How many of you think about this when you tell someone you love them? How do you love them? Do you love there personality, their physical features, their laugh, their family, their connections, what they bring to the table. Do you give great thought to this when you tell it? Do you say it because the other person did, and you didn't know how to respond back, so you've been lying to them this whole time. Do you love them as a friend? Would you die for them? Do you accept them through thick and thin? Do you give the word the kinda of attention it deserves? Did you even read all of the definitions? (secret that wasn't all of them) So if you can't give the definition of love that attention it needs, then can you give the actual feeling or action attention? Are you sure the love will last? Is it even love? Or is it Teenage love?

Teenage Love
It's staying up late for eachother and barely staying awake in class the next day. It's passing each other between classes and stopping to say Hi but end up running to class right before the bel rings. It's going to the mall wandering around hand in hand with a silence that's comfortable. It's watching a movie in the theaters wit his arm slowly creeping onto your shoulder & you resting your head in his arms. It's walking around at night for no reason at all; his chest her head looking at the stars. It's uncertainty of how long it will last, a risk you're both willing to take, even if it means you'll have a broken heart. It's not yet true love, not like, nor lust, nor infatuation, It's teenage love. Here to play with our hearts & never go away
"Hey babe."
"Hi..." *blush*
*stand around idly for three minutes*
-bell-
"SHIT THE BELL." *quick kiss. walk away blushing*
As you walk away and think... I love You.
This is teenage love...

That's what most of you have. You think it's love, because you have this new feeling in you, but it really is just the fact that someone likes you instead of your mother. So think next time. Do yuo really love that special someone, or is it just a new thing you love the idea of?
