Falling in love
and falling in love. When you say “I love you”,
you are making a conscious decision.
You say it because you want to say it.
you have no control over it.
You may or may not want it to happen,
but it happens nevertheless.
It is like a journey planned by someone else,
someone you will never know,
and you are just going along for the ride.
It is not about sex, rather it’s about feelings,
and caring, and sharing, and ecstasy, and compromise.
It’s about mystery, and emotion, and surrender.
going to a movie together,
doing lunch together,
and your sense of individualness.
It’s about giving your loved one space,
and retaining your own as well.
acceptance of your loved one’s desires,
her strengths, his weaknesses.
And it’s about knowing yourself.
but will always come back to you.
And it’s about always “being there” when he does.
It’s about patience and gentleness and space.
