Love Is

“I don’t pretend to know what love is for everyone, but I can tell you what it is for me: Love is knowing all you can about someone and still wanting to be with them despite any darkness, imperfections or insecurities they have about their self and have shown you in trust. Love is trusting them enough to show your own darkness & everything about yourself, including the things you might be ashamed of; love is feeling comfortable and safe with someone, sitting in silence yet having the most wonderful conversations, always uplifting each other, listening with your heart & to theirs as it beats with your head on their chest. Kissing their forehead & their wounds, staying together in the midst of troubled waters, compromising with each other without losing who you are as individuals, protecting each other’s solitude and still getting weak knees when they walk into the room and smile at you.”
