they say you don't know what you got 'til it's gone / / they say that your darkest hour comes before your dawn

Love is giving someone the power to destroy you...but trusting them not to;

That is the most pessimistic outlook on love I have ever heard of. It basically sounds like love is this super awesome feeling but it'll kill you if you give it to the wrong person. It's like saying, "Sky diving is jumping out of a plane not knowing if your parachute will actually open... but trusting that it does." Shityes, people get hurt from love, and shityes, people die from sky diving, but the fear isn't the reason why people do it. It's for the thrill. The pure rush you get when suddenly realise, in the split second of a moment, that every little worry you have means absolutely nothing. You feel like you could take on the world. You feel invincible, and that is something no one should be afraid of.

What it should say is this:
Love is giving someone the power to make you happy... and trusting them to do that.
