Falling in LOVE...

I stand on top of the skyscraper like a superhero when I take the fall. Falling in love is exactly like falling from a highest building. I immerse in those glistening silver clouds; the soft smooth winds make me float like a carefree eagle. The comforting breeze runs through me as if I am transparent.  It generates an intense feeling of happiness, the type of happiness only a child get. It is innocent, naive and pure in nature. On the contrary it is not ephemeral but rather infinite and continuous. Your tremendous care makes me believe the whole world is deeply in love with me. Little by little each day this abundant concern and attention will bloom and nurture our love.

Suddenly the weightlessness starts to fade unexpectedly; as some heavy burdens begins to weigh us down. These depressing forces are all the little fights, the doubts, and the unsolved problems. Most crucial constituent of it are our fears. This massive outrageous negativity begins to burn the wings of the angel.

When we got low enough, lost our wings then gravity started its work. The gravity being the hurdles and crisis we face in love. This gravity pulls me down to earth so fast while I was still quite unaware of the outcomes. It grew stronger each passing day and dragged me down faster. In the end all I could do was to give up and obey.

Shortly I hit the ground. I hit the ground so hard that I don’t find myself in one piece. My soul is crushed and shattered in little pieces scattered all over the place. The ground I lay on is black and deserted. It is unusually quiet; deaf, dumb, blind and senseless. It ends here.

Maybe someday I will get strength enough to take this fall again. Till then I lie here numb. The good part is true love only grows you even if it leaves you. True love ignites the light in you forever, it never destroys. If you are ready to take the falls watch for these mistakes. Remember to stay weightless, and keep flying. True love is extremely rare these days; once you find it don’t lose it.
