Holding hands

Have you ever held hands with someone for an infinitesimal instance and feel the heaven’s beauty and greatness manifest itself in the same seemingly evanescent yet phenomenally undying moment? A second or two of physical tangency that briefly puts you in a state of delirium and makes you want to shout, “this is what I live for!”

The thesaurus and dictionary could only help conjure a collage of words that attempt to describe the emotional bliss I’m in, and still I feel breathless. Breathless, knowing that no amount of prose could explain or depict my state of mind (or heart?), no matter how hard I try. But at the same time afraid that I may never capture that fleeting moment ever again. Lastly and most of all, grateful for the wonderful things you’ve done to me without you doing a single thing. Don’t ask questions — just look into my eyes and stare at my soul. And this smile that wouldn’t give.

    kai, sabi nila there always is that one special person na ganun, para sa bawat isa. Ang mahiwagang tanong eh kung kelan sya darating. Ewan ko ba, baka yung akin andito na. ;)

    yoru, I guess these are the crazy things brought by this crazy-little-thing-called-love.

  6. Share ko lang tong lines na naalala ko while reading your post:

    It’s amazing
    How you can speak
    Right to my heart
    Without saying a word,
    You can light up the dark
    Try as I may
    I could never explain
    What I hear when
    You don’t say a thing

    Yihee! (As if alam ko talaga ang nangyayari, no? :p)

  7. back when i was still in elementary… i read that God supposedly holds us in His hands, because it’s the most sensitive part of the body… ergo, implying that He holds us there so that He can immediate sense/feel what we need/want/long for…

    And so I told myself… i’d only hold hands with people I really love…

    to the point that i won’t mind kissing a stranger in a casual encounter, as long as he won’t get to hold my hands…

    touching me where am most sensitive was a privilege i gave only to really few people… the few ones i really, really cared about…

    weird, irrational, true…
