What is love to you?
 
Love is:
the smell of a warm rainy day,
the texture of the lips from your first kiss
the first song you hear after losing your virginity
the first time you held a girl's hand
kissing for hours
crying together
unconditional, you can never fuck up too bad
the sun, beautiful but blinding,
getting drunk or high and laughing for hours with your friends
son
daughter
parent's passing away
the sound of the ocean
a blue blue sky
all you need
 
What a sweat thread this is.

I think it was Plato, it might have been Socrates, perhaps someone else knows?

Who said:

Love is the longing of the separate to be whole.

Or something like that, it works for me.

I found this on a website, and thought I'd share it:


On Life and Love

It hurts to love someone and not be loved in return, but what is more painful is to love someone and never find the courage to let that person know you really care.

Maybe God wants us to meet a few wrong people before meeting the right one so that when we finally meet the right person, we will know how to be grateful for that gift.

Love is when you take away the feeling, the passion, and the romance in a relationship and find out you still care for that person.

A sad thing in life is when you meet someone who means a lot to you, only to find out in the end that it was never meant to be and you just have to let go.

When the door of happiness closes, another opens but oftentimes we look so long at the closed door that we don't see the one which has been opened for us.

The best kind of friend is the kind you can sit on a porch and swing with, never say a word, and then walk away feeling like it was the best conversation you've ever had.

It's true that we don't know what we've got until we lose it but it is also true we don't know what we've been missing until it arrives.

Giving someone all your love is never an assurance that they'll love you back! Don't expect love in return; just wait for it to grow in their heart but if it doesn't, be content it grew in yours.

There are things you'd love to hear that you would never hear from the person whom you would like to hear them from, but don't be so deaf as not to hear it from the one who says it from his heart.

Never say good-bye if you still want to try -- never give up if you still feel you can go on -- never say you don't love a person anymore if you can't let go.

Love comes to those who still hope although they've been disappointed, to those who still believe although they've been betrayed, and to those who still love although they've been hurt before.

It takes only a minute to get a crush on someone, an hour to like someone and a day to love someone -- but it takes a lifetime to forget someone.

Don't go for looks; they can deceive. Don't go for wealth; even that fades away. Go for someone who makes you smile because it takes only a smile to make a dark day seem bright. Hope you find the one that can make you smile.

There are moments in life when you miss someone so much that you just want to pick them from your dreams and hug them for real! Hope you get your dream of that special someone.

Dream what you want to dream; go where you want to go; be what you want to be, because you have only one life and one chance to do all the things you want to do.

May you have enough happiness to make you sweet, enough trials to make you strong, enough sorrow to keep you human, enough hope to make you happy and enough money to buy me gifts.

Always put yourself in others' shoes. If you feel that it hurts you, it probably hurts the other person, too.

A careless word may kindle strife; a cruel word may wreck a life; a timely word may level stress; a loving word may heal and bless.

The beginning of love is to let those we love be just themselves, and not twist them with our own image -- otherwise, we love only the reflection of ourselves we find in them.

The happiest of people don't necessarily have the best of everything; they just make the most of everything that comes along their way.

Happiness lies for those who cry, those who hurt, those who have searched, and those who have tried, for only they can appreciate the importance of people who have touched their lives. Love begins with a smile, grows with a kiss and ends with a tear.

The brightest future will always be based on a forgotten past, you can't go on well in life until you let go of your past failures and heartaches.

When you were born, you were crying and everyone around you was smiling. Live your life so that when you die, you're the one who is smiling and everyone around you is crying.

love left me

i can't tell you how or why
or how it felt
in relation to today
only numb to feelings
alive on imitation

I was there once
i could be back again

someday

So true. :heart:

Yes.

Thank you for posting these ABEL.
 
That was really cool Abel, thanks for sharing!

So true. I was with my girfriend a long time before I got the courage to tell her that. Before that, it was eating me up inside and I felt like I was lying to her, and i found it even more difficult to express affection. But still, it's ood I waited, because she's the type to not rush things, and it was nice to be able to hear it back truthfully. When the barrier was broken though I cried out of joy, which is a strange feeling, but one that's come a lot these days.

