If you ask me what it is love
What do you want me to tell you?
Do you want to know the way it feels or what it does to you?
For the way it feels, people can tell you things or you can read stories but
You can’t feel love till you feel it.
As for what it does to you,
This is no easy task.
It can envelope you and consume you,
It can elevate you or keep you on your knees,
It can empower you or destroy you,
It does many things to you,
I can’t even begin to explain what it has done to me.
But I’ll tell you what,
It’s worth it,
Whatever love I had or have,
I always have someone that loves me,
And when I’m in love, I fall in love.
Deep under into its sweet abyss,
Energy that just runs through your body and shakes your soul,
Something that makes you forget small things,
Such as the hate, sadness, pain and anger.
You grow into something that comes from nothing and is filled with this thing called love.
You look past imperfections and materialistic objects,
Into what’s actually real and pure,
The core of your being,
That which makes you shine and bright,
Once you’ve loved,
You learn that there’s a choice of how to live and react to situations,
Making mistakes is what will get you to love,
For that which is not normal,
Puts you in a space of multiple possibilities,
And opening your mind to the unknown,
You’ll learn love in ways you can’t imagine.
And in that you are different,
Not a different person, but in fact your true self.
When you are the person you are inside but able to live it outside,
Not that you don’t normally,
But you are your most complete self, when you’re comfortable in your own skin.
Doing the things that matter,
Rather than worrying about all the little things that prevent you from true potential.
Love pushes you forward from what you wanted into something unexpected.
And isn’t that beautiful.
I want to continue,
I know what I feel and can express my true self to you,
But you’ll have your own experience at it.
This is one piece of script in a book that has no ending till you die and not even then.
Find yourself in love,
And let it take over you,
Give in order to receive,
And don’t expect it back
So you lose no love,
And have no motive to love,
Instead love just to love,
