Where will I find Love?

"Where will I find Love?"

Before I turned 21, I did not care.

I did not look for it.

I never wondered what Love felt like.

Then, I fell in Love.

Fell in Love with someone who Loved me.

I Loved Loving the one who Loved me.

It was a feeling I can't describe.

The feeling made me feel cozy.

Like a warm, fuzzy blanket.

On a cold winter's day.

I thought I would be in Love.

Forever. And ever.

But (I hate buts) things changed, and the blanket was taken away from me.

What remained were broken pieces of glass.

Or maybe it was our hearts.

Tears, lots of them.

I moaned, and weeped, and cried.

I wanted Love back.

But (I love buts) I started thinking.

I thought a lot.

Maybe, I wasn't Loving myself.

And so I began.

I found Love again.

A whole new kind of Love.

A Love with no boundaries.

A Love that will be endless forever.

And ever.

A Love that takes me back to those days.

Where I did not care about finding Love.

A Love that taught me.

Love can be found when you least expect it.

And so, I learned.

And for all those who suffered/are suffering like I did.

I hope you do too.
