'No human being has ever stood so close to my soul as you stand.' I delivered a realism quote by James Joyce to him. He sighed and asked, "No one?" I slightly moved my head towards him and whispered, "Not even me."
He looked into my eyes, the lamp's light shone in his eyes, he squeezed my hand lightly and held my gaze tightly.
If you would ask me what the universe looks like, I would tell you that this moment with him felt like I have tasted the depth of the universe, like I am here just to feel that moment with him.
At that moment I knew that I was going to love this man sitting in front of me in a blue check shirt, with all my blood and bones, with all of my heart and soul, with all of me and all the things more than me. Whatever rush of love was flowing through Lemony Snicket when he wrote, 'I will love you if I never see you again and I will love you if I see you every Tuesday', was flowing through me too at that time.
It's still flowing and I am drowning in it, and I am still here loving him like my last breath. For love doesn't need to see the lover's face every time to stay inside a human, it stays in you like it's a part of your body, it will always, even after the one who made love a part of your body no more stays near your body.
_still_in_messLast stanza♡♡ You defined the delicate word ‘LOVE' with such a grace . As I was reading it with each passing stanza it was making me smile , and imagine the imagery of those words♡ Damn good♡
piyuldwivediThe last stanza and especially the last line is so accurate! Love will stay in you becoming you, engulfing you slowly or bit by bit, people leave but what they made us feel stays even if as a memory, you still can feel them when you dive into nostalgia and I think this is both the most bitter and magical thing that can happen. You are truly amazing! Your words aren't just words they're live unfathomable creatures talking to us ❤
