Music Share: Falling in Love in Hopeless Places

Michelle’s comments regarding a relationship she had reminded me (as I commented) of my lengthy relationship with my daughters father.  Oh how I loved that man! I suppose part of me still does and always will. The memories are bittersweet. I was so entangled with him, for so long, our relationship impacted many aspects of my life for better and for worse.  What a story I have there! (Perhaps some day I will find a way to share the intensity of that relationship and still respect him and our daughter. One can hope. It is a good story, a tragic love story.). I find it interesting that it is because I found a man who loves me, truly, that I am able to finally deal with the feelings that linger from bdad. My husband and I talk about it so openly, candidly, and it is good. Good for me. Good for us.

The song playing over and over on my iTunes lately also reminds me of my daughters father. We definitely fell in love in a hopeless place.

Sharing the song/video as a) it is rather catchy, as in you can dance to it and b) it’s rather sad when you watch the video. I relate.

The emotion, the destruction, the highs, the lows, the need, the want, the anger, the pulling and pushing away.

Definitely found love in a hopeless place.
