What is Love?
by The Tattooed Mermaid
Age Group: Adult
Love is a slow kiss good night. It is anticipation. Love is flirting outrageously and still knowing that the person at your side is not obligated to do anything. It is respect. Love is an imperfection in yourself that does not bother you. It is acceptance. Love is passing up an opportunity because the time is not right yet. It is patience. Love is a back massage that starts at the hairline and ends at the insoles. It is exploration. Love is not having to say "let's make love" just because you know the other person wants to. It is understanding. Love is being given an honest chance to say "no" even when you feel obligated. It is consideration. Love is both of ou remembering to use protection. It is responsibilty. Love is telling someone you are leaving so they can sleep - and then being told that they would rather stay awake. It is tendernes. Love is waking up to find the subject of your dream asleep on your shoulder. It's where fantasy meets reality. Love is being there to wake your lover - slowly. It is sensuality. Love is finally know why you bought a queen sized bed three years earlier. It is practicality. Love is two people only taking up 1/3 of that queen sized bed. It is closeness. Love is knowing you gave the extra house key to the right person. It is trust. Love is saying "good-bye" and know that you will be back by mutual consent. It is faith. Love is being able to say the perfect phrase that can make serious embrace dissovle into giggles. It is humor. Love is opening up you medicine cabinet only to find your toothpaste tube looking like a pretzel. It is adaptation. Love is seeing what you lover really looks like for the first time. It is truth. Love is sitting around - just remembering who you were with last night. It is reflection. Love is knowing what time it is and not caring. It is joy. Love is hearing a weather forecast for a heavy storm and wishing you could spend it snyggling with your lover. It is longing. Love is seeing the new side of person you thought you knew. It is renewal. Love is the arms around you tightening their embrace. It is bliss. Love is stories that will never be told. It is personal.
