THAT THING CALLED LOVE


Love is when you are the one and all for each other - a parent when the other half needs the selfless caring, a teacher when the other half needs guidance, a friend when the other half needs assurance, a critique when the other half needs to be corrected - a mirror for all your emotions.
Love is about reaching out and putting a smile on others face.
Love is the unconditional emotional investment that we make in our other halves.
Love is when you smile for no reason.
Love is the fondness, the attachment that you feel - the one that tells you that you will never let go.
Love is the reassurance that someone is always there - JUST FOR YOU.
Love is when you know that there are better people out there but your other half is the best for you.
Love is when you feel like two hands, fitting perfectly in to each other cuz they fill the gaps in each other's fingers perfectly.
Love is what stretches your soul to new horizons.
Love is when you are not just comfortable but in love with yourself - cuz your other half loves you.
Love is when you FEEL beautiful.
Love is when nothing is complete without that one person - that special someone
Love is when every kiss feels like the first kiss.

But all that glitters is not gold... Rite?

Love is like a coin - heads u win, tales you lose - you decide if you wanna toss or just keep it in your pocket and play it safe.
And god forbid if its Tales - well then the whole world seems to fall apart.
Your heart n your head declare the third world war against each other.
You don't just feel like trash but your minds stinks like it too.
You feel lonely even if you are standing in the middle of the Dalal Street
It feels like someone has sucked life out of you and you live like a programmed robotic creature - feels like the purpose of your life is over.
Life becomes a puzzle - where some pieces don't fit and the other's just go missing
When your tears run dry, but the pain does not.
Days are longer and time starts to crawl.
And all you feel is NUMB.

Sometimes, FOREVER also means Goodbye!

SO what do you think love is like.... whats your experience and whats your definition. You think its worth all the pain? You think it over rated? Have you been there done that and would you still wanna jump in to it? Would you like to know how it feels to be loved at the risk of knowing how it feels to be hurt AGAIN?
Lets see what you gotta say!!!

Thanks Pooja for your views, thought i don completely agree... i think if its really love, then its more a soothing balm... or maybe i am just a ridiculous mush pot :D

Love to me wins always...I dun think true love ever loses! We may not always end up with the ppl we love, but the love always STAYS.

You captured all abt love in your post.:)

***whats your experience and whats your definition. You think its worth all the pain?

Its hard to say that love is worth all the pain since pain ain't a dose many would gladly take. But i think love does come with pain esp when a love one falters away or when a sacrifice has to be made. Perhaps.

***You think it over rated?

I think its too beautiful and well demanded to think of it as overated.

***Have you been there done that and would you still wanna jump in to it?

Yes once again.

***Would you like to know how it feels to be loved at the risk of knowing how it feels to be hurt AGAIN?

At one point of time, i was reluctant to say.But today i can gladly say i am looking forward to its real taste.:)

AMEN

:P

Love to me is like a physical and mental disorder in which the person gets highly light headed,making him prone to a lot of extra-sweet behaviour which may result in depression when he is 'out' of the deadly disease.
LOL! :))

October 30, 2008 at 10:43 AM  

is this supposed 2 b love week/ heartbreak week? this is the 4th blog i see(including mine of course) that talks about love..!

Its funny how love makes life so sugary at tyms.. yet the agony of its departure's unbearable.. you can't live with it, nor can you without it..

October 30, 2008 at 11:05 AM  

Love for me has always been a fairy-tale sort of thing. It's amazing when it's true. Yes it can turn you into a new, lovelier you, the more beautiful you. But when it hurts, it makes you feel ugly inside.
Unfortunately I have lost my definition of love. I may be the girl who got heads at first but later got tails. So, sorry I couldn't come up with some good view of it.

Nice post Girl :)
And hey, the profile dp you have, you seem kinda sad. I hope you aren't and I'm just imagining it :)

October 30, 2008 at 11:24 AM

LOVE IS THE LOVELIEST THING ON TH EARTH !!

I had written an essay on that wen i was in 8th class :D

October 30, 2008 at 2:38 PM  

amazing post, dear! you know once i wrote something similar with same questions in the end and almost everyone replied they will go for it again and again even if they know in the end they will be hurt..
Love is not something you would have forever. For some of us it lasts just a year, for some – a month, a week, a day, a moment… But isn’t our life just a moment comparing to eternity. Time is relative when it is about you being happy in love. And even if you get a chance of being with the one you love for a day only, wouldn’t it be the best day of your life. Wouldn’t it be your LIFE? Because rest does not matter.
At least for me it does not... because like someone once said "Once in a while, right in the middle of an ordinary life, love gives us a fairy tale" …

October 30, 2008 at 3:39 PM

October 30, 2008 at 8:01 PM  

Love is there.. always... in different forms... parent's, bro's, sis', friends'.. and whatever you can think of.
Love is always around, sometimes we fail to feel it, see it.

October 30, 2008 at 8:07 PM  

Love is a word of light, written by a hand of light, upon a page of light...

Nice Post..

well love is-when after a long time you see the person,you can still talk to them as if it was yesterday :)

My experience with love,ha not much success till now :) i find that girls now days are more into relationships for fun and i don't want to into anything with such girls...and well the proper girls are my frnds... :P

October 30, 2008 at 10:49 PM  

My love life is Amazing....I will never be with her....but I am only glad that I experienced Love

Apne nayan se neer bahaaye
Apni jamuna khud aap hi banaave
Laakh baar usme hi nahaye
Poora na hoyi asnaan
sookhe kes, rookhe bhes
manwaa bejaan
piya tora kaisa abhimaan?

