You can love someone so deeply that just the very touch of their hand can send you to places that you never knew existed. You can love someone so deeply that just the thought of them not being there can wreck an entire day. You can love someone so deeply that the fear of losing them to anything is equal to the thought of walking to the gallows. And you can love someone so deeply that wherever they choose to go, you blindly follow.
I admit I am not the best when it comes to showing love. I tread lightly, when sometimes I shouldn't. I know that telling someone you love them isn't always enough. At least not for everyone. Some people see the little things but then again, some don't. Love is hard work and sometimes I can make it hard for someone to love me. But I also believe that if you truly love someone, you love them for their flaws as much as their strengths. They are who they are and you can't change them.
No one ever looks for sadness, hatred and loathing. We search for happiness and along with happiness comes love. They walk hand in hand in our world. They belong together. They can sometimes be one and the same. Neither is ever mistaken for anything else when you feel it. It is what it is and it is beautiful.
If we are lucky enough, at some point in our lives we find it and are able to bask in the total innocence and unwavering beauty of it. If we aren't then life can be a cesspool of misery.
I heard it said once that there are three people in this world that you are truly compatible with and that those three individuals can be looked at as your soul mate. Do soul mates actually exist? Maybe. No one really knows for sure. It's like searching for Bigfoot. Some people are convinced he's out there and some are convinced he isn't. I'm on the fence because there isn't any hard nosed scientific proof either way. Really, who knows for sure?
The idea of soul mates is what keeps some people going. Maybe those people have just gotten lucky... or found the ultimate curse. I imagine falling in love with someone that is so utterly compatible to you would literally suck the air from the lungs if they were to ever leave your world. People can die of a broken heart. From loneliness. From being alone.
I love you is one of the most powerful sentences in the world. It is misunderstood and manipulated. It is said with an ulterior motive behind it. It is said when the understanding of what it truly means isn't known.
Love is tricky. Love is dangerous. Love is all that is good in this world. If you love someone, you know it. At some point in time... you just know it.
Happy Wednesday my friends...
