    Love makes you do some crazy things
    Like stay when you know you should leave
    Boo-hoo cry when you should be smilin
    Question yourself when you know you're right
    So why...why do we put ourselves through this?

    To feel those few rare glorious moments
    like the heat of the setting sun on your face
    or the hands and arms of a lovers embrace
    When it's good you have a piece of heaven
    When it's bad you think your soul is dieing

    Love is like a drug, you know you shouldn't
    but you can't help but to do it again and again
    Always striving for a hit as good as your first
    However all subsequent loves just don't measure up

    So here I am finding myself going back
    The question is, back to what?
    Back to a moment in time that no longer exists
    but in my mind I just have to try...just one more time

    Love makes you do some crazy things
    things you can't even explain...
    Not even to yourself.

    Thank you for the love sisters, I think we've all been through these feelings at some point in our lives.

    Love is like a drug! I'm feeling that similie. I would have to say love is unexplainable because God's love for us all is to immense to even be described. Maybe that's why words can't capture love nor can we without God's love in us first. Your poem rains with reality and a lot of heart!
