what is love?

Posted in Uncategorized by gkhiangte on May 7, 2009

Is this what they call love?

When you ache so badly, it hurts so good

Is this what you call love?

When your heart breaks into a million pieces

Is this what you call love?

When you don’t care what people think

Is this what you call love?

When you can’t get what you want

Is this what you call love?

When you scream without a sound

Is this what you call love?

When the reason you love would never know

Is this what you call love?

When you feel like your heart has been stabbed with a sharp object

Is this what you call love?

When you listen to all the love songs you used to hate

Is this what you call love?

When you relate to all the songs

Is this what you call love?

When you love someone who can’t love you back

Is this what you call love?

When you let go of your stupid pride

Is this what you call love?

When you want to bleed yourself dry

Is this what you call love?

When you want more than you have

Is this love?

When you don’t want to let go

Is this love?

When you can’t quite explain how you feel

    some pains are more enjoyed than happiness….some moments are more precious than breath, and some defeats are more triumphant than victory

    dear ophmar,
    wat a rude shock to reality?..i was high up in the stratosphere.
    i guess i needed that. my god! i have to get up at 3 am to make baby formula?
    that means im in love?
    no i don’t want to be in love then…; )
    on a serious note, i know all of what you are sayin is true…its just so hard to accept.
    maybe im not love material..
    when you say..love is not jealous..doesnt it mean its going to be boring when youre lovely lady dont show any sign of jelousy or possessiveness at any point?
    im still a kid trying to see the more colourful brighter side of love..i guess
    but you start to make me wonder never the less.
    o i hate growing up in the real world!!!!@#@#$#%

    Unfortunately the answer to all ur queries is NO
    I like the post, have nothing against it found it poetic n romantic
    But don forget the measure of true love is found in the most basic place- The Good Book
    I Cor 13….when u say THIS is or I AM…patient, kind , (very imp) NOT JEALOUS then u can say its love
    And to quote from a beautiful song from Don Francisco “Love is not a feeling, its an act of ur will”
    Its not the romantic candlelit dinner, the flowers on valentine’s day or the hours u spend on the phone. Its when the baby cries at 3am and u get up instead of him/her to make the feed.
    Kan tlak tak duah chu le..hehe

    I can respect that.. I’ve seen people (younger and older) in abusive relationships yet can’t stay away from each other, others who break up and make up every other week, others who just cant help display their affection publicly and still others who’d rather keep it to themselves.. To them, they are deeply in love while to others, they may be overreacting a bit.. So, simply put, Love is relative.. 😛

    @notgood,
    for me, i want the whole roller coaster ride of wild crazy love and not some dull unexciting normal companionship. atleast not now. i have always suppressed my feelings and have always been afraid to show exactly how i feel. maybe i was too proud or scared. now, i think i should change my ‘love antics’ from a mild-hard-to-catch signals to a loud-colourful-hard to miss gestures.

    btw, don’t u think love can be an act/performance played out in the biggest stage, with different characters playing their roles to the tee? how each one plays his/her role would have to be analyzed with an open mind since no one can define someone else’s love. how can we say that this kind of love is the right kind of love or the wrong one or that it is just a fling? your infatuation can be my ideal love and my love can be your fling. so, everyone’s ‘play’ deserves an applause.

    well, thats how i feel in less than 160 words..haha..peace

    @aduhi, “And when you google his/her name just because seeing the name makes you smile inside”. just how many times have you googled his name? i love all the things u wrote. i feel like a fourth grader or somethin. i dont care if people say its just puppy love or infatuation or something like that. i know what i feel. hehe..

    When you burst with happiness and wants to tell the whole world about it
    When your friends avoid bringing your loved one’s name up in a conversation because they know they can never change the subject again
    And when you find every little excuse to say his/her name
    And when like a schoolkid you write his/her name on every available space
    And when you google his/her name just because seeing the name makes you smile inside
    And when you take innumerable love quizzes on the internet and feel happy when you get positive results
    And when you feel proud being seen together
    And when you feel every love song was written for you
    And when you feel every love song was written to spite you and mock you
    And when you feel you will never recover but miraculously you did and life becomes once again the way it was before … (I’ve heard something like this somewhere before, some movie dialogue, I’ll find out and put up a post)

    Being in love is highly overrated, sure its has its ups and downs, but its not as romantic as its made out to be in movies.. Love is to commit to make it work.. otherwise, its just a fling.. or at least, thats what I think..
    “When you want to bleed yourself dry”?? I think that would pretty much count as infatuation..

    thx imahruai
    i know i never believed in it before
    now i know how u guys must have felt
    maybe its god’s way of tellin me to ‘feel’
    this too shall pass and i will become a better person in the end

    My dear, I’m not an expert or a love-guru to give you answers to your questions but I agree with what you think might be LOve or it can also be just an infatuation. So dear, don’t rush and take time to reconsider it over and over. But one thing, Love always have hope from within. Make your own move to the right direction.

    I’m at least happy to hear these things coming from you……:-) esp.”when you let go of your stupid pride”. Best Luck 🙂
