I was going through the blog of this guy (American Desi) who calls himself Libran Lover. One of his posts, titled “Heartache for R!” was quite provocative. A couple of months back, I remember waking up one morning and walking like a cauliflower to the fridge to get some juice. On the fridge door we had this small poster of Avril Lavigne. What caught my eye were these tiny word magnets eloquently placed on the poster spelling “you need love”. Supposedly, my then flat-mate Aaron (who’s now back in Malaysia), improvised it – maybe for me to recollect it today when I read Libran Lover’ romantic melancholy. The poster is not there anymore, and the magnets fell-off, but it seems there’s a pebble mark through the jungle for us to find the way back home.
The heart, I’ve discovered, is a funny little thing. Everytime you lose a piece of it, it only gets that much heavier!
