Susan M. Conway: Love is a lesson.

Love is a lesson.

Love is a lesson in letting go.

Love is a lesson in never holding on too tightly.

Love is a lesson in the sanctity of vulnerability.

Love is a lesson in leaving and being left.

Love is a lesson in loving yourself when everyone and everything else is gone.

Love is a crash course in the kind of full frontal nudity it takes to say-baby, please don’t go.

Love is the skinned knees of your sobbing heart begging for another bruise, it is the beast behind your bloodied captive tongue, the boulder in your caving throat, love…

Love is and love is not; be ever-seeking, steadfast, and unwavering in your knowledge of both.

Love is the question and the answer, the heart full of fuck yes, and the pain; love is the forest fire, and love is also the rain. Love is a lesson in redemption, and love taught me my name.
