Everyone says that loves hurts, but that's not true. Loneliness hurts. Rejection hurts. Losing someone hurts. Everyone confuses these things with love but in reality...love is the only thing in this world that covers up all the pain and makes us feel wonderful again.
Love has an inherent sadness, and hurts for that very reason, and this is because most rational beings are perpetually aware that it is doomed to end horribly - there's no other way.
