When I Love Someone


Shared by our Featured Writer, Katie Wilhelm.

When I love someone, there’s no questioning it.

It’s not always evident on social media, but rather obvious when you look me in the eyes. You can see the twinkle of love, glistening with childlike wonder somewhere in the ocean of deep blue.

When I love someone, the world ceases to exist while I am in their presence. All that I see are the stars that light up their soul and all that I hear are the angels that sing in my heart. I am paralyzed by the radiance they exude.

When I love someone, it’s beautifully simple. I don’t engage in silly mind games or indulge in petty arguments. And even under the unfortunate circumstance in which a disagreement is sparked, my heart is too much filled with overwhelming admiration and adoration to let it affect me for long.

When I love someone, I cry. I cry because for so long I was unaware that this world could offer me such emotional ecstasy. I weep for the people who will never feel the encouraging warmth of a dream turned into a reality. I shed tears for the beautiful words my soul has been serenaded by.

When I love someone, I am grateful every day that I was graciously given the opportunity to belong to someone else. I savor every touch that soars me beyond the realm of my simple existence and helps me believe in the tangibility of love. I relish in the gentle comfort of their lips pressed against mine and the sweet taste of reciprocated bliss.

I love with all my heart but without conditions.

When I love someone, I am a better person. I smile wider, laugh meaningfully and sing without fear of judgment. I am softened by the electric shock of mutual attraction. I compliment without hesitation and praise with painful sincerity. I care with every ounce of my being. I care about the smallest and most insignificant details, because at the end of the day they are the things that mean the most.

When I love someone, I give my all, which makes getting hurt so much more painful. But even in the darkest depths of heartbreak, love is worth it. Because to me, being in love makes life spectacular. And I am so thankful that I was given the ability to fall in love so deeply.

When I love someone, it is the most magical, beautiful, awe-inspiring experience and I can only hope that in my life someone will love me in the exact same way.
