What is Love?

Love is the meaning of Life.
Love is what we live for.
Love inspires us.
Love drives us.
Love is what made us who we are.
It's the Love of Family.
It's the Love of Friends.
It's the Love of Humanity.

It's the Love of the special someone.
That Love triumphs above everything.

It's when you're together with the one you Love,
and everything else fades away,
even you,
and all that's left of you is your Love,
and the one you Love.

It's when you know you can do no wrong,
Because when you've made a mistake,
you know that she'll be there to support you,
hug you,
and make you feel better when you're down.

It's when you're angry at her,
but you still want to talk to her.
be with her,
and forgive her.

It's when you want to be with her when she's made a mistake,
when you want to be there for her, support her,
hug her.

It's when every single moment you spend with her
is a memory that will last a lifetime.

It's when all you think about,
every day, every hour, every minute, every second,
is how much you Love her.

It's when you go to bed at night,
anticipating that you'll be able to see her the next morning,
and just the sight of her makes your day,

It's when you wake up in the morning,
and even though you don't remember the dreams,
you know you dreamt of her.

It's when you have to go away for a while,
and your heart feels like it's fighting to get out of your chest,
to go back,
back to the one you Love.

It's when you feel like running outside,
and screaming at the top of your voice that you Love her.

It's when you wake up in the middle of the night,
and have that gut instinct that something bad happened.

It's when you're happy that the one you Love is happy.

It's when you've fallen, into the deepest depths of despair,
and Love is the lifeline which pulls you back.

It's when you care more about her, than yourself.

It's when your heart skips a beat when you know she's in danger.

It's when you would sacrifice anything, to be with her.

It's the strength of Love which can turn any nihilist, existentialist, or absurdist,
to see why life is worth living.

It's what can turn a psychopath into a normal human being.

What is Love?
Love is what we live for.
And I live for you.

A final afterthought:

Love is, when you've realised, that you're not the one for her, and you've accepted that fact, and you feel happy, when she's found happiness without you, and smile, that she'll be able to lead a happy life, because you know she deserves the best she can get out of this world, and you'll sacrifice anything to make sure she gets that.
This was completely spontaneous, wrote this in the DeviantArt notepad. I was chatting with someone, and we were talking about love, and she said "I'm all for that warm fuzzy feeling" and I thought, oh, it's so much more than that, and wrote this :)

Thank you for reading.

dedicated to my now ex ~obliteratedsoul -things were just too perfect to be true.... oh well...

I've decided to to add what others say about love :)
Submit your own!

:iconpetaldancer:"Love is when you can sit down when you are having a bad day, think about your loved one, and suddenly, your day just got better.

Love is something that cannot be explained in words, there is no word out there that could explain how much care is in their hearts."

:iconobliteratedsoul: "I think love is when you'd rather spend time with your love than eat chocolate.

I say that, because before I found the wonder that is love, I loved chocolate.
Now? Its just a friend."

:iconnakamura-sakura: "You would defend the one you love through thick and thin, no matter what. You would gladly take a bullet for the one you love, no question. You would die for the person you love."

:iconcherryjess: "Love is when silence is not an awkward moment but rather a blissful sound."

:iconaufsaibelle: "You know you're in love when you can't sleep at night because reality is finally better than your dreams..."

:iconxacidrefluxx: "Love is like riding a bike, sometimes you fall and get back up, sometimesyou lie there feeling sorry for yourself, sometimes you lie there laughing, sometimes you bring others down with you and sometimes you are just too hurt to even think of starting again."
"We come to love not by finding a perfect person, but by learning to see an imperfect person perfectly."

:iconkw0od: "Love is going through life being absolutely crazy and not being embarrassed because you're crazy together."

"Love is everything it's cracked up to be.That's why people are so cynical about it..It really is worth fighting for,risking everything for.And the trouble is,if you dont risk everything you risk even more."

"Love has no awareness of merit or demerit; it has no scale..Love loves;this is it's nature"

"Love is like violin.The music may stop now and then,but the strings still remains"

"To love is to suffer.To avoid suffering one must not love.But then one suffers from not loving.Therefore to love is to suffer,not to love is to suffer.To suffer is to suffer.To be happy is to love.To be happy then is to suffer.But suffering makes one unhappy.Therefore to be unhappy one must love,or love to suffer,or suffer from too much happiness.I hope your getting this done."

But what is it when, even though you know she doesn't love you, and she has happiness elsewhere, you still want her more than anything?
Is it just selfishness?

Love is when you let the person go, even though it hurts so much. It's when you do what is best for them, even though it might not be what you want.

Just a personal opinion.
