If you want to learn love, like you learned math or your A,B,C’s at school, love a happy person, love the college graduate, the guy in the polo inheriting daddy’s fancy bussiness, love someone who was born lucky and has never been bruised. They walk on the right side of the street, they go through life sailing by boat so they don’t get wet, they go everywhere by car so their fancy shoes don’t get dirty, you will be safe.
They love the same way, delicately, slowly, like a surgeon opening you up with his sterilized gloves, they won’t hurt you or they’ll do it with anesthesia, never truly dangerous, never truly touching you either…
It must be perfect, having safe love around you like a blanket for life.
But if, on the other hand, you are one of those who wants to feel love, really feel it, love an unlovable, love an outcast, love a misfit, love the artist, love the writer, love the musician, love the hippie, love the weirdo. They are the ones who will give you love like a punch on the face. Like a splash of cold water in the middle of winter, they are the ones that get tattoed on your skin.
They won’t take you like a prescription, at the same time every day with meals, they will get addicted to you, inhale you in like smoke, not leaving any part out. They won´t see bad and good, they see one, and love all. They’ll get drunk on your eyes and your smile, so they’ll try to make you happy every single second. They’ll kiss you hard, like you are a need, not an amusement.
They understand that things don’t last forever, that hard times will come along again, so while they have you they’ll make you live, they will give you all with no filters. They will make you hurt too and if you push they will push back, if you yell they’ll do it louder. There will be no sugar coating, no cherry, no games, they will put the cards on the table and let you decide, but if you say yes they’ll get rid of everything else and put you on top.
They won’t put love between your hands like owners feeding a puppy, they’ll throw it around like paper planes and make you get up of your big, comfy seat to chase them.
It might not last, it might not be perfect, but if while you are together you happen to fall into the sea, they will, no hesitation, jump in, hug you hard and drown with you.
