Love...so overrated!! Am I jilted...skewed...crazy? Perhaps, But at least I'm honest about it :-D
Love is this drag out, painful, distasteful and agonizing fight for your life. It leaves us spent, jaded and consumed but we continue in search of it. This elusive and all encompasing emotion that most of us never truly find. It holds us suspended in time with just a thread of sanity within our grasp. Through the years and contiuum it reaches in and clutches our hearts holding on for however long the brain decides to hold on....that is of course if the brain is involved at all. Most times, it is NOT!
We as humans with the inherent need to feel loved still wait for the validation of another soul. The need to have a tangible someone to make us feel whole. Even as children when we have an infinitesimal inkling of what Love feels like...we search for it. We search in the simplest places...but it isn't until we are older that we distort it and obliterate it making it indistinguishable; blurred and complicated.
Love might always leave you bleeding, trampled and violated but we still need it. Yes, even after all that I have said...we still need Love. It is part of our wiring as humans and we thrive with it.
Simply put...Love! Take a risk, bare your heart and when you find it hold onto it and make it yours. No one says it will be easy but when you have found that one person who is your other half, cherish them, show them that only because society dictates a day of "Love," does not mean that it shouldn't apply all other days of the year.
Love because the flowers will dry and the candy will vanish but the one who stays behind will always be there accepting you as you are.
Dedicated to the Love of my Life because I wouldn't be who I am without him. Happy 20th anniversary my love and may we have many, many more.
