Love does not exist. I console to that fact and point out reasons to further prove it.
a scientific reaction dating back to early human evolution, where the male species insinctively chose the more attractive female species in order to produce healthier offsprings in the future; it's hardwired in all of us as a primal instinct, thus settling as a base need --to reproduce more effectively our own kind for the generations to come.
a basic maternal and/or paternal instinct evident in most mammals in the animal kingdom. Its primary function is to protect our offsprings from external forces that would otherwise cause harm and moreover prevent our kind from progressing further.
a chemical reaction in our brain that results from a ratio of attraction and care. Responsible for this is a hormone called serotonin, a hormone that heightens our mood and numbs the pain receptors in our body.
Love as a concrete feeling/emotion? I highly doubt it. If it were to be real, it'd only be ephemeral. Nothing is immortal.
But then, I always thought to myself... What is this lingering between us? Was I wrong about the concept of love?
Herewith presented before my atheistic arms someone who understands my emotions; a person, emerged from thousands upon thousands of generations, upon a genetic code so specific a form. You, my inamorata.
The human being who made my life more exciting than anyone else in this universe, the human being who showed me the values of life itself, the human being who kissed my lips and grew these chemical reactions in me tenfold.
You are the antithesis of everything I ever said. Even as our bodies wither away into the abyss of space and time we will still have this something between us. Someday, we will understand the true definition of love. But as of now, I conclude only one statement.
I love you.
