Anna’s Opinion of a four letter word

Filed under: Madness,poetry — peopleandthings @ 8:59 pm

It’s sad that a four letter word can disappoint someone so much or maybe, it’s just me? All “I” know is, “I” have believed in this word all my life. Wondering when this action, this feeling was going to happen to me. Well maybe not happen but save me. I’ve been waiting for that fairy tale to begin and end in a “happily ever after.” Take me in a never ending twirl of laughter and kindness. I see it in movies, yet I have never seen what I am looking for in real life. Do people fake it? Is it real? An illusion of the mind is all I can thing of it to be.
The heart is only here to pump the blood through the veins to keep us alive. It’s not here to be “followed,” given away, or even broken. This is not a real medical condition; this is your mind tricking you into thing that a chemical “imbalance” in your brain is a feeling of “Love”
Lust maybe, but never really Love. This “thing” we call love, shapes us into who we are and really “it” may only be a sexual thing. Just something you want and when you trick yourself into believing, it is taken or lost. Then you’re left with the “broken heart.”
How many people do we say we love in our lifetime? This work is like the word “fuck.” It looses all meaning when used too much. There are so many songs, movies, writings, and pictures out that show us what love is or is suppose to be, but what is it “really?”
I think we find someone we are comfortable with (best friend types) and make it seem like love. You don’t want to loose that person you can talk to endlessly about absolutely nothing. That person you can walk around naked with and not be ashamed or insecure. He or she will be that “one and only” that you can kick it with without much confrontation. Unless you get into a flirting game of “Wrestle Mania” or a small conversation on your different views of some odd subject.
Keeping hope in love or believing in love is almost like believing in Jesus. You want so much to know it or he is there to keep you mind at ease. And, it comforts you to know there is a cushion at the end of a lonely road or a happily ever after. “Love” is a four letter word and it will always be a four letter word, but no matter how much a person is hurt, they always believe. For me, I will always “want” that fairy tale beginning and ending, but I know form experience it is harder to find then it looks in a book or a movie. I guess we can only really define love as our own; it’s whatever we make it to be.
