The Wasted Stone

And I've seen what you make for money and I've seen what you do for fame. I've seen what you do to make people like you and I've seen what you swallow to ease the pain. I've heard what you say out of malice and I've heard what you spat out of spite.

But none of these things make you happy because not one was done for love.

a lot of people do these, but how can they still sleep soundly at night? guiltless, stoic, calculating.

wow...that just left me speechless!!
brilliant, once again Iain :D

money and fame don't really fit that void in our lives like love does.

Ouch.

In the defence of people like this (of which I am one) I just don't feel love all that often. Possibly it's a deficiency, I don't know.

This is exactly how he is.
And I'm not supposed to change who he is. I'm accepting who he is and walking away.
He has no idea what love is.

Which is how I know that I do.

And the time they spent making their lives into their mental picture of perfection only brings them closer to and end they never saw coming.

I read this 6 years ago, forgot it, and today I feel the urge to search for this "Wasted Stone" just to read it again.
thank you, this means so much for me.
