Love tells you you’re beautiful.
Love kisses your nose and holds your hand.
Love makes you feel like flying, unstoppable with every word or action.
Love is there to dry your tears and push out the darkness.
Love is perfect and never-ending.
Love is faithful.
Love is happy.
Love makes you feel whole.
Love makes you feel empty.
Love is sad.
Love is fraudulent.
Love is broken and temporary.
Love makes you cry and laughs at your pain.
Love makes you fall with nothing there to catch you, makes you feel small and alone.
Love takes back their things and
closes the door.
Love tells you you’re hideous.
