The mystery of our love

I believe some things in life are meant to exist without explanation; they just sort of happen, like the day you came into my life, we could not have been more opposite, you were the peaches, I was the out of date cream. You saw through all my flaws and became the smoothness to my sandpaper finish. For reasons far beyond my understanding, I am happy that our love is inexplicable.

let what simply "is" just be. No explanations needed. Well penned Dan.

Divine poetry. True love is ineffable!
Reviewed by Jon Willey 9/11/2011
Dan, emotions are definitely psycho-sensual events -- so accompanying verbiage does not always exist to explain their broad spectrum -- you said that beautifully in a few perfectly chosen words -- I bid you love and peace my dear friend -- Jon Michael

Dan, you pack a lot of life into these few words.
Inexplicable? Raw talent. -gene.

Yes, those are the loves that are the truest and deepest. Lovely.

Some things require no explanation and just are. Such rarity adds to the beauty. Patrick

Nicely done, Dan. I agree that some things just need to be accepted; an explanation just might ruin things. Nice metaphors too. Love and peace to you,

Reviewed by Kate Burnside 9/8/2011
Love is indeed perhaps the greatest mystery of all, Dan, and I'm glad that it has revealed its secrets to you whilst retaining, but of course, its fundamental unexplained je ne sais quoi. May that magic last forever! :)) xx

This is so beautiful, Dan....such depth to so few words! Well done!

"...they just sort of happen..."
absolutely, Dan!
and the wise, and you are a wise man,
don't have to analyse and evaluate
every twist and turn and in doing so
kill the joy.
And that final line is perfect.

Perfect just perfect.

Newfie hugs, Rose

Great word, D L, and every time I see it I think of Sylvester the Cat trying to say it.

This was a sweet piece of writing.

Dan, this is perfect!

Dan, I think this defines a lot of relationships that I've seen over the years..... Short & Sweet. Like it lots.....

oh, by the way, I'm "....out of date cream..." too. Thanks Dick
Reviewed by richard cederberg 9/5/2011
Love the strength of it and also - one of its synonyms - incomprehensible holds intrigue for me too. It's a fine word, Dan, to describe the mysteries of love. Enjoyed ... richard
