A friend of mine asked me to define love, or rather, what love was to me. What I thought was going to be a simple answer turned out to be far more complex. Enjoy.

The definition of LOVE
Love:
n.
1. A deep, tender, ineffable feeling of affection and solicitude toward a person, such as that arising from kinship, recognition of attractive qualities, or a sense of underlying oneness.
2. A feeling of intense desire and attraction toward a person with whom one is disposed to make a pair; the emotion of sex and romance.
3.
a. Sexual passion.
b. Sexual intercourse.
c. A love affair.
4. An intense emotional attachment, as for a pet or treasured object.
5. A person who is the object of deep or intense affection or attraction; beloved. Often used as a term of endearment.

it is
"More than words"
"Your Guardian Angel"
"It's oh so quiet"
and
"A broken Hallelujah"

It's
Passionate,
Sadistic,
completely insane,
lacking all rational and reasonable thought
violently happy,
twisted,
cruel,
stunning,
blinding,
addicting.

It's
intangible,
held by the world,
invisible,
seen by all.


It's
how you make me smile when no one's looking,
how you make me cry when everyone's eyes are on us,
how you make me feel like the only woman in the world,
how you make me feel like every woman on earth,
and
how you spin me so hard I get dizzy
when I'm standing very still

It's
my yearning,
my craving,
my salvation,
and
my ultimate poison.

But most importantly
It is
you.
