I offer you my love in the form of a flowering plant in a pot. Roses, dandelions, or tulips perhaps - the plant is healthy, vivid and beautiful, in full bloom. You enjoy looking at it, the utter joy that its colours and fragrance bring! But you can't just simply stare at it. You must tend to it, water it everyday, put it out in the sun, remove the weeds that might grow in the soil. In short, you must take care of it. Otherwise, its leaves will wilt, the flowers will dry out, the whole plant will wither and eventually die.

My love is like that, it needs to be nurtured and nourished. Or else, my heart will just stop beating for you. I would never ever want that to happen, but we both know that it could. My love for you, on its own - and despite how poignant and powerful it is now - is not enough. A heart still needs another one to survive.
