'Explanations of Love'

There is a place where love begins
and a place where love ends.

There is a touch of two hands that foils all dictionaries.

There is a look of eyes, fierce as a big Bethlehem open hearth furnace
or a green-fire acetylene torch.

Ther are single careless bywords
portentous as a big bend in the Mississippi river.

Hands, eyes, bywords-out of these love makes battlegrounds and workshops.

There is a pair of shoes love wears
and the coming is a mystery.

There is never a warning love sends and the cost of it is never written till long afterward.

There are explantions of love in all the languages
and not one is found wiser than this:

There is a place where love begins and a place where love ends-
and love asks nothing.

Carl Sandburg

Being A Lover shows itself in pain of heart; No evil is comparable to this pain in the heart. The suffering of lovers is different from all others; Love is the astrolabe of the mysteries of God. Whether love comes from earth or from heaven, In the end it draws us to the beloved: Whatever I say to explain or describe love when I arrive at love itself, I'm ashamed of my words. The commentary of words can make things clear- But love without words has more clarity. My pen was rushing to write its thoughts down; When it came to love, it broke in two. In speaking of love, the intellect is impotent, like a donkey trapped in a bog: Only love itself can explain love, Only love can explain the destiny of lovers. The proof of the sun is the sun itself: If you want proof, don't turn your face away.
Jellalludin Rumi

Love. Sometimes, I wonder if it really exists with the exception of being within the minds of poets and writers. Every one of us has had an experience where we were hurt by love or because of it. So, my question to you is this: How can something that is supposed to be such a wonderful thing cause someone so much pain? Love most certainly can have a darker side to it, can it not?
