What has become of love?

Some "loves" will stay consistant, although there are no gaurentees. What has become of the "way" in which some humans are "loving" eachother? Lies, deception, and lonely relationships? Families obliterated by wrongs and decipt? Friends that don't really know why they are friends? the love between friends is not the same as it was by the seems of things...miss-trusts, doubts, judgements and again lies and decipt? as I have said before some loves do remain consistant, this is true, but what are your thoughts about love and it's slightly "off" character when taking the whole of humanity into consideration? I can't wait to hear what you might have to say about this! peace...and Happy New Year Humanity! your loving brother, Diss-Position

Finally! An opportunity to quote one of my favorite poems. On the definition of love, I beleive Mr Shakespeare said it best in his Sonnet 116. Let me not to the marriage of true minds admit impediments. Love is not love which alters when it alteration finds, or bends with the remover to remove. O no, it is an ever-fixed mark, that looks on tempests and is never shaken; it is the star to every wandering bark, who's worth unknown, although his height be taken. Love's not Time's fool, though rosy lips and cheecks within his bending sickle's compass come; love alters not with his brief hours and weeks, but bears it out even to the edge of doom. If this be erroe, and upon me prov'd, I never writ, nor no man every lov'd. In mind mind, he says, love is not love which weakens when tested. That which claims to be love is not love when it is tempted by a pretty face. Love grows with time, stronger every day. I don't think we know what true love is anymore. I believe that many of us confuse lust for love and inflate infatuation until it feels like love, but would not know it if it bit us on the a!s. That, my friend, is why I believe that friendships end for stupid reasons. That is why I believe marriage has become disposable and easily ended. People don't know what love is, yet want it so desperately they will fall for deceptions often created in their own minds.

Love in its true form could have been the best way to restore peace in this world. But Love in its true form has kind of disappeared and all we get to see and feel most of the time is fake love. well parent's Love is definitely true and no doubt about it that's why we kind of start taking it for granted.We know that inspite of what wrong we may do they will continue loving us. Maybe true Love is always taken for granted,be it parent's Love or friend's Love or bf/gf's Love Only if there is a threatened feeling{when we know that person might leave us} then only we give more importance to that person.
