Love as is
Some people just don’t leave you. They stay with you forever and forever. Whether they’re in your neighborhood, overseas, or cross-country. Their influence, their impact, their imprint is ingrained, stamped, and tattooed all over you. No matter, what you do for the rest of your life, you can’t escape. And whether the strong presence is right next to you or imagined, it is elusive and forever making you sad.
How to explain?
How to explain such strong emotion that you cannot control, that you cannot direct, that you cannot understand? That you can only accept and make part of your life? It sleeps, it slumbers, it dreams, it tries to wake up, it falls back and stumbles on. Oh God, you are trying me, and I remain humble.
