That Kind of Love

Have you ever had a love that sends chills down your spine?

That while talking about mundane things, you find yourself staring at his or her lips and have to fight the urge to lean over and kiss them with no care for the rest of the world.

That you feel a current whenever your skin touches theirs.

That you get a rush of adrenaline each and every time you see that someone.

And you have that pride in your heart that this person cares for you as much.

That somehow, smiles come easier. There's a certain kind of light in your eyes, a skip in your step, a song in your voice. You get a heady feeling that the world is yours to conquer.

A love so powerful that a simple hug feels like it's all you need in the world, a sweet kiss leaves you breathless and hungry for more.

That the flowers are in bloom, the sun seems to shine brighter, the sky magnificently bluer, and the world is simply a better place.

Have you had that kind of love?

Yes, it's a practical world and people expect you to team up with the most logical choice, the nice guy next door who sent you flowers on your birthday, the sweet friend who brings you soup when you're sick or gives up his or her night to have a conversation with you over the phone and drives you home when you're too drunk, the girl whose dad is friends with your dad and you've known since you guys were kids. This is the choice that we are expected to make, that society dictates us to make.

But once in a while, you get feelings so strong, you feel like you were doused with a bucket of ice cold water. You don't get those often enough in a lifetime, some never get them at all.

So if you're one of the lucky ones to find that, you grab that chance, you take it.

For no matter how unsure you are of the future, no matter how uncertain you are of the outcome, that kind of love, it isn't something you just let pass you by.
