You

You

i was mesmerized by none other than your eyes so alluring, your smile so enchanting. and your lips, oh! your lips how they speak of words only you with a great mind could ever speak of.

it may sound unreasonable for some, but what else is desire if we see reason in it? what else is the power of passion if we wish it to be right from the start? and what else is love when we need a reason to fall? after all, isn’t loving the very reason for love?

my mind could always argue that my heart could only agree on how love is so strong, powerful, and true. for when it is, no amount of rational reasoning could make you even stop loving.

and for that, my dear, i could do the sweetest, the most romantic for you; the sweetest like when Rachel got off the plane for Ross of “Friends”. the most romantic as Heathcliff of “Wuthering Heights” declared that he is one in body and soul with Catherine.

i am your only Rachel, and i will definitely get off the plane for you. i am your only Catherine, and i am certainly one in body and soul with you.

i will love you with the love of the eagle to soar higher. i will love you with the love of the flowers for the sunshine. i will love you with the love of the moon for the sun. i will love you just as much as i have loved you back in the days when we were young and careless.

the birthplace of my love for you is from somewhere too far to walk, from as far away as the most unreasonable desire, the most devastating hope; a place where reason isn’t reasoned at all, and hope, no matter how devastating, remains hopeful.

For Reena’s Exploration Challenge

Prompt:

“It came from somewhere too far to walk, from as far away as the most unreasonable desire, the most devastating hope.” – Sharmishtha Mohanty in Thirty two nights and dawns
