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.

EDIT
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.

When I first saw the title, I was like "This is gonna be silly..."

But like the girl I am, I read it anyway.

...

This totally blew my mind.

I've always felt that I should write these feelings down, but I could never find the words. I'm so glad you could.

My definition of love (excuse my lack of flow):
Love is when you think of every possible worst-case scenario of him leaving you, but when you finally see him again, only the time you have left seems to matter, because it will seem like years everytime he's not there.

Every blink takes too long and every second goes too fast.

Love is when every moment counts and your smile is at it's most gorgeous, because it's mirrored on his face.

I would jump in front of a bullet for the person i love..... but what happens when they dont love you back...
especially if they are ur best friend but are dating another girl.

Love is a passion
Love makes you do stupid things
You cant stop love
Doesn't it sound a lot like hate?

The whole of the poem is explicisitlly true, but those are my fave parts of this, they really get the emotion across

Well done this is very very raw. Faved. ^^

"Love is the realization that your happiness isn't as important to you as you though it was. Someone else's happiness is vital to your own. Even if they are happiest with someone else."

That's my view anyway.

This is really beautiful, I adore this to no end!

When you lay in bed
Inches apart
Face facing another

When you taste her morning breath
Her lungs to your lungs
From your lungs to hers

When you lay and seek
In eyes of her splendid sunrise
Searching her book of beauty

When you shakedown its pages
You shake further
Further down

When you see a blur for her face
Eye to eye
Transfixed you find your lover

When you revel in the heat
From the sheets
Made in the night past

When you move your hand further
Gliding her perfect template
She glides yours too

When you lean forward
Inches become thou
One skin from two

When the tongues touch
When the minds merge
When your sights converge

When you know you don't love her
But for that one second you do

When you know you love the other
But for that one second you don't

When you know the other loves another
In that one second you grant your defeat

To me, this is what my love is

Love is not just passion. Yes, love is sometimes influenced by passion, but love goes much, much deeper than that.

Love is the most powerful emotion ever, seconded only by the menacing HATE.

I define love like this: 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.

Love is casually tossed around by stupid people who think they know what love is. No. Those ... shall I say ... tarts, moan into a guy's ear that they love him because they had a good shag or whatever. That is so obscene. The only exception to this is if the person is absolutely completely wasted, and even that isn't entirely acceptable.

But love is not just about caring. Loving someone can also mean loving them so much yet knowing that they don't want you and it would never work, so one helps the one they love by trying to move on, even though it is heartbreaking.

But love is not just about boyfriends and girlfriends: let us not forget love for our families! Your family will support you through good and bad and the ugly, no matter what, if they are decent.

Very true and wonderful comment. Real deep true complete loyal love, the person cant live without the one they love, their bond, who they are in their life. Absolotely noone else is that person to them or can ever be, and they love that person so much its painful. The words I love you are tossed around like garbage most of them time x-x
