Is It Love?

Is It Love?


  • Are your palms sweaty, is your heart racing? and your voice caught within your chest?
    It isn't love, it's like.

  • You can't keep your hand off them, am I right?
    It isn't love, it's lust.

  • Are you proud and eager to show them off?
    It isn't love, it's luck.

  • Do you want them because you know they're there?
    It isn't love, it's loneliness.

  • Are you there because it's what everyone wants?
    It isn't love, it's loyalty.

  • Do you stay for their confessions of love, because you don't want to hurt them?
    It isn't love, it's pity.

  • Are you there because they kissed you, or held your hand?
    It isn't love, it's lack of confidence.

  • Do you belong to them because their sight makes your heart skip a beat?
    It isn't love, it's infatuation.

  • Do you tell them that everyday they are the one you think of?
    It isn't love, it's a lie.

  • Are you willing to give up all your favorite things for their sake?
    It isn't love, it's charity.

  • Do you pardon their faults because you care about them?
    It isn't love, it's friendship.

  • Do you accept their faults because it's part of who they are?
    Then it's love.

  • Do you cry for their pain, even when they're strong?
    Then it's love.

  • Do their eyes see your true heart, and touch your soul so deeply, it hurts?
    Then it's love.

  • Do you stay because a blinding incomprehensible mix of pain, and elations pulls you close and hold you?
    Then it's love.

  • Are you attracted to others but stay with them faithfully with no regrets?
    Then it's love.

  • Would you give them your heart, your life, your death?
    Then it's love.

  • And always remember - love isn't one sided! - Both must love for LOVE to exist!
