What is LOVE ?

For centuries poets and artists in general have talked about love, each from his own prospective. Those people are more sensitive to things around them than others; so they have to express what they feel whether in writing, music, or just a portrait.

And the reason behind their need to express themselves is their confusion about a certain feeling, so they reach within their inner selves to produce something meaningful, something that makes sense to them and brings harmony to their own lives before sharing it with the public.

And although love was a very hot subject that many poets (through ages around the globe) wrote about more than any other subject, yet, it still remains ” a mystery“.

But one thing is certain and common between love poems; it is always associated with ecstasy and pain; TWO OPPOSITE FEELINGS.

How can this feeling have such irony? And why does something that brings u the utmost happiness can ruin you as well?

I think that those artists are more scared of this mystique feeling than others.

Wine comes in at the mouth

And love comes in at the eye;

That’s all we shall know for truth

Before we grow old and die.

I lift the glass to my mouth

I look at you and I sigh.

“A Drinking song” W. B. Yeats
