|Abstract: ||Love is confusing indeed. But it becomes easier to comprehend when you delve deeper into the chemical changes set in motion inside the body when love strikes.|
IT was their best time of the day. The walk through the Club Park. He held her hands gently and with a heavy heart started humming the lines of the latest song “We were both young when I first saw you, I close my eyes and the flashback starts.” It was Love Story by Taylor Swift and described almost vividly the romance between Romeo and Juliet. She just smiled, like always.
Yes! Almost instantly, he knew the feeling that gripped him. He had often wondered about it when he was young. He had been dazed and perplexed since the first time their eyes had met. And after all these years of togetherness, now he knew for sure, that it was indeed Love. Love that was exquisite but yet so complex to understand in the beginning. Love that had bound them together, in sickness and in health, till death do them apart.
Love is confusing indeed. For how can you explain the sudden attraction and feeling of compassion for someone who is but a stranger to you? How can you decipher the complex cascade of emotions that flow through your heart when you come across that someone special? Love is a beautiful feeling, but as complicated as beautiful.
