Front Seat @ Love Stories
Disclaimer: I know it’s got to be an utter lack of testosterone in the minds of some but I love, love stories.
I admire the overwhelming attempt to redirect the directions of clueless pupils and wandering lips into the narrow barrel; the person of interest.
Their lover companion, sacred friend, significant other… whatever your preference of unique title dubbing suggests.
I, have a great deal of respect for an action flick with a plot,
But it does not come close to, will never ever top…
A love story.
So in viewing season I take to the front rows,
Arm around my casual-kisser date flocking to the neck-tilt seats you know,
With bags of buttered field puffs and sweet stuff, quietly silencing cell phones simultaneously they dim from their glows.
Carbonated selections flow against gravity following suction upward straw-like plastic tubings called “straws.”
Introductions subside and the setting is settling in,
We’ve connected with the leading actor and the fairytale begins to thicken.
There’s no reason for me to go into any more details other than guy loves girl or girl loves guy or someone loves someone or something else, etc.
What I love about it all is the romance,
The uncommon dance of chivalry, extinct in today’s courting rituals, the acts of chance,
The pleasant feeling when intentional moments gesture love.
I like the feeling of thinking, “I wanna treat my wife that way.” Then I go home and try!
I love the inspiration and so what I stole the foundation of it all from a movie, the most important thing is the display of the love interest vested within whatever I invest!
Then again maybe it’s just me and the entire world surrounding me does not remember the days of poetic love pouring onto relationships like snow in deep winter; heart shaped flurries!?
In that case I’ll be ignorant to the usual acceptance of mail order brides, family selection or bank balance choosing and continue to enjoy alone,
my love stories.
