As writers and poets, we are quite an imaginative bunch of people. We animate dead stuff. We make birds and inspects speak. A natural phenomenon becomes a symbol of hope. A season of rain depicts abject sadness. Well yes, we over do things. But don't forget in the process of looking at the world around us, we are avoiding to look at the person in front of us. It's good to animate and anticipate their love with the words that we write, but once in a while, pay attention to the love they seek. We will always have silence to do our conversations for us. Yet, when they stand right in front of you, for god's sake, speak! If you don't, your secret unspoken words will ricochet right back at you from their so called heart made of stone.
So speak out your heart to the ones who need to hear it. You will save your love that way.
