Something I've been feeling.

I say being in love is the most selfish thing a person can do.

And I won’t tell you that I didn’t do that because I did.

And I know a lot of people who say they are.

They may just not know what they are saying but it’s still selfish.

Being in love.

Loving someone is sweet and pure.

But being in love with someone; well that’s saying that you’re in love with love.

You never know what love truly is because it is invisible.

But we still believe in it.

See, love is like God.

You can’t see it, you can’t touch it, you can’t hear it, but you can feel its wrath.

We all want a nice kind of love.

You could slit my throat and with my last breath I’d apologize for getting blood on your shirt.

That love.

I don’t want high school love.

You know the type that only last for a couple months and then you get all melodramatic and make it into a huge dramatic mess when in all reality it’s not.

We want the type of love where you can grow old together.

You know, one of my favorite love quotes is: “Love is when my grandma had arthritis and couldn’t paint her nails…so my grandpa did it for her, even though he had arthritis too.”

That’s love.

I want true love.

Not internet love.

Not phone love.

Not anything like that.

I don’t believe in internet love anymore.

I did.

But not now.

It’s an illusion.

You’ve convinced yourself.

You can never truly love someone over the internet.

They may say sweet things and act like the most amazing person.

But until you hold that person in your arms; true love isn’t there.

I was a victim to it.

I know what it’s like.

And I can honestly say that it was a mistake.

The person wasn’t.

Just the action.

You can say that you love someone you never met.

But to know true love.

You must hold that person at least once before you make that decision.

Because deciding to soon is a big mistake.

Without knowing for sure.

You will let that delusional love rule your life.
