“If music be the food of love,
Play on, give me excess of it;
That surfteing, the apetite may sicken, and so die”
The famous Shakespeare phrase replayed at the back of her mind as she drove from her workplace. Love is one word, when uttered, makes one mushy and warm inside. And when one is in love, the glow is evident. The smile, the speech, the touch… everything.
Celine Dion and Aaliyah love songs on her playlist as she drove to her “First Date”. Of course, music is the food of love. She played on and on. What better way to feed the soul? What better time to finally meet the one she loved, for they had met on the internet. She had waited for more than a year for their first date.
Love knows no bounds, it breaks and tears down walls. Love is patient, a year felt like yesterday,
Well, ecstatic she was and couldn’t hide the feeling as she drove westwards. She sang along to her playlist, put on a happy face that got other motorists staring as they drove past. Towards the end of the city,was a kopje where they were to meet and watch the sunset together.
Love, yes, it renergises and takes one to another realm. She got there five minutes early and found standing near the jacaranda tree a tall,light skinned and well sculptured male of the human species. Not a member of Beard gang nor Fitness Twitter, he was just fine..
Eyes did the talking, not a word uttered by the mouth. All the rehersals of “What-do-l-do-when l-finally-meet-him?” disappeared from her thoughts as she stood in awe.
“You can say you love me
That I’m your perfect crush
How it hurts,to need someone that much
You can swear you mean it
But that ain’t good enough
Cause when a man loves a woman, its is all
In his TOUCH…”
The Celine Dion song played as he put his arm around her in an embrace, that touch said it all.
