Oh to fall in love again. Love is the most fleeting emotion of all. I have fallen in love so many times in a quarter of lifetime. I fell in love with the taste of food as soon as I was born.
I fell in love with the sounds of breaking waves as the met the shore line at 5 years old. I fell in love with the smell of a chlorine pool at 10.
I fell madly in love with the sight of people being in love at about 13 because I envied them. At 16 , I fell in love with the touch of another.
See, love is one of the most powerful emotions out there.
People die and kill for things they love, become martyrs for a cause or drive a knife through their one true love because love, is terrifying. We all need it to succeed in life.
Somewhere there in our corner, shouting our name to get up when the world has beaten us down.
Love comes from family, a fleeting smile from a stranger, glances from an ex lover , touches from a current one.
We deny ourself the love another because we know how lonely it is when they take back. When the wake up one day and realize they no longer love us. Oh love.
What millions write poetry about, movies, books, and lay awake a night aching for. Oh love. How you have driven some to the brink of madness while saved others.
Your definition of love and mine are even the same. We all love the best way we know how. There is no manual for showing love or receiving it.
There is no guide to "our person " in life because we have multiple.
I hope that you fall in love with life , that the child in you never denies , that you never let the way someone loves you stop from loving all together.
I pray that you find unconditionally love . Someone that brings out every talent the world needs to see. People do crazy things for love.
Because one person lights our veins on fire and never told us how to extinguish it. I hope no one ever make you doubt love. Love is power no matter how terrifying it is. Love . Embrace it.