Right now though my love is a strange love, yet still very much present.

Awesome feeling!

I can relate to this! incredible!

SO true!

A smile can always brighten your day, right Sicy?

Dream what you want to dream; go where you want to go; be what you want to be, because you have only one life and one chance to do all the things you want to do.

Never hold back! My dad always told me experience new things. If you have enough desire you can make it happen.

The beginning of love is to let those we love be just themselves, and not twist them with our own image -- otherwise, we love only the reflection of ourselves we find in them.

Yep! Never try to change someone. After all, it's that person you fell in love with!

:yes:

When you were born, you were crying and everyone around you was smiling. Live your life so that when you die, you're the one who is smiling and everyone around you is crying.

Live baby Live!

wow
I've always wanted to be able to describe things as effectively as that.

I relate to everything you've said.

the worst thing is when you fall in love with someone but you don't get anything in return but sympathy and well-wishing.
Its punishment for me, but I've fallen so far for her that nobody can reach me to pull me back.

And I keep inflicting this punishment on myself; I keep hoping away...I don't even want to begin to think she won't be around in my life in 10 years.
 
[color=royal blue]Love is a many splendored thing. Love lifts us up where we belong. ALL YOU NEED IS LOVE.

Please don't start that again.

All you need is love.
All you nee--

*gets dragged back to PLEBA*

Love is patient, Love is kind, It does not envy, it does not boast, It is not proud, It is not rude, It is not self-seeking, It is not easily angered, It keeps no record of wrongs.

Love does not delight in evil, but rejoices with the truth.

Love always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.

Love bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things.

Love never ends.

- Corinthians 13 : 4 - 8 -


What a nice thread :sad:
 
Not being much a of a poet myself ... I love how Kahlil Gibran writes about love

THEN said Almitra, Speak to us of Love.

And he raised his head and looked upon
the people, and there fell a stillness upon
them. And with a great voice he said:

When love beckons to you, follow him,
Though his ways are hard and steep.

And when his wings enfold you yield to him,
Though the sword hidden among his pinions
may wound you.

And when he speaks to you believe in him,
Though his voice may shatter your dreams
as the north wind lays waste the garden.

For even as love crowns you so shall he
crucify you. Even as he is for your growth
so is he for your pruning.

Even as he ascends to your height and
caresses your tenderest branches that quiver
in the sun,
So shall he descend to your roots and
shake them in their clinging to the earth.

Like sheaves of corn he gathers you unto
himself.

He threshes you to make you naked.

He sifts you to free you from your husks.

He grinds you to whiteness.

He kneads you until you are pliant;

And then he assigns you to his sacred
fire, that you may become sacred bread for
God's sacred feast.

All these things shall love do unto you
that you may know the secrets of your
heart, and in that knowledge become a
fragment of Life's heart.

But if in your fear you would seek only
love's peace and love's pleasure,
Then it is better for you that you cover
your nakedness and pass out of love's
threshing-floor,
Into the seasonless world where you
shall laugh, but not all of your laughter,
and weep, but not all of your tears.

Love gives naught but itself and takes
naught but from itself.

Love possesses not nor would it be
possessed;
For love is sufficient unto love.

When you love you should not say,
"God is in my heart," but rather, "I am
in the heart of God."

And think not you can direct the course
of love, for love, if it finds you worthy,
directs your course.

Love has no other desire but to fulfill
itself.

But if you love and must needs have
desires, let these be your desires:

To melt and be like a running brook
that sings its melody to the night.

To know the pain of too much tenderness.

To be wounded by your own understanding
of love;
And to bleed willingly and joyfully.

To wake at dawn with a winged heart
and give thanks for another day of loving;
To rest at the noon hour and meditate
love's ecstasy;
To return home at eventide with gratitude;
And then to sleep with a prayer for the
beloved in your heart and a song of praise
upon your lips.
