    love is whatever YOU love... and NOBODY can tell YOU any different.

    think over that... when you think of the definition of love.

    love is what makes you do what you do... if you hate... you can love to hate.

    the love that you have can never be defined by someone else or explained by someone else.

    i love what i am thinking right now... can anybody tell me what i am going to write next... on another thread... another post... by the time you blink your eye... and another beat of your heart... if it works you love it.

    love is... love... whatever you love... and not by what somebody else can say what love is for you.

    if a man designs a intelligence test... and another mans takes the test... and then he fails the test as it is measured by the man who designs the test... does that make the man who takes the test less intelligent than the man who designed the test for the man to take?

    love?

    True, there are infinite explanations regarding love, how does one go about measuring one against the other? You gave us some thoughts to ponder here.

    What love is for one person
    May not be love for another

    Makes sense.

    Liked the way you framed this for the reader.

    Lovely work fellow poet.

    Thank you.

    'she grabbed him and said, "i love you", and he replied, "i love my car"... they lived happily ever after.'

    love is what you love... and not stopping your love based on somebodys elses love is truly love indeed... unless that is what you love... just because you love someone or something and that someone or something does not love you... you should not deter your love for someone or something... now how you ACT is totally a different matter... love doen't love nobody... so don't ACT foolish.

    It was best said in the song:
    It takes a fool to learn, that...
    "Love don't love nobody"
    I like where you took this, it holds a lot of weight brother

    True
    The love you have for someone or something can not be explained or defined by another. Sometimes it can't be understood or explained to the one you love. Always express your love. To those you care about. Great drop, I enjoyed this very much.
