I don't believe in love at first sight, but I believe in a gravity that will pull you like a 40 ton chunk of stone towards someone in a heated trajectory of emotional self-immolation. Love, well that's all in the impact.
I don't really believe in love at first sight. I believe that we all have an 'idea' of a person we want to love and sometimes we see someone who, outwardly, aligns to that idea. I've found that, more often than not, it passes as you get to realize that the person is NOT the idea and the idea is never (not fully) going to be found in a person; it's just a series of (often unreasonable) expectations that we like to use to create trouble for ourselves. •
That's not to say that I don't believe in unexplained attraction; I very much do. Call it chemistry, energy or gravity: it will pull you towards someone and lock you to them like a tide to the shore, or an moon orbiting a planet. They carry the scent of a memory on them and they feel like someplace you once were; where you felt safe and comfortable and free to be yourself.
Sometimes we mistake them for lovers when they are meant to be friends. Sometimes we mistake them for friends when they were meant to be lovers. In either case we (too often) miss an opportunity and have to wait another lifetime for them to come around again, pulled by that same gravity, carrying that same familiarity but hidden behind a different set of eyes and a less familiar smile. •
Sparks from the same flame, searching through lifetimes, looking to light the night sky together again.
