Love is never a game. It never was, it never had, and it never will be. But I do believe they are experiences, and experiences are new lessons to learn. Some are easy, some are pretty difficult. You'll stumble and fall, get up and walk tall. You'll love the people as they are, for who they are. You'll have to love yourself for who you are the most. And importantly, you'll have to never lose yourself in the process of love. But your love is never a gamble or a deck of cards, never tricks thrown by a magician or illusions on a circus, and never luck called dumb and sweet and broken. Your love will always be valid. And if you ask me how many times I will say the word "love" I'll say it l until love becomes a lesson worth the experience — to give, and to be given — and until I finally know and feel that I've learned enough to love.
