The Strength of Love?
The strength of love is a strange and marvellous thing.
It tells us how far it can be and never stops stretching further.
It may also tell us things that we would rather not wish to find out or ever know.
It can awaken us from childish dreams and bring us into the cruelties of adult life, evolved around the game of relationships.
Please tell me it is more than a game?
The strength of love?
I see those around me and I know how we long to throw off every hindrance that is holding us back from loving.
People in a crowded room. And there, two hearts within two chests secretly long with all the power they posses, to meet. A man and a woman. Each glance at the other and speak of a thousand feelings with just one look.
But there is always something that stops them; Responsibilities, Society, Culture, Rules, Right and Wrong. The night ends, they smile and then wave goodbye and the days rolls on again.
How complex beings we are!
To love and hate in the same breath, to feel and hurt, to cry and laugh, to connect and distance, to rejoin and separate.
Would you ask now to know what the other is thinking?
I fear your innocence would be lost forever. But actions speak of a million words.
How can one touch of the hand or one smile from the lips say 'I adore you?'
What makes the other respond with the certainty of that?
There needs to be a connection to understand, a joining of minds, two souls reaching out to find the other.
How I wish childish love didn't exist, how I wish broken marriages could never occur, how I wish minds couldn't change, how I wish love could never dry out, how I wish spirits could never give up. And how I wish for humans to never hurt.
But we learn and we hurt. And we love and we grow. And we live and we know.
And from all of it, I know I will chose to keep loving and keep growing and keep learning and keep knowing and keep living and I shall hurt- just because love loves to love.
And, I do, and I will, Love.
