Love stories! They are like broken glass beads thrown ashore to the dead sea! You, as a lone bystander, may happen to step upon the sharp ones every other fortnight! Then, you may bleed a little and your lips may sin to mumble a soft curse at their beauty. When that happens… don’t fret away from taking another step!
In every love story, there comes a time when jasmines begin to smell like lavenders. That’s when you must pick your tears up and run!
Because nothing heals better than the sweet nectar which oozes out of those flowers… and healing, my friend, is a scary business!
Here’s a funny thing about scars! They walk the face of this planet with a tiny bag of peace hanging down their shoulders. When you happen to bump into one, the thorns may sting you for a second… but, sooner than you realise, you will find yourself swooning to the tunes of their tranquillising sorcery.
Having said that, love is a nightmare to the broken and boozed. It is the kind of torment which makes wolves howl on dark and lonely nights.
The worst part?
Once you trip and fall on the side of this road, you won’t wake up before dawn. Your eyes will be left yearning for the dark.
Befoolery, in our world, is a celebrated virtue… and love has always been a fool’s master trick!
So, for once, let yourself fall for the trickery and gasp at the magic. For once, make your jasmines smell like lavenders! Healing must be a scary business, but since when have the broken started shying away from fear, huh?
