Hive Open Mic ( #openmic ) is a global community celebrating live music on Hive. Each week is a new event, encouraging musicians to share songs with an international audience.
"Love Hurts" is this week's Hive Open Mic theme, which brings to mind a widely celebrated symbol of the pain and pleasure that love brings: roses. Roses come with thorns and petals, and these extremes are comparable to the highs and lows that come with romance. Roses are often given as a romantic gesture, in fact, which furthers the knowing and tolerance of the hurt.
In this case, I'm talking about romantic love, as opposed to unconditional love. Romantic love is conditional. Romantic love presents to new possibilities to grow, blossom, and die to self and merge in oneness with another, or else nothingness, along with the vulnerability, the crush, the awe, and the cycles of change. By contrast, unconditional love is a steady, constant "Home" feeling, with zero risk and total acceptance. If romantic love is a rose, then unconditional love is an eternally flourishing garden.
This song speaks to the fragility of romantic love. Because romantic love requires a delicate touch, it asks for sensitivity, sweetness, and lightness, or else distance. Myself, I am exploring romantic love in my life in recent times, and this song arrived a few months ago, when I felt the sting of sadness for love lost. True love, pure love, is not possibly lost, of course, but in my experience romantic love is fleeting.
In fact, the lady I love is overseas at the moment. After six months of profound connection, we are suddenly entirely disconnected. The feeling of abandonment is that very thorn I'm speaking of in this song. That's why love hurts to me right now.
I wonder if you can handle it
I warn you I have my thorns
I show my petals only when I open up
Be sweet to me honeybee
Or leave me in my element
Hive Open Mic - Week 118 is underway right now, with the current theme: “Love Hurts." We introduce new themes every Sunday, inviting musicians to share a common current. Musicians always have full freedom to bring whatever music feels inspired in the moment. There is still time to jump in and enjoy this week's Hive Open Mic event!
Those lines says everything we need to know. Love is never a smooth sailing and unconditional love is absolutely true and without conditions...it loves in spite of it all.
You delivered your song so well and I would come to you for lessons on the guitar 🥰🥰🥰🥰🥰🥰🥰
Thanks for resonating with me here. I'm so glad we have this community to get to know each other through the songs we share.
Absolutely. I love this amazing community. So many talents on display and so many songs being introduced and given due recognition too. Thank you so much 🤗🤗🤗🤗
My dear friend @cabelindsay
Beautiful song , very deep and accurate reflection on love.
I can tell you that I know what you feel, it is a difficult and painful situation.
But dear friend I can tell you that finally the best is what happens even if you can't see it at the moment. 🌼🧘🏽🙏💖🌷🎶💐
I send you a hug full of music and good vibes, I hope that all that music and art inside you, tucks you in and helps you to lighten the load, to focus your compass again, I am sure that when the time comes it will show you the right path.
Ah, I feel the sisterly love in your words, yes, thank you for sending me such a comforting message.
The lyrics are worded and full of content.I so much admire your height of creativity and passion @cabelindsay. well done and do have a wonderful moment
Thank you, my friend. Feels good to express in this way, with energy and artistry. I'm glad we can witness each other, and receive the gifts of our mutual admiration.
Same here I'm glad as well. Thank you for bringing this initiative to limelight @cabelindsay. You're a rare Gem.🍷🍾
Great romantic singer songwriters are invading Hive tks
I think you're right. Sometimes for me the lines blur between virtual love and physical love - I find myself having some serious feelings even through the subtle vibrations and faraway connections that music makes real.
Bravo brother!. I have always enjoyed how you express yourself through the weekly theme and I really like that this time you focused on roses to explain romantic love. This flower has always been very important in my 5 year relationship, just today was a day where some of those thorns have wreaked havoc, and I just realize how fragile it can be. Yet there are more petals and they have more strength. I think it is up to us to keep watering the roses, even though love hurts.... I loved your energy in this song, I felt sadness in its melody and melancholy in your singing. You are strong Cabe, and for me you are a great example as a man. A hug for you in spite of the distance...
Feeling your hug, brother, thank you. I'm grateful to receive your warm, encouraging words. Nice of you to share about the thorns in your life too, relating with me. Glad I'm not alone in that. Wishing you abundant petals!

Dear Brother yes, love hurts, I think it usually happens to me too that my last loves have been fleeting, we have nothing left to do but wait Cabe, possibly the universe prepares us for a being too special, who knows, but I trust it 🙏!!!!
Your definition of both loves could not be more accurate, certainly the roses represent the alpha and omega of a relationship... ah Brother love and its things 😕, in fact you reminded me of a phrase of the great Oscar Wilde when he said: "The mystery of love, is greater than the mystery of death"... no doubt about it!!!!!
I enjoyed listening to you in spite of the thorns that accompany your song, I always wish the best for you, don't stop dreaming about love, don't worry about it either, when you least think it, that soul will come to you that will make your days the best of your life again 🙌😀💛!!!!
I love you Brother 💖... You Rockkk!!! 👊😎🔥🎙️🎸🎶❤️🌟🍻💥💫💯
Lots of love right back your way, brother. It's so nice of you to relate with me and give me such a generous share-back.
I totally agree with you, romantic love is very fragile and delicate, it seems that at any moment it can break under certain circumstances, while unconditional love is stable and withstands everything.
As always I enjoy your original compositions and your authenticity.
Hugs full of light and love!
Hugs! 💛🌟 Thank you, sisterlove. Happy to connect with you.
Excellent, one is left wanting to hear more.👏👏👏
I sure appreciate that. Thank you. I had the pleasure of playing this song with some other musicians recently and we extended it as a nice long jam.
Wow, what beautiful text and song!
You are truly the messenger of love! 😀
I hope, you won't be disconnected for very long.
Thank you, friend. I'm grateful that my share resonates with you. So glad we have this space to connect through our creative expressions.
And all across many, many borders! 🙂
You are so talented @cabelindsay, the playing, the lyrics, your voice, simply amazing!!!
Aw, thank you, sister. You're so kind. I suppose it makes sense my singing is improving since I have such incredible vocalist to learn from, including you.
That is so sweet but I can't take that, I am learning instead.
I always enjoy listening to you @cabelindsay
And your interpretation of this week's theme with this song is so perfect.
Your creativity as a song writer is absolutely fantastic.
Am sending lots of hugs😊😊 and love.
Thanks for your sweet note, I feel you. Lots of love right back atcha.
This is beautiful man... performance was✨
Amigo @cabelindsay tu voz es hermosa y tienes ese don de transmitir ese sentimiento al cantar y llegar a los que te escuchamos, me encantan tus post y videos, mejor es lo que pasa amigo Dios te premiará con ese amor profundo que te mereces, un gran abrazo 🤗🎵🎶🌟✌️🎤🎤🎸💙💜💚💞
Your voice and guitar make a perfect duet. I admire all those musicians who can sing and play at the same time. I really congratulate you for such a nice job brought this week to the Hive Open Mic.
Thank you in advance for the support you give to all of us.
A big hug.
hello brother what an excellent song always with that naturalness and harmony that is perceived in your musical themes, very good video brother everything was very great greetings and blessings for you
I really like the approach you took to this week's topic my friend Cabe. That is precisely what love is all about, the sweet and the bitter, the petals and the thorns. Nothing is perfect, but there is beauty in imperfection. Only with the power of our mind can we separate the feelings and look back with melancholy, but without regrets.
You are a unique artist I enjoy your performance ❤
