When you're in love you never really know whether your elation comes from the qualities of the one you love, or if it attributes them to her; whether the light which surrounds her like a halo comes from you, from her, or from the meeting of your sparks.  ~Natalie Clifford Barney


When one falls in love, he becomes selfish. He does not listen to anybody except the beating of his heart. If there is a moment that you hesitate about one person, you’ve got love mistaken. You are bound to be thoughtless, careless and selfless when you are in love. That is an excuse anyone could use when they become too self-oriented. Being selfish does not mean you want material things for yourself. Nah. Just the one you love. You forget about anything in the world. All you want is to be with one person. Have you thought of it?

The rest of you will go to the second phase of love, that is loving the person for himself, you start living to love that person, you love everything about him, his name and all names that are close to his, you start loving his voice, his looks, what he wears, and paying attention and memorizing your small talks with him, and reading his old text messages on your mobile phone over and over again night and day; he will be the first thing you think of when you first open your eyes in the morning, and the last whispers you hear right before you close your eyes and fall asleep at night. 




Love never reasons but profusely gives; gives, like a thoughtless prodigal, its all, and trembles lest it has done too little.  ~Hannah More


You would start counting minutes, counting calls, counting sms, and when the time comes for your meeting with him, you would feel your heart pounding fast, almost dropping to your feet, you would feel the whole place around you is revolving and you feel out of breath, and you feel your body shaking, and the seconds pass like hours, and finally when he arrives you extend your hand to shake with his, and you know that the look in your eyes gave you away to him, and it told on you how much you were hungry to see him, and your cold hand told his hand how much it needs his warmth, at this moment you know you gave up your power and your will, and you gave him full permission to hurt you; or to make you the happiest person on earth. 





No one can understand love who has not experienced infatuation.  And no one can understand infatuation, no matter how many times he has experienced it.  
~Mignon McLaughlin, 


In a crowd of hundreds of people, even millions, the one you love still gets 99% of your attention. Did it already occur to you? When you become so desperate looking for a person in a crowded street? The moment he shows up, your heart beats faster as if it wants to get out of your chest. When he looks at you, your cheeks seems to burn down. Ah! What a beautiful feeling.
The street lights seem to play a song in your eyes telling you what a beauty there is. Even the ugly looks so lovely in the eyes. Ah! What a lovely feeling it is –  falling in love.



BUT. There are times that even the best love stories just does not work for some people. Maybe, they are not destined to be in each other’s company. This has something do with me.  There are times that what is in your heart cannot fight the reality. Maybe, you are bound for someone better – maybe not at all. Who would have known? Who would have thought? Maybe it wasn’t supposed to be what it is.
If everyone is bound to love, they are also bound to share a piece of hurt. We cannot fully understand love unless we get hurt. We can never appreciate little things when we cannot grasp the idea of losing them. Truly, love in its simplest form brings the most complex feelings to people.
Sometimes, you just have to go, take a look, make the move, take the risk, and fall in love to understand life itself. :) Cheers to the people who loved, been loved, are loving, will love.