(Song from Raincoat)

i've never been in love that's made me lose my head.
i've been in love that's helped me keep my head.

i've never been in love that has made me forget the world
i've been in love that's helped me see what's real in this world.

October 31, 2008 at 3:03 AM  

sometimes i think i know what Love is, sometimes I don t when I listen to some true love stories from friends, it seems that i ve never loved or be loved like that, though there is different type of Love and for sure at least i know that i deeply love, and am being love by my family :)
nice post

DivKIRANNN,

Arrey, you hv written it so well & covered it so wow-wow way, bahut sochne ke bad bhi humein koi nayi soch nahi aa raha hain. Enjoyed & leant.

Ok, let me give some minutes to hv a cup coffee (I'm too good in making coffee) to see whether I can come up with some ideas or not. Just 5 mins!

October 31, 2008 at 11:22 AM  

Main nahi, kisine kahan hain: Love is like war—easy to begin, hard to finish.

But no, love isn’t overrated.

Love really is worth fighting for, being brave for, risking everything for. And the trouble is, if you don't risk everything, you risk even more.

But yeah, believing that a true-love-story would have a happy ending is overrated. It’s a journey; starting at forever, and ending at never.

Yes, sometimes Love is denied, sometimes lost, sometimes unrecognized, but in the end, always found with no regrets, forever valued and kept treasured. Bcoz to love and win is the best thing but to love and lose, the next best. TRUE LOVE is giving all you have to someone you know you're going to lose.

HE? Maybe HE has lost the route that leads to YOU and is too stubborn to ask for the direction. If I saw him, I'll help him to find path towards you:)

There is a cool song I forgot, but you can listen this one too:

A bell is no bell 'til you ring it,
A song is no song 'til you sing it,
And love in your heart
Wasn’t put there to stay -
Love isn’t love
'Til you give it away.

~Oscar Hammerstein, Sound of Music, "You Are Sixteen”

Btw, aapke liye mere blog-me ek special post rakhha hain. Don’t miss it.

Take care,
Roy

I really dunno wht to say buddy... To me, love is tantalizing. Period.

Very well written...

Peace.

November 2, 2008 at 12:14 AM  

Love............
Been there done it all...eh?
I guess it's good to be in love always...no matter how hard the past relation was, one shouldn't stop believing in it! As they say, you cannot hate all roses 'coz you were once hurt by a thorn!

November 2, 2008 at 4:05 AM  

Lovely post.

November 3, 2008 at 1:30 AM

November 4, 2008 at 7:33 PM  

Well, everything has its risk. if you know how to deal with it, you can win, but most of us don't know. Once we fall in love, we think that's the whole world, forgetting everything else only to realize later that it was worth nothing. You we are ourselves and be that way, then it will change
:)

November 5, 2008 at 8:27 PM  

LOVE is a gift...If u receive it try 2 appreciate it if nt den sumone is wrapping it 4 u.

November 6, 2008 at 5:51 PM  

:) Glad you felt so...

November 8, 2008 at 11:19 PM  

So many great souls have defined Love. But still each one defines it his own way through the eyes he has seen.

For me Love is the trust that the other person wud be with me till the end of this journey of life

Loved the post.

November 10, 2008 at 7:11 AM  

Wonderfully put !!But I sincerely doubt love is unconditional ...

Love for me, Hmmm. It's everything and it's nothing. True Love accepts you, bringing out the best in you, saves you from tears, brings a smile to your face, makes you feel cared for, understands you and holds you high when you're drowning ...

These days though, Love is over rated, being confused with romance and the myriad of different things the television portrays. People have become too demanding, expecting all that they THINK love is, forgetting to look for the Real signs. Love is not all that, but the little things, a smile, a touch, a caring gesture. Not huge bouquets, dates, grand overtures ...

Anyways, that's a little from me. Though love is a topic that anyone can write essays on about their unique take on it .

Cheers to you !! :)

Tk cr.

November 10, 2008 at 9:03 PM  

@Aneesh - well its not tht its not worth anything, i think its worth all the pain... but whn u lose it,, its hard to deal with it... and thts just not the best

@Bhagguhey - hmmm... nice thinkin

@Suresh - ah so true, but vry less ppl r blessed with it

@Adisha - even i think its not unconditional now days
so true, its so much more thn just romance n the feel good factor...

November 13, 2008 at 6:19 PM  

Geez no wonder you told Lena in that post of hers that it's like a sequel to this :P

Awesome write-up dear!As for what I think of love,I don't think but I just feel cause the more you think the more things are likely to get screwed up!Lol

November 26, 2008 at 4:23 PM  

this blog left me speechless.. u have expressed it in the most bful way.. it just made me thing that love is a such a mixed blessing... bt we still hope for love even if hurts the most...

December 18, 2008 at 12:00 PM  

love...i dnt noe whether it's over-rated or whether it's worth al d pain..bt one thng i cn vouch for is dat wen love is dere, it feels grt to b a part of it..nd wen it's no longr dere, u feel lyk a piece of sh*t ALL THE TIME..evn d slightest hint of a budding romance or "new love" cn mke evn d mst sensible of us fuzzy nd stupid :D God hs designed us in a way dat only love mkes us feel whole..b it materialistic, for family, frnz or sme1 frm opposite(or for dat matter, same;)) sex..
so basically, u cnt describe love usin ne adjective..love is well, jst love!:D
