    Love to me is powerful.

    It's scary, especially when you resign yourself to never feeling loved. When you find it love takes a hold of you, it fills you and changes you and you never want it to stop. Love is deeply knowing that person, of seeing them truly and wanting to wrap them in your arms and never...

    Not An Expert

    My first, most recent, and only experience of love has left me with the following view... Love is not about the butterflies, or spending quality time together. Love is about having every reason in the world to hate someone, but still hoping that somewhere, they're smiling.
