Rate both the essay and poem out of ten, critism is always appreciated.
Love. One word that can cause so many emotions. Emotions such as happiness, pain, peace, others. But what does love really mean? I searched inside myself and through different peoms that described the author’s perceptions and feelings on love to understand the true meaning, the true purpose of love.
We have all been in love, or at least thought we have. But, is it simply and emotion, nothing more? Love demonstrates two feelings that are nearly uncompareable. The first, which is found when you first find true love, is happiness. This great feeling of acceptance, and longing for on another creates a great power that surrounds you, making you nearly invincible. Nothing can bring you down from this “high”, but soon enough another feeling comes into play, the second, the feeling of loneliness caused by lost love. Thoughts begin to overwelm you. You think to yourself, what did I do, am I not good enough, why not? These thoughts that cause insecurity, depression, followed by a state of extreme loneliness. What power love has, it must be more than an emotion to such control over you life.
Love defeats all things, even death. It can change a person in many ways, for instance, a person with severe drug addictions may be able to easily through these problems aside for love. Or maybe just the opposite, a person may start doing drugs if thier love encouraged said person to do so. Love can change people, for better of for worse, it controls all things, wielding unmatched power.
I searched deep inside myself to find a way to describe Love, and learned it to be more than just an emotion. With it’s incredible power, it controls descisions, and lives. After my study, I found that love can mean many things to different people, all I can tell you is My Comprehension of love. Love is standing behind someone in thier darkest hour, its dying for the person you care for. Love is eternal bliss, and internal pain. It is acceptance, it is being all alone. Love is everything you can and cannot see. To find love, you must look in a mirror and deep inside yourself you will see what love holds for you. Deep underneath the skin, a defintion of love lies. Deep inside us all.
Love is bliss, undesribable, evernescant
Grasping it is harder then catching the wind, though you feel it.
You always feel it, flowing through your entire body, surrounding your soul.
But like the wind, love flows away from you always.
I see it in her eyes, but does she, can she?
Hope she sees it, hope she feels it
Hope that I can feel it.
After she has broken my heart into pieces, Can I ever feel that sweet taste of love again?
My mind fogs with an overwelming nostalgia for the past.
Of holding her in my arms, of the taste of her lips
The feeling of acceptance,
My life is a broken mirror, pieces of my shattered heart lie on the cold stone floor.
I stare at that mirror, longing for the past, it hauntingly laughs as it catches my fallen tears.
Now I am truly forgotten,
