Love is a verb.

Not entirely sure if that’s grammatically correct, but for me, Love is a verb.

It’s not just a word.

See with my type of love, you don’t just say you love or think it

Love is an action

You have to act it out

Love me hard but also love me tenderly

Love me in the things you say and the things you do

Love me in the way you talk to me and the way you hold me

Love me in the way you look into my eyes and the way you smile at me

Love me, you actually have to love me and not just say you do

Be tender and passionate and affectionate

Be tender

Be gentle with me; talk to me and encourage me

Be kind to me; thoughtful gestures and courteous words

Be passionate

Be excited; to see me and to be with me

Be fervent; showing the warmth and intensity of your love

Be affectionate

Be devoted; to us and this beautiful thing that we’re building

Be doting; uncritically fond of me and of us

Love isn’t the gifts you buy me, it’s not a crush or just a word

Love isn’t the amount of times you say “I love you” even though if you truly mean it I’d like to hear it often

Love isn’t empty promises that aren’t backed up with actions

It’s not just the pictures of us you throw all over internet

It’s not the adorable pulsing heart you leave in my instant messages

It’s not in the empty promises or jealousy

Love doesn’t hurt. It’s not addiction or possessiveness

Love isn’t just need and attachment

It’s not lust or fear and should not be forced

Love is a verb

It’s an action

It’s in the things you do and the way you do them

It’s not perfect, it’s totally forgiving

“It’s not something you hold or something you scream

Yeah love ain’t a thing,

Love is a verb!” — John Mayer
