Love is a strong emotion you hold for someone. True, deep love is something most people never find in life. Some may not realise it, some may not want to believe it, but this kind of love can be found in someone you like, just as much as it can be found in someone you hate. The person you love could hurt you, or make you cry, but throughout everything you're feelings remain just as strong. It's about going through all the good times as well as the bad times and feeling the same about them. You may not think about them ever second, talk to them every minute, or cry about them every day, but you know it's true love when you are able to put every bad or hurtful memory aside, and smile at how much they have made you a better person. Love can be confusing, heartbreaking, exhausting, exhilarating or any other emotion imaginable in the world. You may not be with them, but your wishes would be forever their happiness. This love is looking back at all memories, and still smiling at the bad ones, because even without them you couldn't imagine your life. It's a feeling you that is awoken deep within yourself. It's got nothing to do with religion, with gender, with race.. it's got nothing to do with time, with place or with age. You have reasons for liking someone, but for loving someone there is no reason. You love them because you are destined to, because something, underneath the artificial layer of materialism placed on us all by society, is telling us to...
You can't make someone love you.. you can love someone who doesn't love you.. you may not realise it's love until too late.. you cannot love without a whole lot of trust. You feel that way about someone for a reason. When they hold you, when they message you, when they come online, your heart just stops, and that feeling means something. You don't know exactly what, but it's there, that's it, that's love. You love them, they can hurt you, break your heart, but you know you could never let them go, or regret having them in your life. This person has the ability to turn your world upside down, and then inside out, putting you on the most thrilling ride of your life.. all the heartache would be worth it for one moment of that special feeling of love you share. The truth is, if you are ever privileged to find this love, treasure it, but don't suffocate it. And if you lose it, remember it for what it was, not for what it isn't anymore, smile for being able to ever have felt this way. Live your life as if it's worth something, if you were already stripped of everything you trusted then you don't have anything left to lose...
Love is strong yet delicate.
It can be broken.
To truly love is to understand this.
To be in love is to respect this.
