It’s very known how love puts us in a fascinating state of being, driven by passion and sensuality. It takes us on an endless cruise of emotions to the one we love. The one who could be the lover, the child, the friend of the soul, or one’s self. Love brings warmth when it’s cold and makes us younger when we’re old. It brings us together even when we’re still apart, with every touch of a hand it also touches the heart.
