Forever Young.

Life is crazy,
but I wouldn't have it any other way.

I keep seeing quotes like, "Love burns brighter than the sun."
I disagree.
Love is like the embers of a spent fire, because that's what's left at the end of the day.
Yes, it burns hot, but slowly and completely, too.  It can burn you, but only if you're stupid about it.  What hurts us is generally the immediate flare up, when it's started but sometimes not tended to, or the immediate dousing with cold water.  Love in it's entirety doesn't hurt us, it's everything that could come with it that does, such as loneliness or rejection.  Love is the basic burning that starts in the soul and slowly makes it's way throughout the entire body, down to the toes and up to your nose.  In the bright daylight, perhaps it's hard to see, but when it comes down to when it matters, in the deepest, darkest part of the night, it burns obviously and steadily.  Love will endure.
How often I've breathed those three words silently into you.
love always, laura elizabeth.
