When a simple I LOVE YOU takes your blues away, you sleep with a smile on your face, you wake up with a wider smile on your face and everything about the world seems picture book perfect. Cupid has thus struck.You have a certain shine in your eyes. And you can't wait for the rest of your life to begin.
Childhood sweethearts, college buddies, online dating, neighbours, colleagues and a thousand other ways to fall in love.
Time passes by and you start wondering, "Is this the person I fell in love with?"
And slowly it starts getting different, the love, now without the shine and charm is just another habit, just another part of life. And you start resenting anything that's related to the four lettered word: valentines, romance, dating and zillion more words.
And you curse your stars for the four lettered word.
Time passes by and the four lettered word is now a more comfortable feeling. You love the way your life blends with that person. You still smile when you wake up and see the person sleeping beside you. You still smile when you snuggle and sleep at night. The shine's still there in the eyes. If not bright but evident enough for your love to see.
And you thank your stars for the four lettered word. Blink Blink.
