What would you do for love?
In pursuit of an answer, I have a few other questions to help sort out this conundrum:
Would you walk, say, walk 500 miles, over hot burning coals?
Would you cross a desert . . . would you journey across the sands without even a canteen?
Would you swim across the sea . . . of shark-infested waters?
Probably not . . .
Would you climb a mountain to the top of the world’s highest peak
Then capitulate, jumping off the cliff, and plunging into Love’s abyss?
And would you call this Love or hyperbole?

Or, do you play it safe and retreat?
Spending your time . . . spending your life wandering the endless streets
Checking out bland faces
In a world of common want and greed
But, I don’t want play the role of the cynic here either

The times of falling in Love are very few . . .
In your whole life, maybe just one or two
Maybe counting Love on only one index finger
The kind of Love that comes just once in a lifetime
To have such a Love, just this one time—
Infinitely better than having found no love at all—
At least this is what poets say.

What would you do for love?
For that someone who takes your breath away
When they send you floating instead of walking down the street
Lifting you up… with the feeling of being so high you can touch the stars
Riding on the Milky Way

When you like to look at that person
They seem to shine in your eyes
When the conversation is give and take
And not a one-way street
The way she turns me on
A state of ecstasy, to be in a trance-like state
She takes me home
Watching her sleep
As if she were dreaming the same dream as me
Love is a drug (and you know how I like drugs)

When you think of that person day and night
Their image stays in your head
When she is not there, something seems wrong
Infinitely worse than when your iPhone is missing (for comparison)
The world is askew . . . you have no idea what to do.

Love . . . Love has no rules
And upon this reflection, I can’t decide whether this fact:
Love has no rules
You tell me: is Love kind or is it cruel?

What would you do for love?
Would you give up everything?
