"Love is patient, love is kind. Love is slowly losing your mind."
Well, I certainly don't know about the part of love being patient and kind, but I'm more than a hundred percent sure that it makes you lose your mind.
Love is ruthless. Love is a scheming, money and energy sucking leech. Love can give a normal person a one hundred and eighty degree turn into a love drunk hypnotized zombie who constantly wails, "your wish is my command."
This disease can turn a smart, intelligent, sensible and a reasonable man or woman into an inane, insane and an irrational being!
Take Othello the moor as an example. Who was a general. Who made war schemes and won great a many fights in the battlefield. But when it came to love, he was as blind as a bat. He killed Desdemona on the grounds of doubt of another man who neither was close or related to either of the lovers.
We have heard of Shah Jahan and Mumtaz, and the story of their undying love. A monument which stands till today symbolizing Shah Jahan’s love for his beloved wife. But little do people how he married Mumtaz who was his eighth (finally!) wife. History tells that Shah Jahan purposely killed Mumtaz’s first husband for his desire to be with her. After all a king gets what he wants. The point being is that love hinders in making the right decision. A person stops thinking and goes against the laws and will the wills of the world unaware of who he hurts or how it affects others.
Being in love is not crime fellow beings but losing the element of rational thinking makes the entire purpose a sham. It is an emotion that arises out of likeness or fondness of beauty or looks or a gesture. And rationality doesn’t link much to it, in fact, at all. If a person happened to like an elephant then no power on earth can make him change his mind that he is in love with an elephant except his will. He or she will block the thoughts of a thousand sane people but listen to one thing he calls his foolish heart.
Thus I summarize...
