Before it ends

Sometimes, you need to know, to really believe in your heart, that no effort ever goes to waste. That all your reassurances and all your kindnesses have not been for naught. Especially the love that you pour into someone else. Someone who let all that love slip over their skin. To paraphrase Def Leppard, where is that place, that place where love goes after it dies?

Tell me, do you believe that good things happen to good people? And that it all evens out in the end? Do you?

Well, I did, too.

Good things to good people? Always? No.

Even out? Yes. Not because of God or Destiny. But overwhelming inevitability. And perhaps, Guilt :P

Yeah, I think you're right. On both counts. ;)

I don't believe good things happen to good people - I just believe, things, whatever may be, happen.

Where does love go when it dies? Maybe it does not go anywhere. Maybe, unlike the believers in us, it has no god, and in having no god, dies an utter, ceaseless death.

Shankar, that is one helluva depressing thought! Seriously!

soin, it matters to me. I'd like to think I'd lived a worthwhile life and not died off without, you know, some kind of retribution. Maybe I'm just asking for way too much!
