What is love?

I don't fall in love. I love differently. The word "fall" is meaningless. Perhaps a "coup," to be hit by love, yes. But I'm more generous now. Passion is blind and being blind you only see your own reflection in the eyes of others. Passion creates obstacles and pain that block what love is about. Love opens you up. It's more generous, more fun. It's less dark.
