Love means, something you really care about, and your love is unconditional to them.you love that something so much, till you can't even express how you feel.I love someone, and thats everybody.so love means, your emotions for them are unconditional.

Those words are beautiful but love transcends words.

Much of this does not make sense. You need to rethink how you structure it and be more careful in what you are actually saying. as fun as it is to let your words flow from your heart, the success of the piece can be multiplied by simply ensuring it flows correctly.

It is a nice idea, (a description of agape?) but lacks any merit on an artistic level. The language is unadventurous and boarders on sounding "matter-of-fact".

You begin a sentence by discussing the love of "something" but end with making the subject about a person, if this is simply "poetic-license" to convey the idea that you love inanimate objects as much as real people then I apologize and suggest you disregard my comment.

Best of luck.

to andrewdust,we alays have different ways of explaining.
yes but unless you are being overly poetic its best to explore these different ways within the helpful rules of the English language... this is an English forum right? It can be difficult to write successfully in such an unorthadox way; even when one is being poetic, clarity of your message should come first, or else it'll defy the point of writing in the first place (unless you are perhaps experimenting with a personal diary codeEmotion: wink )
It's hard to improve on this:

"If I speak in the tongues of men and of angels, but have not love, I am a noisy gong or a clanging cymbal.

"And if I have prophetic powers, and understand all mysteries and all knowledge, and if I have all faith, so as to remove mountains, but have not love, I am nothing.

"If I give away all I have, and if I deliver my body to be burned, but have not love, I gain nothing.

"Love is patient and kind; love is not jealous or boastful; it is not arrogant or rude. Love does not insist on its own way; it is not irritable or resentful; it does not rejoice at wrong, but rejoices in the right.

"Love bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things.

"Love never ends."

Here is the way I expressed an immature love in one of my essays:

"I was more than crazy about Glenda; I was in love with her. I was more than in love with her; she was my first love. I thought about her, dreamed about her, fanaticized about her. She was always on my mind. That she was three years younger didn’t matter. I wanted her, not for a sex partner, but for a girl friend . . ..

"First loves may be lost, but they are never forgotten. And when that love is not returned, the lover builds an even stronger case for the one loved. A love not returned distorts feelings about the one loved as well as about the lover. Being shy only amplifies the feelings. And I was shy, and I was in love, and my love was not returned."

You should definitely explain why your love was not returned. The reader would like to know more about that.

i think that your poem is very true and that the word LOVE isn't something u just say just to say it its something u mean from the bottom of your heart

Interesting definition. If the person who you love decided to have a sex change would you still love them just the same? That would be under the definition of unconditional.
