Love wilts under the wight of possession. Love is not something to be clutched tightly in the hand. Love is a living breathing entity. For some, romantic love comes in seasons... And for still others, love is something that comes and goes as it pleases, over a lifetime, ebbing and weaving, like the ocean tide.
