How Would You Love?

Author:

JB is an hopeless romantic who has been writing poetry and essays since childhood. She wants to travel the world more than anything.

They've always told me, “When you love, always love with reserve.”

Never give everything. That way, when you do get hurt, you won’t get hurt and be left with nothing.

They've always told me, “When you love, always keep your head above the waters.”

That way, when it doesn’t work out, you won’t get drowned easily and you'd still be able to breathe.

They've always told me, “When you love, always love slowly and never too fast.”

That way, when the road gets bumpy, you won’t dive in head first and straight into the pain.

But how about if you fall in love and you couldn't help but fall hard and deep?

But what if you find someone who makes you want to give everything and not just 99%?

What if you find someone whom you want to get drowned with?

What if you find someone who makes you want to rush it all?

What if you find someone who gives you the courage to love despite the risk of a broken heart?

What if you find the right one?

The one who makes your heart beat so much and so fast you can’t help but fall hard and fast?

What if, just what if you find the one? Will you be able to avoid giving your heart away?

Will you be able to control how you fall in love?

So then, how do you really love?
