What Is Love

©

Published: May 2008

What Is Love ?
and why does love never find me
Instead Broken Hearts Surround Me
And once again the wrong man found me
Saying he wouldn't hurt me
but in the end he didn't deserve me
What Is Love?
and why doesn't love know my name
I prayed to God that it would change
But true love never came
What Is Love?
I ask myself time after time,
why is love so blind,
or I shouldn't waste my time
I guess Broken Hearts are only made for me,
Because love finds everyone else but love never found me....

Love came to my life in various ways and roads, but none lasted for a long period. My parents have been in love for 30 years now, but I seem to have lacked love. Every person who came to my life disappeared without any reason. I stopped being in love. It feels lonely at times, but I feel happy in loneliness hoping at least it's better than a broken heart.

Every time the wrong guy chose me , and I Always feel sad when we got separated. But now I know that I don't need a man, I am happy that I have my family and friends and that they truly love me . So love is not only to be in a relationship, love is to be surrounded with the people that love us and never hurt us. So I said to myself that being without love is not a big deal, the only thing that matters is to trust myself and follow my goals in life, and maybe love will come when I will achieve my goals.

It's hard to believe in something when you can't find it. My name is Ric, I'm 34. I know what love is. I see an example of that every time I see my parents, they have been married over 34 years and they are inseparable. All I wanted was to find that someone that I could share that with. Yet, time after time, after I get close to someone things fall through. To make things worse, they always end it. When I felt that I didn't put enough into the relationship, it still hurt but I accepted those losses. I felt as it was my fault. But then there were those relationships where I put in 100%, and things still went wrong. With those kind of relationships it just leaves me wondering why? I'm tired of getting hurt, getting better, then finding someone again just to repeat the cycle. I'm tired. I'm giving up. I don't want to be hurt anymore. I don't even want love to find me anymore.

Dear Ric,

I've suffered for so long myself asking this question, however, this is what time has taught me. Love isn't a thing that you see from others and want to have the exact copy of; it's seeing someone who may totally be what you don't want on paper but you guys have that mutual respect for one another initially, become friends with no expectations of anything, and it sort of happens. Love comes with so many sacrifices as well.

If you ask your parents, I'm sure there are times they want to strangle each other or walk away, however, they chose not to, and furthermore they had a mutual agreement to show love towards you.

I hope you learn to love without conditions, even to the most unlovable person, and surely you won't miss love 'cause it's something you would have so freely given.

Nothing disappoints like a relationship that doesn't work out, especially if you have lived to see a living example of the kind of relationship you want. I have never found the relationship I wanted, and I have always envied my friends who are in relationships. But that doesn't make me give up on love and it doesn't make me a love hunter either. I have learned that the perfect kind of love is the one that you never searched for. That love which nature brings to you as a gift of being who you are and having a life you enjoy. If you find yourself draining all you have and all you are in a relationship, you have not yet found the right one. Lets not give up on love, let's embrace it by loving ourselves first then creating the life we will love and share it with others...It's never too late to fall in love so let's not let loneliness get the best of us.

I am the female version of you! 34 years old and my parents have been married for 40 years. I am incredibly lonely, all I have ever wanted was to find love and still I am alone.

Wow, this is amazing. I use to think I was alone in this sinking boat. I'm 38 and have felt like this all my life. I was married for 15 years and my child and I was abandoned, Then I found someone else and was with him for 7 years before he took his own life. I feel like I'm not meant to be loved. My definition of love is: It's a fallacy of emotions. I hope that some day someone will prove me wrong.

WOW I don't know how to tell you Thank You. I felt like I am alone no love, no one who will cherish me as I would them. I know I am young but it hurts, I've have gone around school for my whole life and yet has love found me. I always thought it was avoiding me till I met this one guy, I felt so happy until till I heard that line "I think we should be friends" I didn't accept it till today when I saw him with another. A slap in the face and now that I've read this I know I'm not alone I feel that the weight has been lifted off my shoulders. Thank You!!!!!!!

Is it so wrong to want the other half of your heart? I have searched all my life and in the end came up with nothing except being deceived by people I thought at one time loved me. I so wish with all my heart I could find my soul mate. Perhaps it is not to be.

This poem is just what I feel like! I never knew others felt the same!

Very good depiction of what I myself have been through for years....I did pray to God for a long time to change it and let Love find me, but in vain! Finally, gave up praying and believing in God...felt much better after that, as I started believing in myself!

Patricia, I can understand how it feels....you expressed it the exact way I feel too, when I see two people together....I feel so helpless and realize that it can't be me....

And hey Chester, what you said is quite encouraging...."I will no longer look for Love, I will let it find me."

I think I should start doing it too....!

Cheers to everyone!!

This poem really touched me. 17 years and love never found me, it makes me feel so alone. I'm crushed every time I see two people together and realize that can't be me.

When I read this poem, a thousand memories started to flow through my mind, Everytime I have almost come close to that special someone, they slip away. This poem is so extremely true for a lot of people, but someday love will find everyone, they just got to open up to the pain and allow themselves to be hurt so somebody can come along and heal them with their love.

This poem is so true. Love is everywhere except near me. I'm always falling for the wrong person but those who I like never notice me at all.
