Love could conquer all, they said.

Love could rip apart your soul, they didn’t tell.

Love is the most beautiful feeling, they said.

Love can prick you like a thorn in the heart, they didn’t tell.

Love could take you on an adventurous ride, they said.

Love could crash and smash you down, they didn’t tell.

Love is all sparkling, glowing fairytale with a forever after, they said.

Love is dark, deep possessed with all the flaws like a demon crawling in the night, they didn’t tell.

And here we are entwining our lives around love.

To feel its warmth, peace and solace.

But, at the same time ignoring all its flaws, wilderness and darkness.

Not ready to accept love in all its glory.

Perhaps, this is why we feel so incomplete.

Having being in love, yet falling out of love!
