we know not what love truly is we see love on valentines cards rom-coms and romance novels but that is not all that true love is, because what happens to the lovers after the last page? after the credits roll? when the card is shut? love is messy. love is hard, love struggles. what we do know about love is this: love is beauty, love is determination. love is a roller coaster of good and bad and we are both the operators and along for the ride all at once.
