As per the saying, love is a feeling which most of the people know, but only few feel it. Love is not something which you can catch with your hand, it is something which have to be linked with the palm-lines. They say if you drown in water you die. You should swim to be alive. But it is exactly the opposite when it comes to love.
You can feel alive in love, only if you fall in love, only if you drown in love. Else you will just float on the surface of the love. At present we all think we are in love just because we are on the surface of the love.
So here is a story that will describe how deep is love.
In a small town, there was a boy whose passion was in writing. He was fond of Sun and moon, and always used to write about Sun and moon. In his opinion images are just visual representation of words, and nothing else. And there was a girl, as hot as sun, as beautiful as moon, passionate about painting. In her view, words just mis-lead the actual meaning of an image. (*sometimes true*).
Both of them were bloggers. Let’s say on dontmess.com. They met each other there. They fell for each other’s work to such a level that the guy started loving the images and the girl, the words. Finally they decided to marry. On the day of their marriage, he asked “Do you love me?”. She replied with anxiety “Yes”. They were married. Happily? Let’s find out.
**After 2 months, the situation was like this. **
They hardly talked to each other. They just wanted to prove each other by excelling in each other’s work. They thought this is love. Boy took some time for the girl, but the girl was so busy in her work with words. After few days boy also started concentrating on his work of paintings.
She used to write on Sun and moon. She was in love with them. She felt sad for Sun and the moon.
Her feelings for Sun:
“I know how it feels like to be admired by people, but still no one is ready to live with you.”
Her feelings for Moon:
“At least you have stars as companion.”
Her feelings for stars:
“People look at you when have a wish. People look for their loved ones, who left this world, in you. Because people are aware that humans doesn’t dwell in complete moon, they dwell in broken stars.” And used to conclude with small paintings of Sun,moon and stars.
He used to watch at the moon, and painted Moon with different intensities. He used to conclude with a short description about her, ” I always called you my moon, and you proved it. A perfect object that can be stared only from a distance.”
They both loved each other. But never expressed it. They were so much in their work, with their passion inter-exchanged. Their love floating on the surface.
One day the boy gathered enough courage to invite her for a date. For the first time, he took her to a sea-shore. After 10 minutes of pin-drop slience, the boy started the conversation.
“Hi, do you know me?”
She too began.
“Ha. Yes. The one who writes on Sun and moon? Yeh?
“Ha. Right. But used to. Now, I just paint them. So do you love me?”
(He repeated the only dialogue he uttered on their day of marriage. He was expecting the same answer by her which he got that day.)
” No. I love Sun and Moon.” She said.
He was shocked. ” H H How come?”
“Because they give us love and light.”
“No, you love them just because they are away from you. You don’t have to stay with them. You don’t have to roam with them. You don’t have to go for a date with them. Once they start coming down for you, you will start hating them.” , the boy fired back.
“No. If I love say I love someone, I love them till the end.”
There was a silence for few minutes.
” I love you. ”
This time it was the girl who broke the silence, ” Do you?”
“No. I love Sun and moon” , boy replied playfully.
“Why?” girl asked waiting for a fitting reply.
“Because, just now Sun and moon gave me, my LOVE AND LIGHT back.”
Now, they were married with each other. Until then they were married to each other’s works. They now drowned in love.
Love and light. Thanks for reading.
