I’ve been thinking a lot about love lately. One of my best friends just got engaged and we’ve been talking about how she knew that he was her partner for life. Her answer, simple and honestly vague, is that something deep inside her just knew.
There’s no common factor that can explain why sometimes we feel romantic chemistry and sometimes we don’t. There’s no trick to lining up that connection. I’ve always been someone that feels it right away and in my experience, no matter how much time I spend with a person doesn’t change whether or not that spark is there. I do believe that love is a decision, ultimately, but it’s foundation is built upon that invisible force that draws you to each other. It’s frustrating when chemistry just misses or when bad timing prevents the heart from sensing it. There are no set paths to falling in love and that exploration, that heartbreak, that discovery, that journey is why we write.

This is wonderful and so very true! nicely done… if I couldn’t write about love and heartbreak I might go crazy!
Thank you! I’m so thankful to have writing to get it all out.
So very true. Beautifully written. Hope you are able to experience that true love some day, the kind that lasts a lifetime. 😉
Thank you so much. Me too!
I like the way you carry the title concept through this poem. Favorite bits: not quite chemistry and equation/we can’t solve. And your note on this post really struck me today, to the point that I made a redacted poem out of it: http://www.accents-publishing.com/blog/2015/06/15/thinking-about-love/. I hope you don’t mind – I gave you credit. Should I add a link to send folks back here?
Wow thanks that means so much! And you can link back if you’d like.
Wow I just took a look at what you did! That is quite cool! Thanks again!
Your words inspired me. 🙂
