Is it wanting to curl up inside someone, closer than skin, so deeply that they become a part of you and their actions are an extension of your own?
Is it trusting someone with your only, fragile heart, taking walls down block by block and being honest, no matter how hard or how many times you've been hurt?
Is it comfort, feeling accepted as your real full self, warm fuzzies and a soft feeling of prevailing happiness?
Is it laughing with someone, feeling they enrich every experience & simply just wanting them around?
Does it hit you like a lightning bolt, scorching, or does it creep up and around you like a slow-growing vine?
Is there a right person or just a right time?
...don't go getting your panties in a twist, I'm not in love, I've just been thinking about it a lot. It's the holidays, there are engagement ring commercials all over the dang place, and I'm remembering the last (and only) time I was in love, how dramatic it was, and wondering if I will ever feel like that again or if the next time will be completely different...
What do you think? Is love the Aha! moment it's depicted as in movies? Or is is an ebb and flow of feelings? Those of you in love, did you just know or did it grow over time? I'm in a listening mood, tell me your story!
Today I am so grateful & happy for:
~ a fat soft kitty
~ coooooooold Christmas weather
~ talking about the elephant ;)
