After a hectic day at work, thinking of pleasant things always uplifts the mood. 🙂

Then what better than to think of the first time you saw her, and felt, ‘Man! Am I even breathing? How can she be so beautiful! Was this what my heart was longing for all the time?

And bam! Your heart begins to shake, and wriggle, all excited, and charged up, trying to break free of its own chains, because it senses a higher freedom in belonging with that someone.

It is the feeling, not of love, but what lies just before it. Surely happens to be beautiful as hell, and you’re like, ‘Now what? How do I go about it? What’s the panacea to my ailing, longing heart?’ 🙂

You meet, you sit together, you talk, you walk, and you blabber a lot. On the phone, over the net, in the cafeteria, in the lecture hall, in the lobby, in the library. Sometimes you spend hours, sitting, standing, waiting, just to get a glimpse of the person you’ve come to like, even you don’t know how or for what reason.

It makes your day better, fills you up with a different energy that nothing could give you. And such things, in my thinking, should not be based upon the weak ground of reasons. Because reasons can break any day, and it shouldn’t mean that love should end too.

It should be like, ‘I love you, and the reason for it is that I love’. 🙂 And how beautiful is that! Surely, if you have reached up to this portion of what I’m writing, there’s a smile upon your face, I can bet, because I can see. 😉

Doing all this, people do end up falling in love with one another, and life takes a lovely turn. There are sparks, and even greater sparks! And all those nights you lie awake are no less than fireworks of poetry: a continuum of an endless, powerful, and beautiful expression of thoughts. You always thought it impossible to write but now you can. Congratulations!

Things that you found to be stupid earlier begin to take on a new definition for you, as you imbibe more and more of the love of your life. You begin to see everything in a new light, the places that felt so dark at times are all filled up and aglow with hope, and happiness, and a sense of belonging.

It is no less than the feeling that may be, just may be you’ve acquired all that you ever wanted in life, because all that you don’t have, and all that you still want will come running to you by itself, because you’ve love on your side. 🙂

I can go on, and on, and on saying things, writing poems, casting spells with words, because for me there’s no end to it. It is just too beautiful. 🙂

Our sweet Valentine’s day is just around the corner, and as I was talking of sparks, I’m sure many will be flying across these few days. So many people will speak out their hearts, and so many will remember their first time. It’s like poetry coming to life from the pages of a book. 🙂

And remember that if you love truly, then Valentine’s day is just another day, because everyday is a valentine’s day. 😉
