What's love and how do you know you love someone? I know I love my family, but what's the difference between loving a family member and loving a partner. As I ask myself this question, I'm being taught about how Julius Caesar was stabbed to death. I wonder if that's what it feels like to love someone and they use your love to stab you in the back. Love is a sharpened sword that can be used to protect and elongate a relationship, or destroy the hand that allowed for the gaining of that power.
