Love is Like a Candle Flame

Love is like a candle flame. Its shape may change, but unless you blow it out, it's always there. There are many types of love, and an amassment of ways it can be expressed. Rewgardless, no matter how you show love towards someone, you care about them just as much as yourself.
Love can mean that you have extreme passion for a friend, or even more than that. When you are with that person, time freezes and the world seems to light up. There is no need to pretend who you are, because if they truly care about you, they will think abou the positive things about you, not your flaws. Also, bragging and rudeness do not exist when there is love.
When you leave somone you love, life becomes a nightmare. There is a pain that never leaves. However, that person is never truly gone because they are still in your heart.

It is to my full belief that love is not something you want to chase away.

Many people will ask, "How do I know if I love someone?" This is my answer.

Sometimes you can't help but fall, maybe too hard. . . It just happens. One of the cruelties of love. It gives you such a wonderful feeling of hope, then leaves you infatuated and brokenhearted.

Your views are understandable. Love is heartbreakingly debatable in this society. To be "in love" and to "love" are two very different things. You've pinpointed "love" but to be "in love" isn't always the same. You write so decidedly and I admire your firm beliefs.
