These Feelings Won’t Go Away

Sophia meets Dylan at a party and the feelings keep flooding her… she still tries to analyze with her rational mind what is happening exactly and why now…

Words are so relative… we have agreed upon certain combinations of letters and sounds to signify a particular thing, but everyone holds a slightly different concept of the thing itself. Especially when it comes to more abstract notions, such as Love, Freedom, Truth, Joy, Sorrow, Suffering… They are so deep, nearly unfathomable, and everyone is at various levels of knowing them from experience. What for one person is a major cause of suffering, for another can barely scratch the surface of the deep well of hardship they have previously endured. Same is true for Love. The more I live and encounter it, the more I see how many levels and spiral loops there are to it. The Greeks had a neat classification  – platonic love for your friends, erotic love for your lover, empathy for all things alive and difine love that knows no conditions. I wonder where love for somebody who feels like you falls in these categories.
