    Love Is A Lie

    Ever heard the expression "the best way to lie is to believe the lie yourself"? Yeah well, that's what love is. When someone says they love you, they really don't mean it. They're just simply believing a lie they've been telling them self. Ever wonder what happens when you "fall...

    Love Is Dangerous

    Love is supposed to be the most powerful thing on this planet. But it seems to be something that makes people act irrationally, act against their better judgement, look past many flaws and do horrible things  all in the name of love. How many wars have been fought all...
