What ever you think love is
That is not love.
Love is something that makes you care about them
And doesn’t let their feelings go unchecked.
Love is when you feel their pain and try desperate things, even small,
To ease them.
Love is when you hurt them so much in the name of ‘caring’,
But they still ‘love’ you .
Love is when they know they love you and you can feel it too.
But don’t ever, in the name of love, be a monster
Ripping their hearts out from time to time
When they desperately try to keep it together
To patch it back, and pretend their heart is healthy and have always been healthy
Even if you gave that heart,
It is not yours and you will never feel the pricks or slashes.
