them a piece of you. They did'nt ask for it. They did something dumb one day, like kiss you or smile at you, and then your life isn't your own anymore. Love take hostages. It gets inside you. It eats you out and leaves you crying in the darkness, so simple a phrase like "maybe we should be just friends" turns into a glass splinter working its way into your heart. It hurts. Not just in the mind. It's a soul-hurt, a real gets-inside-you-and-rips-you-apart pain. I hate love.

PS: Hoje to com preguiça de escrever/pensar então vai sair isso daí mesmo, que apesar de ser um ponto de vista que eu acho foda sobre o amor, não é o mesmo ponto de vista que o meu.
Só pra constar, Neil Gaiman é um dos maiores escritores de Graphic Novels (Histórias em Quadrinhos, ou simplesmente HQs se preferirem) que existem... HQs deixaram de ser coisas infantis tem muito tempo.
