LOVE

Where do I start?

Where will it end?

The beginning, I can barely register. The ending I do not know…I can only hope…and pray…

I have always known of your presence, even when I did not know of your existence. Yes, confusing, isn’t it? For you, for me….How can that be possible, this instinctive knowledge about someone about whom you did not know till a short while ago. I could sense you in my life; I could feel you out there….

But somehow I am not surprised that we share so much despite never knowing about each other for almost all our lives till sometime back. But then it never stops to amaze me either. How is it possible despite being so different, we can be so similar? Different in culture, religion but similar in all other aspects…our thoughts, emotions, interests…our lives almost mirrored….parallel or reflected…..

For someone who needs a lot of space, I do not mind giving it up all for you. This very thought used to scare me. I always felt alone in a crowd, kind of detached…there but not quite there. Open to small talk yet closed up. You set me free. Just like that. You calm my volatile, ever changing mind, you soothe me with your silent presence, you give direction to my thoughts, and you bring out the best in me. With you silences speak so much. I never thought I can be so articulate with anyone. You touch my mind, my heart and my soul. I thank God for knowing you. I am blessed for you being there in my life.

I am reminded of the Moody Blues song, I know you're out there somewhere.
Opposites do attract. The hard part is keeping the polarities equal without everything spinning out of control.
Sounds like you've achieved this.
Now if only you could 'bottle it' and sell it.

Thanks Pat!

Oh homo, wish I could bottle it but then why even try holding something which is transcendental?

The spendid surreal image you use instead of a personal photo lured me a comment on Darius' site. Having read your utterly lovely post, I am glad to find myself hooked.

As lovely as a flower can be.

Feeling "its" presence is the best any of us can do. That's it!

Darius said...

Eloquent. For most couples, it's a feeling that doesn't last. But I've known maybe a couple couples where it did, so hope it does for you -
