“I just want to love someone so deeply.”
From birth to death, it is natural to be convinced of this. But isn’t love being sold at a great discount now? Isn’t it the time when people are shouting, “Look at me, love me”, anytime, anywhere, in any form? When did love become so abundant in the world? There is too much love. Too much, too fast, like a flood. We are already suffocating, love is no longer anything, we act out of love because we think we know enough, and our hearts are being torn to pieces for love. Is that what love is?

“Ich möchte einfach jemanden so sehr lieben.”
Von der Geburt bis zum Tod ist es natürlich, davon überzeugt zu sein. Aber wird die Liebe jetzt nicht zu einem sehr niedrigen Preis verkauft? Ist es nicht die Zeit, in der die Menschen schreien: “Seht mich an, liebt mich”, jederzeit, überall, in jeder Form? Wann wurde die Liebe in der Welt so reichlich vorhanden? Es gibt zu viel Liebe. Zu viel, zu schnell, wie eine Flut. Wir sind schon am Ersticken, Liebe ist nichts mehr, wir handeln aus Liebe, weil wir meinen, genug zu wissen, und unsere Herzen werden für die Liebe zerrissen. Ist es das, was Liebe ist?
