The Valentine Conundrum

How do you measure love?






By years together?




Souls touched?




Intensity?




Or, because it's a feeling, does every rational measure fail to grasp? Like a floater in one's eye you can never quite focus your mind upon.

Or, on a more cynical take, is love just a name for an endless quest to unwrap the familar and witness the new?



Answer me, truly.

I think I measure love by how much I am willing to give.

Editing to add: Added to how much I am continually willing to give over time.

That's a way I had not considered—but oh, so important.

The value of the love you've received is expressed by how much you're willing to give back.

I find if there isn't a good reciprocity, there's no love. For long, anyway.
