Love…

Love.

What is it?

Have you ever been in love?

Seen love?

Touch love?

Feel love?

Lost love?

Love.

That one word that we all yearn to hear, feel, and touch. One word that makes us all happy, sad, jealous, and angry. It comes in all shapes and forms, sometimes it is near us but we don’t see it because we take advantage of it. Just like how we don’t see our parents’ efforts, how we don’t feel what they feel when they scold us for our wrongdoings.

There are moments when we measure love by putting it on a price scale. Why does receiving an expensive gift makes one so happy? Does it ensure you, me, us that that person will stay with us until old and gray? Of course, to receive an expensive gift is not wrong, but the desire to always expect or ask for a luxurious gift does not equal love or make love any greater.

Love is powerful, but it can bring so much pain. To hear someone, say “…but I love you,” is the most beautiful thing because it makes us feel accepted despite our flaws and mistakes, but to hear them say “I love you, but…” is the most painful. Hearing those words, we know the ending is near and then we tried to fix our mistakes and flaws. Bargaining and making compromises, but there’s no stopping. When it ends, it ends because sometimes love is not meant to stay.

To lose a loved one forever is the most painful experience. It makes you upset, mad, and frustrated because you think of all these other possibilities but fails to see one other possibility. You pray and pray, tell yourself you’ll do better if the one person you love open his/her eyes only to witness his/her last breath. Then you scold yourself for ignoring death, being foolish to think it will never happen. Upset for putting your hopes up so high just at the sight of the tiniest improvement.

Love.

It is phenomenal.

We have all been in love at least once.

Seen love.

Touch love.

Feel love.

And lost love.

Love is endless.

One thought on “Love…

  1. Well said. I love how you set up the layout for questions and statements about love. It is the most craziest feeling ever because it can trigger all other sorts of other emotions and feelings. What you say in the 3rd paragraph is very true. To say “… but I love you” would make someone very happy because he/she is loved despite his/her flaws. To say “I love you, but ….” would make someone sad because he/she has flaws that cannot be accepted.

    The last paragraph hurts. People often ignore death. This is why I say if anyone is going to do any good deeds or treat any loved ones well, do it as soon as possible instead of later because we don’t know what tomorrow or the future will bring. Thank you for sharing!
