“Her heart withdrew into a safe which I didn’t have the combination to”

I heard this quote recently; it was spoken by a man that helped stop the Vietnam War. He risked his life and the welfare of his family by disclosing top secret documents to the public. He used the quote to describe his fiancées reaction to all the uproar and publicity suddenly surrounding them.

I have had the exact same feeling, experienced under very different circumstances. I think the words illustrates the helplessness and frustration one feels at that moment. Also knowing that I am the reason for it, for her pain, the one I love more than anything, how could I hurt her so much?
