A Continuum of Love

Love is an act and it is an emotion.

Love is something we do and something we feel.

Love is a blessing and it is a curse, a duty, and a gift.

Love can make us do things we never would do in its absence.

Love can lead us astray or put us right where we need to be.

Love can be tender and gentle

Love can be tough in order to get a point across or a lesson learned.

Love can create bliss or can be excruciatingly painful.

Love can save and it can destroy.

Love can be used as an excuse or

Love can make sense of things that otherwise wouldn’t.

Love is a cure or can become a disease.

Love can be given and it can be taken away.

Love can be shared among many

Love can be hoarded and controlling.

Love can set you free and it can bind you helplessly.

Love is liberating and it is debilitating, is boundless  and paralyzing.

Love can bring you happiness or it can cause you misery.

Love can give you a desire to live it can be the start of your demise.

Love can combine two souls into one or can shatter one soul into fragments.

Love is as simple as it is complex.

Love costs nothing and can cost you everything.

Love can blind you and it can give you insight or seen in hindsight.

Love can shake you to the core or melt you into a puddle.

Love can seek and find and it can run away and hide.

Love is in our memories, our decisions, our successes and our failures.

Love can become hot and steamy and it can turn cold as ice.

Love can make things right with the world and it can turn your world upside down.

Love can be honored and it can be manipulated.

Love is for fools.

Love is for everybody.

Love is universal.
