Love and lust are like identical twins, similar on the outside and often mistaken for one another. But on the inside, there is a world of difference.
One is the jangle down your neck when you meet their eyes, the entrapment of your heart from the moment you meet, the locking of eyes across a crowded room. The other is the warm smile that spreads across your face when you see them, the fresh spring that awakens in your heart when they laugh, the amazed wonder you feel when they come up with something new, and amazing.
On the same token,they both have downfalls. One, the lack of the fire that used to drive you, the removal of the perfect mask that a not-so-perfect personality used to lurk behind, the lack of arguments and laughter and anything meaningful at all, really. The other, the arguments, the disagreements, sometimes falling outs, jealousy and anger.
One is worth your time. The other is not.
