When You Love Someone

When You Love Someone

When you love someone

You live in the realm of fantasies

You create unimaginable pictures in your head

And long for them all to be real

Love gives you hope for the future

It refreshes you in the present

Makes the heartbreaks of the past forgettable

*

When you love someone

You can do anything

Believe a lie, deny the truth

You’ll do crazy things you can’t explain

You’ll shoot the moon and put out the sun

Love leaves you speechless, strikes you deaf

Yet you’ll hear when it speaks

It makes you feel you can really fly

Even whilst your feet are on the ground

*

When you love someone

You will feel it deep inside

Your heart speaks and your body listens

You take a leap of faith

You walk the narrow path of love

Embark on a journey to the unseen future.

You scale heights unthinkable,

You travel an extra mile,

You give it your all.

*

When you love someone

There’s no stopping you

You do all you can

You don’t think about only that which soothes your heart

You only crave for what pleases HER.

*

When you find love

You’ve found everything

You’ve found yourself

You’ve found light in her

The rain is gone and you can see clearly

You see a future that seemed impossible

Only because your heart is with your beloved

    When you love someone
    You give them power
    To use as they please
    Power they’d use to hurt you
    To make you suffer and bleed
    To make you squirm in pain
    Go insane, lose your brain.

    For this reason I’ve given up on love
    It’s too messed up an emotional for me to deal with

      Good lord Mitch. Who did a number on you?

      That’s not love you described there that’s slavery ?

      Love doesn’t keep scores
      Love is kind
      Love heals
      True love makes you feel like you can take on the world (and win)

      i think this is the best definition..love is just giving someone the tools to hurt you and basically ruin you..love should stop at being platonic..asides from agape love,the other type is just a sham..so, yeah, i relate to what you are saying @mitch

    When you love somebody, you write deep and unimaginable things that are ‘true’
