I wrote this back in January, and I used some parts as excerpts in some of my recent work. Decided to post it here, because why the heck not? :)

Maybe love is more than just an emotional bond. Maybe love can just never be truly defined, it is too vast and conceptual for our incredulous minds.

There's love that's the heart's grieving, an unrequited addiction that tears its flesh apart, and turns it into a beautiful, abstract painting of pain.

There's love that's like a candle by a windowsill. A flame that is young and naive, cupped between two hands against the bitterness of the outside. Time passes, the hands eventually let go, and the little flame is to be snuffed.

There's love that's not love at all. A binding contract of possession, an unruly insanity wrapping two souls in chains. One holds the key to the leaden lock, but refuses to let go. Their soul mate is a bird trapped in their cage.

Maybe our image of a flame that burns forever, of two birds flying into the sunset, of hearts that are secure, not scarred, is just a fantasy, the spirit's yearning poured into a glass of whiskey.
