A Love from Out of Nowhere

From out of nowhere, directly into your blindspot, comes a love you never expected.

A spark started by the most seemingly mundane of introductions. 



“How are you?”

“I’m fine, and you?”

1, 2, 3, 4.

Feeling the rhythm, falling into beat, your hearts gradually dance ever closer in sync.


“…my place?”

“Sure, why not?”

“Really? Okay, let’s go!”

1, 2, 3, 4.

One smile after another. Kiss by kiss. Tears over each shoulder to lean on.


“What’s up?”

“…I love you.”

“…I love you, too.”

1, 2, 3, 4.

Passionate energy. Thrilling touch. Intimate warmth.


“You’re handsome.”

“And you’re beautiful.”

“Thanks, you cutie pie.”

1, 2, 3, 4.

Dangerous romance. Its sweet seduction & intoxicating fulfillment. An allure to hope for the simplest of life’s pleasures.


“Yes, sweetie?”

“…what is it?”

“I think I’m pregnant.”

1, 2, 3, 4.

A samba, rumba, familia.


“Baby, listen…”

“You can cry…”

“It’s not your fault.”

1, 2, 3, 4.

Broken dreams. Shattered hopes. Unfulfilled desires.


“Hold tight.”

“Hold me close.”

“I love you, regardless.”

1, 2, 3, 4.

Propping each other up. Making one another better. Evolving as one.


“Yes, baby?”

“…what is it?”

“Let’s go to Thailand.”

1, 2, 3, 4.

Finding your own path together. One that is uniquely yours — special in its own form, wondrous in its own development. Unlike the time you first met: totally out of the blue, completely and utterly ordinary. Who knew?


“What’s that?”

“I like you.”

“I like you too.

Love takes many forms, different paths, surprising timings. Whatever the dance, enjoy it for what it is: a gift. Something that is given without an expectation of anything in return.

True love.

1, 2, 3, 4.



Dear M.,

Hopefully, if you’ve read this, I haven’t embarrassed you too much for you to go hide under a blanket, but knowing you, that’s probably exactly what you’re gonna do right after reading this — and for that, I’m sorry. On-my-knees-sorry. I love you, though, so don’t be too embarrassed.

Oh, I made things worse?

Okay, let me say goodbye, so I can help you cope.

Bye, everyone. Until next time,
