Whether you have one or just have someone in mind. Just take a minute to look over this post and see if anyone spectacular comes to mind. If the answer is yes, post it and see if they may be feeling what you’re feeling. If the answer is no, post it anyway…you never know who reads what you put on here. For me, I know there is a certain someone that is going through this message saying “that fool” but in the next paragraph, I’m all mush… [Warning: I mean that]
So how long has it been since we’ve known each other? Since we’ve said one another’s name for the first time? Since we had that sweeping thought about one another about a future together? At this age, love is wishful thinking- never really being able to discover the true power it has over another person. It is a complex emotion that can tie itself around any other emotion that it chooses and becomes your center. Everything you do, revolves around love, or better yet…that one person that makes you smile just by thinking of their name.
It’s never easy writing a post with the word “love” directed at someone. You want them to know how you feel but words, pictures and body language just doesn’t do the trick. You want to skip the part of telling sometimes because it’s rhetorical and you don’t want to diminish the value of the word. You want to shoot to the future to envision a lifetime with them, but you long for time to stop just hold their hand or keep them in your thoughts a little longer.
My love, is gratifying. To be able to feel as strongly as I do about this special someone is a gift. A privilege never to be taken for granted. The person I love, their name stays in my mind, my conscience can now switch between my own voice, Morgan Freeman [we all have that voice] and theirs. I can feel the person sitting beside me, though they can be hours away. I can close my eyes and put together a movie of the time we spent together. If our love was in a book, it could be a bestseller (none of that Stephanie Meyer stuff).
If you are still reading (bravo), I want you to know that there will always be a special place in my heart and mind for you. I wish I could tell you in person.
That’s you as a cartoon…
Though I am never one of pure emotion, I always feel that it is important to talk about how you feel instead of keeping them cooped up inside. Your words can be your only true vehicle to express how much a person can have an impact on you.
Oh and by the way, I thought you should know I wrote this post on December 31, 2011 at 11:50 from my phone and it is now 12:17. Happy New Year and Valentine’s Day love. If I remember, I will tell you look on Tumblr… I hope you enjoyed the post.
