Now call me a sap, softee or something synonymous with the two, but the passion strewn about in the words of the aforementioned post was one of the most beautiful things I've come across of late. Admittedly, it left me both appreciative and envious at the same time. Appreciative, because I could identify with - and respect - the genuine sincerity of the author's words for the one special person in his life, but envious because it's been so long that I've had similar, passionate sentiments for another human being. In a selfishly twisted way, reading those beautiful words earlier today was as depressing an act as it was uplifting. But I'm OK with that, for now. An occasional emotional gut check is never a bad thing. Like any blow, it's painful at first, but over time eventually makes you stronger. Such is the reality of the human condition.
To both Kemibe and Khaulein: I don't know either of you outside of this fantasy blogland, but you've got a beautiful thing going. A sincere kudos.
It's about the passion.
