I have compiled a video for “The Four Letters of Love” book that I want to share with you today.
Oh, so much to do, so much to write and I am a little scared that I may not be up to it but also very excited somehow. As I turned the page on 2011, so have I also turned the page on many other things and I hope this new beginning bears many changes. So, let us start with something cheerful like love.

With so many poems on love, romance books and Hollywood’s fairytales, how does one define love? I am currently compiling a book of poems and short stories on love, but would like it if you can participate in that test I have created. The answers below are my own, which I have made into a one line poem (or close). Pick one that is more to your liking. Is it selfish, hurtful, dreamy, blinded, or confused with desire? Or make up our own.
