.. Because first time after 145 years he kissed the women he loved.

He's mesmerized by her.Damon was hurt and Katherine showed a brief flicker of remorse.She wanted him, but he wanted his pride even more.Even when Damon's mind wanders, it still goes back to Katherine. Although Damon now denies it, he was willing to die for Katherine in many circumstances.
Because the only thing that's kept him alive so long is knowing he'd get to see her again. Because loving someone for one hundred and forty-five years doesn't go away in months. Because he was willing to start everything over with her if she truly loved him. Because she risked a lot to save Damon's life.
The relationship between Damon and Katherine has been complicated since their meeting in 1864, when Katherine stayed in their estate and Damon was serving in the Confederate army. Damon fell deeply in love with Katherine, but unbeknownst to him, she'd also been seeing his brother Stefan, sparking the brothers' life-long rivalry. Their relationship ended when the town began eradicating the vampires. She was then taken away, and Damon and Stefan were shot by their own father while in an attempt to save her, causing the latters' turning into vampires. Damon since then, has spent the following 150 years obsessed with freeing her from her tomb, only to find out that she was never in it in the first place.
Katherine returns to his life. Damon initially acts flippant towards her, however she seduces him before telling him that she never loved him. Throughout the following seasons, Damon's feelings for Katherine have dwindled while Katherine still attempts to seduce him from time to time. It is later revealed that Katherine had in fact loved him and his brother, but would ultimately choose her own safety over them.
"Ship" names: Datherine, Kamon.
Words can be like knives
They can cut you open
And then silence surrounds you
and haunts you.
I wanna taste you again
Like a secret or a sin
Breathin’ out breathin in
There is no one else for me
Lost in a fog
You were the light that led me home.
Thought I was strong
Thought I could make it on my own.
And let me slide on in
you are my love you are my light
that always guides my way
through this black maze of flesh and pain.
If you want to see me fall.
Boy you’re so dope,
Your love is deadly.
They all think I have it all.
I have nothing without you.
All my dreams and all the lights mean
Nothing without you.
and holding them close, and hold them tight
I know the way to silently make you
smile with my eyes, when you’re trying to fight.
The less I give the more I get back
Oh your hands can heal, your hands can bruise
I don’t have a choice but I still choose you.
And you lean in for your last kiss
And who in this world could ask me to resist
Your hands cold as they find my neck
All this love that I’ve found I detest.
Your red eye sees no pain
Your slaps don’t stick
Your kicks don’t hit
So we remain the same.
the ways and means of getting in
Oh you were always my original sin
And tell me why,
I shudder inside,
every time we begin.
Never thought that we could break
Fall apart fade away
Is this what I think it is?
You run away crawl back inside
We used to be so fun and free
We used to think so much alike.
Runnin’ ‘round leaving scars
Collecting your jar of hearts
And tearing love apart.
From the ice inside your soul
So don’t come back for me
Don’t come back at all.
With rotten wood, it decayed from the start.
‘Cause you can’t find nothing at all,
If there was nothing there all along.
I’m no hero, guilty as charged, search and destroy.
Found my faith, living in sin,
I’m no Jesus, but neither are you, my friend.
These trials don’t prepare the air of love.
You’re not telling anyone about me,
And you shake and you bleed while I sing my song.
we both matter,
some call love a thief
but she’s my home
and she’s as much apart for this broken heart.
I’ll taste the devil’s tears
Drink from her soul
But i’ll never give up on you.
I’m not sorry it’s over
I’m not sorry there’s nothing to save.
