Describe Love...?

How can anyone talk about “love” without sounding too cheesy?
It strikes me as somewhat impossible
If I speak of it in a rather dull tone, I’d sound like a newspaper journalist
And if I spoke of it with my emotions I’d sound cheesy
What is love, though, if not emotions?
Should I speak of it biologically?
They’re chemicals that the brain produces to entice the nerves, send heat and warmth throughout the body and give the human being a good feeling
Or perhaps I should speak of it philosophically?
It’s the meeting of two souls that became separated in the physical universe. Perhaps the feelings that we experience when we are in love represent a normal state. Being in love shows one how one should be.
How would a dictionary define the term?
Something like, “A deep, tender feeling of affection towards a person. A feeling of intense desire and attraction toward a person with whom one is willing to make his or her partner; the emotion of sex and romance.”

I should speak of love the way that I see it.
Simply put, love is:

Breaking the Chains:

"Love is not enough. It must be the foundation, the cornerstone - but not the complete structure. It is much too pliable, too yielding."

Bette Davis

"Maybe someday, somehow, love will finally be able to conquer all... We can only hope."

Oh honey.. as our pal, Ibn Hazim said, only one who has experianced it could ever understand it..
i have no experiance in romantic love, but i do know a thing or two about loving a friend..
sometimes, unconditionally even..
but u know what sucks? when u love someone and they don't love u back the same amount. or when they love u more than u love them. What do u do then?
P.S. lol.. am the first to comment!!

as for the post: so very true. and it conforms to my mindset these days (especially) ;) but really...i dont think i could have pinned it more precisely: love is Him

matters of the heart are so simple, yet more complex than we'd ever imagine...

What did you mean by Him ... a guy or God?

I would say both .. but a love for him comes as part of a love for HIM.
