    Though the love still exists it has surely lost the sparkle that it previously had when it sprang at the heart's door. Excellent. (Report) Reply

    Love hinted at and hopefully received, enriching his senses. Then blowing cold. He is still hopeful but mixed with doubt and deep feeling of heartache and loss. No longer feeling the richness of the tingling a of shining new love. Thus feeling poor. Heartache and longing. (Report) Reply
