The truth about love!

According to greek mythology, humans were originally created with 4 arms, 4 legs and a head with two faces. Fearing their power, zeus split them into two separate parts, condemning them to spend their lives in search of their other halves.
- Plato 

 The dictionary may not have words for love, but the Romans sure knew what they were talking about. It may be one elaborate fib, but i see truth in the depth of the stories. 

In this one preticular, it almost makes perfect sense. This piece is beautiful in that evolves from however u choose to interpret it. People are always looking for someone who they can connect with, beyond a level of just common interest. Someone who can share brain waves, to feel as if they are that one missing piece of uve been looking for your entire life. When they hurt u hurt, when thier happy it brings u joy. And it's not always that of a lover in which people find this one person. Sometimes it's a best friend, .... A brother, but when it is a lover it's never ending is always the best. 

Some people search forever, and find nothing. Because they are blinded by what is not. But needant worry because there is a next life time to try once more. Some find it early in life, and others late. 

But it is the joining of these two people that makes a life so fulfilling. Nobody wants to be alone. They want someone who understands them, not an exact replica of them, but someone who shares with them everything. Thought process, the same voice, essentially life in its most valuable form : love. They r the same person split in two, however not split equally usually, what ever one lacks in the other makes up for. It's a connection far beyond any physical or molecular level. 

To me it's almost as if to achieve the purest level of greatness, u must first find the one who will take great pleasure in helping u find it, and bask in the riches of togetherness. To find this, u must find them, and nothing worth anything is without struggle, without pain. To control and build upon your own self empowerment, u need them. For all those who choose a path of power, yet stand alone, come crashing down, only to shatter into tiny fragments of there own being. And when they gather those pieces, they will not all be found, so that even more of them will be lost. I cannot lose anymore pieces, for to many lost, would not be who i am anymore. 

Some might not feel it at first, but when they do realize they have found their missing link, every moment in this tiny world becomes the right moment. The cold, aching hole in your soul that has haunted u for so long, fills with warmth. And it is in this moment your heart takes its first real beat, and you feel truly alive.
