What is Love?

Taking a stab at poetry..

What is love?
Sticking through the good and the ugly,
not willing to give up so quickly
 because of how much you love me.
Never having to question your intentions,
because you put no one above me.

You're an angel,
but not in disguise.
I dream of waking up to you everyday,
even if we don't always see eye to eye.

So what is love?
I ask myself in the mirror.
Been craving love for some time, 
it couldn't be any clearer.

It's not the desire for someone special,
nor a significant other.
It's a pure kind of love,
not just the love you get from your mother.

Not falling into the trap of what society tells you,
the feelings you have inside don't need any approval.
Self love is the best love and sometimes you're all you've got,
but what you have is enough... that's just some food for thought.

All photos were taken at the amazing Love Vibe pop up in NYC. The pop up consists of seven rooms that act as the visual representation of the different stages of falling in love. They are open until November, so if you are in New York or plan on visiting New York soon, I'd definitely recommend checking them out! You can purchase tickets here.
