What is love...

What is love, you asked me. This is love:
...........................................
Two halves have little choice but to join
and yes
they do make a whole
but two wholes
when they coincide....
that is beauty.....
that is love...
(From the book: How To Survive The Loss Of A Love)

this is YOU in comic style. I like your hair. of course i like your poem too! :) beside, i also have the same view, i prefer this style more than "a nite like this" ;)

constance said...

Thanks and :) to del, ascend and marjorie! This is one of my favourite poem...that I would like to share with all, besides being an answer to a friend who asked me this question...

It's sad that most of us are not aware that we might be looking for another half for the wrong reasons...

To georgeousone, I'm glad you like this illo...actually, every piece that I do represents my feelings/mood at the time of drawing...

To Kimi: Thanks. That's my new hairstyle! I've cut off my long hair about a month ago...so now, I don't look like a geisha anymore...the poem is from a book titled: How To Survive From The Loss Of A Love....

if theres one thing in this whole wide world that i cud go on and on and on abt, its love. ah! its indeed amazing the myriad emotions that get invariable attached to it ~ passion, hatred, anger, bliss, jealousy, fear, indifference, pain, joy, shame ~ u name it, and u have it there!

set me thinking again - for the umpteenth time. Evocative post!

:)

The best marriage advice I ever got was that "when two people become one you get two half people." Beautiful picture.

Hi Contance,

Very stylish yet simple illustration. I like it. I thought it would be suitable as a desktop wallpaper...

constance said...

Thanks and :) to all!
Tony, that's very true!
