Tell me, what was love like?

Was it round or square, short or long, or of a shape?

One would be proud to wear?

I do not know, I only know, so far its fold extends,

Then none who know its shape can say where love begins or ends…


In this enigmatic world there are some elements of which science can not prove. They are so extra-ordinary and unique that we can not just describe them with a single word and then say that it perfectly stands for it, but, instead even thousands and thousands of words seem to be a zilch! It isn’t a thing, or a human being, either a place… it’s just a feeling, its ‘love’.

It does not speak nor demand, can not be seen neither heard. It can only be felt through the living hearts. It is said that love and hatred are the two strongest emotions on this wild heavenly body. But, love has its own touch! Because it does not lie and, it is a pure, true feeling!

No one can explain where it begins or ends, or even if it exists in a shape, or even so, is it something nice to wear? For it is said love is blind and it is an uncalled guest! It is very amusing that when we were kids and we wanted to hide or needed help we always went to our moms! Do you know when it broke the ice? There are statements that can not be explained and there are questions that can not be answered. And, LOVE is one of them!

In our group of crazy friends, we never realized when this bond of ‘love’ glued us all together. And, when one is depressed or is delighted, the feelings are mutual even though we are not facing the same circumstances.

Love just happens! It does not ask you where, with whom, why or when… it does its work in a momentum! Like the lightning sparks this second and the other… it’s all gone! It has the power to conquer over anything, even over ruthless hearts! Wondering so much about it I still do not know how it happens, even though when it manifests to be so IMPOSSIBLE! This delirious and erratic feeling of ours works like a magic! Spins its wand and fascinates us with its bewitching performance!

Love is something exceptional. It is like a fortune, because even when we have nothing in our hands, and we lose our battles, it makes us have a hope that ‘try again’, and it sounds as if we have everything! So, never lose the ones who love you because they are worth a fortune.

And, give Love and get more than you can ever imagine… the best deal of life! 🙂
