What If ... ?

love is a place
& through this place of
love move
(with brightness of peace)
all places
yes is a world
& in this world of
yes live
(skilfully curled)
all worlds
love is a place... (58) by e. e. cummings

Love needs a place , in our heart , in our mind.

Love needs a Yes to come out , to let in.

Yes is a word that breaks the spell of No. Love is a word too that bears magic. Why then so hard to release its sound? To let "I love you" out.

A hard bargain of "what ifs" in the mind. We count the pros and cons. Again and again seeking in the dictionary for the definition. We check the meanings with our feelings. How confusing and how foolish !

Rehearsals to an empty chair next to us. We close our eyes and he is there.

Endless scenarios with all the details written. He'll say this or that , he'll do this or that. All the possibilities are captured for the writers pen. How foolish. Human but still foolish.

Rehearsals to an empty chair next to us. We open our eyes and he is not there. Nothing was told.

But what if ........?

But what if nothing has to be told, described, defined? What if forgetting all those definitions, words, and assumptions ?
After all love in not just a word. Its all those feelings take us and travel us to magical places. Its all those little things that our senses absorb and transformed into a little key that unlocks our heart.

Love needs just a place , in our heart , in our mind.

And I think I have a free chair for him .
