As I was wandering through the lanes of my mind on a lazy Saturday afternoon with a burger in my hand, I was somewhere lost between pondering about love or burgers or both, but as the sky was beautiful and maybe it was the influence of the songs (Agar tum saath ho and Simply the best) I was listening to, I chose to give my thoughts to love. As I started to think about Love and the complications that come along with it, this is a bit of what went through my mind.
We have so many ideas and expectations of love, as I have written earlier, millennials think love is complicated – Modern Love, but, really
Love is not always dressed in a pretty black dress waiting for you at the end of the hall
Love is at times in jumpers with crooked teeth crossing the road in front of you.
Love is not dinners at restaurants whose name you cannot pronounce,
Love is having cup noodles at 4 a.m. in the winters.
Love is the butterflies you have while holding their hands
Love is looking across the room filled with people and meeting their gaze somewhere in the middle.
Love is not about marriage or societal tags
Love is about seeing through eternity together.
Love is not about being happy all the time,
Love is having the strength to live through the sadness.
Love is dancing in the rain; love is having a bucket of ice cream to ourselves.
Love is in every tiny bit we do. Love is simple, it is us who complicate it by our expectations of love.
And I finally got up to not ponder but dig into the burger, after all love is also in eating a delicious burger.
