The Fire Of Love

Rohan is a passionate writer who seeks to spread the love of literature in every way possible.

One half of me is yours, the other half yours

Mine own, I would say; but if mine, then yours,

And so all yours.

— William Shakespeare in "The Merchant Of Venice."

Love is power.

Love is power.

I am here to love

I am here to stay

I am here to hold your hand

And play hide-and-seek with your gaze.

Please don't fade away from sight

All I've got is this vision.

Your gaze is electricity.

Your gaze is electricity.

All the crazy voices in my head say"no," but

I choose to be a child.

My choice is to wander in the dark and

Look for the light.

My tears will

Sustain my life.

I wander not in vain.

I wander not in vain.

The destination is far

Your heart is cold.

I will be your fireplace and

Keep you warm.

Come be my love forever.

I look up to the sky in search of an answer.

I look up to the sky in search of an answer.

Love is not for the weak of heart. It takes courage to love. All the uncertainties that love throws at one can only be overcome with strength.

A true lover is also a sacrificer. It is true that love is pleasurable, but it also involves sacrifice aplenty. In fact, the challenges that true love is confronted with make it more of a sacrificial experience than a pleasurable one.


If you are a person in love, know this. You must give the relationship all you've got right from the very beginning, from the first glance that runs through your body like an electric current. Your courage in love, that courage to face anything that is thrown at you, will sustain you. It is this courage that will be the source of your victory even if passion dies out with time.

Courage and sacrifice, in the face of countless obstacles, create victory even when in the jaws of defeat.

Courage and sacrifice lie at the very heart of love.
