On broken heart

You lost faith in the human spirit, you walk around like a ghost.
Your star-spangled heart took a train for the coast.
When you shine you're a hilltop mansion, so how'd you lose the light?
Was it blown by the wind in the still of the night?
We're up against the wall. Up against the wall, there's something dying on the street.
When they knock you down, you're gonna get back on your feet.
When they break your heart, when they cause your soul to mourn,
Remember what I said 
Boy you was a battle-born
{The Killers - Battle Born}

Once I was told that to forgive is not to forget. It's about to have someone's position in your heart the same as before your heart's been shattered. That you can think of that person without the reminder of pain lingers in your soul. That in forgiveness, you let your heart to trust again. And of course, to let yourself have that courage to love again. To love without the hurt or fear, in your heart.


  1. The heart is the most resilient organ, in my humble opinion. It can be broken into a thousand pieces, yet still have the capability to love again and again. It's rather beautiful when you think about it.

  2. Beautifully said. I always try to keep my trusting heart, no matter what happened. Sure that isn't always easy. :) Hope you are having a good week, Niken! <3

  3. We all have to try and find love in our hearts, even when we are broken. Hard sometimes, we are only human and beautifully flawed. But love, love and love again Niken xxx
