A reason to say I love you.


A year ago, he would have looked at her with so much passion that she blushed.

He would have said things that made her believe - without as much as a trace of a question - that no one had, and would ever have as much reason to love her as he has.
A year ago, the fact that both of them moved in entirely separate circles, with neither having too much of an interest in the other was okay. (It would have been too boring to be in love with a man who did the same thing as you for a living.)


A year ago, she wouldn’t have heard him tap his feet impatiently while he waited for her to finish ranting out about the tough day at work.It may have been because he was more discreet then, or perhaps it was just that she felt too distrait in his presence - Because a year ago, every time he kissed her, it was as though it was the last time he could.
Now not too much was spoken. They were so used to understanding each other without talking that they habitually believed their looks more than their words. That was the natural thing.

The picture is from a Nescafe coffee bar in the city.
Valentines day, I have always believed is one for he chocolate companies and card makers - too clich├ęd for my taste. But maybe there is another bearing. Many - like them - may be looking for a reason to say "I love you" again.
Happy Valentines day, everyone!

brother,the picture is good.can understand the eagerness of the photographer.sure not an everyday scene.

brother, what if the matter is just more than a break up, more than a yet another dumping story,more than a valentines day,
more than a bad day at work..

what if his father is in hospital,his brother or friend met with an accident,what if this guy has recurring doubts of his own sexual orientation.

dont make him a subject of pity.it could be more than a valentines day. what if it was any other day.

forgive me and delete this comment.

@usha: the hand clasp was the centerpiece.
@jina: hey welcome back girl, how you been? i'll go check your blog now. been a long time since i went there last.

@anon: As much as I appreciate your concern, I really feel it is out of place. The text bears no relation to the people in the picture, and is purely my take on a subject, rather than the photo itself.
If the people in there think it is inappropriate, I'd take it off.
Thanks for coming by, and please leave a name the next time around.
