    What is love? Is it that feeling I get in my stomach when I hear your name? The ways my eyes sparkle everytime you enter the room? The way my eyes batter? The fast beating of my heart?

    Or could love be that smile behind all my tears? The kisses after our fights? The comprimises I've made to keep you in my life? Maybe even the forgiveness after the cheating?

    I believe all these are true of love. Maybe just unhealthy love. Dangerous love. Love that is destined for pain, destruction and tears. With you I've gone through all this. I've felt every one of these emotions, and still never walked away.

    I even went to the extreme of putting your life before my own. Willing to take that fatal bullet. Willing to lie to the laws. To keep you safe no matter what the consequenses. The way Juliet loved Romeo. That crazy love as they call it.

    I can't help it though, I'm starting to realize the wrong where I thought it was right. I loved you with every breath inside of me. Every beat of my heart had your name on it. You've helped me to realize what love really is...

    Love is being there for you in your time of need and you doing the same for me. The peace your presence gives me. The strength your words have given me to grow. Love is the look in your eyes from across the room. Love is the feeling of your hand in mine when im scared. The warmth of your embrace on a cold winter's day.

    Love is love is love. Love is just love. It will not make everything you do alright. It will not bring you home tonight. Love is just an emotion that we let mean more than it can. I love you it's true...

    But more importantly, I respect you!

    This was great, I once heard that the racing of the heart beat and everything that comes with that is "falling in love" but Love is what's left over after you've been through the worst. Love is the ruins. Great poem!
