You give me that look that's like laughing
With liquid in your mouth
Like you're choosing between choking
And spitting it all out
Like you're trying to fight gravity
On a planet that insists
That love is like falling
And falling is like this
-Ani Difranco

One of my favorite songs. 

The truth is... I think love should make you feel like you can fly, not like you are falling.  As much as I understand that when you begin to find love with someone it sometimes it feels like you are tumbling, unable to stop yourself, downhill into a pit of feelings.  An action that we cannot stop.  Something that happens beyond your control. 

What if we changed how we look at it?  What if stole a line from the Redbull people and said, "Love, it gives you wings!".  I wonder if people would still do the things they do, accept poor relationships and excuse poor behavior from their significant others if we said that love is supposed to uplift versus love is something you fall into and can't get out.  If we told people that love was supposed to feel like the wind blowing your hair, maybe some people wouldn't accept the kind of relationships that are comparable to falling in a tar pit.
