Four letters combined as a tool to visually convey this emotion or this feeling from within us. Often times, I feel like people get so focused on the word “love” that they forget to look for the emotion. There are even people out there who take this fact for granted, and use “love” as their own personal tool to manipulate others; giving a false sense of the emotion, simply by using the word. If we’re too focused on looking for or listening for the word, and not looking for the emotion, we can be easily fooled into thinking love is there, just because we hear it and may want it to be.
We need to remember that there is a difference between love and “love.” You may hear someone tell you they “love” you, but it only turns out to be temporary, until they’ve gotten what they want. Suddenly, you realize that this “love” you’ve been promised is nothing but an empty shell created using those four letters.
I’m not saying that “love” can’t mean love, but simply that as a word, it’s just like any other word, empty until you fill it with emotion. So don’t look for the word, but expand your view and look within words for love. If you’re too busy looking for “love,” you’ll miss the love within every “sweet dreams” and every “drive safe,” or whatever it is that someone may be putting their love into for you.
