words are the by far the worst way of communication. what can you say with words to really express how you feel? 
explain to me what love is.

see, you can't.
there are no words to adequately express what the feeling 
"love" is. you can try all you want, but you'll never be able to truly grasp the meaning. and so it goes with every word. you can't describe how a pear tastes with words. meg ryan tried describing it to nicolas cage once, and she failed miserably. words can explain a lot, yes, but can you really express how you're feeling when your whole world is collapsing around you? or when you can feel your life finally turning into all that you wanted?

so when i say i love you. or i miss you. those words. those "signs". are not what i mean. because my words. your words. while wonderful and sweet, mean nothing  
unless they are followed by feelings.
by actions that surpass

anything a word could ever mean

like new batteries

"she wants to know if i love her, that's all anyone wants from anyone else, not love itself but the knowledge that love is there, like new batteries in the flashlight in the emergency kit in the hall closet."
extremely loud and incredibly close

by all means paint

“If you hear a voice, within you say ‘you cannot paint', then by all means paint, 
and that voice will be silenced.” 
–Vincent Van Gogh

after being hurt before, i made a point to steer clear of complete dependence on another person. but this isn't desperate dependence. this is wonderful independent dependence. because i am complete without you. but you make me so much better. 
you complete me beyond completion.
