The how of love

The mystery of love is that no one knows exactly how it develops

The seed is so quietly placed, a whisper, a phantom that gently nestles into the deepest corner of your heart

Sometimes you feel the placement immediately, the quiet force resonates throughout your body and you just know

You know that you just fell in love

Most of the time, however, the seed has to sprout and develop before we notice something is there

It feels different somehow when you are with that person, there’s a connection you can’t quite explain

You try to explain it away with words like “friend”, “sister”, “brother”, “cousin”

But deep down you know those words aren’t right

Because that person means so much more than you are willing to admit to, even to yourself

Some of us are so dense that the seed has to become full grown, overwhelming the heart to the point where it cannot be ignored

And it is only then that you see just how deep in you are

Just how committed you’ve become and how much you actually like being there

And that moment, when the world shrinks down to you and that person, whether it’s immediately or with time, that’s the moment everyone looks for

That’s the moment you lose a part of yourself, the moment when your heart takes over and you find yourself doing things you swore you would never do

You twist, you bend, you break, you heal, you give in

All for this person

All the while asking yourself “how did this happen?”

Because love is a mystery, a beautiful mystery we would all love to solve, but a journey we seek to go through anyway
