The Romantic

Love is such a powerful word. Is it a verb, a noun, or an idea? It can be all of those, but to me, to love something/someone is to believe in that idea whole-heartedly. Often, love comes with a painful side. Your love unintentionally lets you down. You don’t get the promotion you worked for. Or in worst cases, the love was greater on your side. ‘The Romantic’ is a nod to my heroes. They see the worst sides of any situation. Even through moments of pain, they continue to love with their whole heart.
