She wants to be
Loved more than anything
If she can't find love
She'll look for it anywhere
Settle for less
Accept something
that looks like love
but will never be love
and will never make her heart happy

    My heart hurts reading this. How often do we subconsciously settle for things, this illusion that we think will fill us with meaning? So much so that we lose the depth and worth of what love truly is.

    A short piece but something many can relate to. We cannot find a lasting happiness from something that is merely a mask or shadow of love. If it attempts to deceive us or make us change who we really are, it is not pure.
