What Is Love?

The following is a paper that I wrote in college, and found when I was packing up. I thought it worthy of publishing because of the events of the 20 years. Let me know what you think. For what its worth, I got a B on it.  ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ For the past year or so, I have been battling with the idea of what I want from a relationship. Naturally, everyone dreams of meeting their soulmate and riding away into the sunset together, yet few people ever truly experienced this kind of love. After extensive soul-searching, I have come to the realization that I really have Never Loved Before. I don't know if it's a blessing or not. It's true that I have been able to avoid a lot of pain, but I have also been able to avoid any deeply fulfilling relationships. I have never experienced a truly unselfish and pure love that transcends all else. It was not until recently that I even realized that there might be something wrong with this.


I stand before you Naked, exposed, Trembling, lest you deny me I love you That is all I have
