I am in love. There I said it, I am in love. What does that mean though? The term "love" is used very loosely. When I went to and looked up the word love, what I found made me laugh. One definition said "a feeling of warm personal attachment or deep affection, as for a parent, child, or friend." The definition right below that read "sexual passion or desire." But I think there is something to this. it means that there are many different kinds of love, and they cannot be compared. My definition of love fits all types of love:

Love: [luhv] noun. the feeling of wanting to sacrifice part of yourself for something of someone.

That is love. And When I say I am in love, I mean I will sacrifice my life, mind, body, and sole, for my girl. I already have.

The author's comments:
The girl that I am talking about in this piece is not a girlfriend. I don't even have a crush on her. She is my sister... or I call her my sister anyway. I've known her my entire life, she is the person that is keeping me alive.
