Love is a tricky and complex emotion. It can effect you in so many intense and crazy ways that it is hard to even begin trying to describe it. I have only found one other thing that has the similarities of what love can do. That thing is LSD. Tripping acid is like experiencing love within a day, it is the only thing that closely resembles the warmth, amazement, destruction and overall mind @#$% that love causes.
During the beginning, as you take the LSD, you are not totally sure if it is really affecting you. You cannot tell if it is really there, you feel something but it is small and only slightly out of the ordinary. Not different enough to focus in on it, you just feel better. That feeling of peacefulness continues to increase until you can definitely point out that it is there. You can feel the LSD in your body, you can feel the love. Soon the way you perceive the world changes. Everything is brighter, more colorful. You can find beauty in anything. Everything in this new world you’ve created for yourself is perfect, you have fun just existing in it. This is true happiness.
But it doesn’t stay like this forever. This beautiful new reality your mind has produced is not actually perfect and cannot continue with its original amazement forever. It eventually begins to collapse. Things will start becoming unrecognizable. The things you once saw so much beauty in morph, becoming dull and horrifying. But by then, you are stuck. It reeled you in with a false reality, and now it is too late to escape without the harsh end. You remember what life once was but you do not feel it anymore, now it just terrifies you and plays with your mind.
It continues to hurt and hurt until you finally break away, you try to block it from your mind entirely, you try and sleep it off. But when you wake up the effects are still not gone. You may have fallen back to the world you originally lived in before the experience but everything still hurts. You have crashed and the pain is excruciating. It does get better, it slowly becomes more bearable. You will be able to continue on as you once did with time. But sometimes, its effects on your brain and emotions stick around. It may never go away, it will effect how you think forever.
