If love is more than what it seems,
Just a figment of my imagination,
then I cannot begin to fathom what it is.

Love cannot be touched,
but it touches all of us at some point in time.

Love cannot be held,
for it escapes your grasp if you try to.

Love cannot be seen by the eye,
but by the soul;
a human being's one true vision.

Love cannot be heard,
except for in metaphor when you hear the one speak.

Love is but a word;
an attempt to grasp the unknown.

Love comes to us when we aren't looking for it,
when we are willing to let it go.

Love eludes us when we search,
when we wish to keep it for our own.

Love only shows itself to you if you give what you don't have to it;
your own love.

Love, love, and more love.
All of this talk about something we will never understand.

Love is what makes me worry about you,
Love is what makes me avoid you.
Love is what controls everything I say and do,
All of this for love.

Love is the ability to see,
Not with eyes, but with our hearts.
Love is to act not in your own best interest, but in another's,
All of this for love.

I don't know what love is,
But it's hard to live without.

So are you.
I wrote this on my arm in Sharpie while I was manning the haunted house door after :iconblackarmsox: left. I've tweaked it a bit, but I think it came out all right, considering the room I have on my arm.

Ahaha, it would seem my best works come from when I'm feeling depressed, worried or stressed.
Thanks. :)

Wow. That's impressive. I would never have been able to fit all that on my arm.

Ah.
