“We think about it, joke about it, but sadly…seldom talk about it”!
As those ‘moments of passion’ passed, the shared silence following the sensual storm was suddenly broken by his chuckle…
She wondered where that came from! He looked at her and smiled. She gave her a surprised look. He imitated the look. She chuckled. He held her hand. She caressed his face. He shared what he suddenly got reminded of and made him chuckle. She listened to it intently. She also chuckled…
And in the wee hours, they simply talked – without topic…without opinions…without discussion.
Now, before you declare me frivolous, perverted or voyeuristic, let me come to my point…
When it comes to a couple, what characterizes or strengthens their relationship is not all that they do for those ‘moments of passion’ or during them. It is about what they do after those moments have passed. Yes! What couples don’t realize is that ‘the moments that come after they are done with chasing the hormonal-high’ offer the true opportunity for real togetherness – the one beyond physicality.
And that’s what defines ‘the future’ of ‘the love’ in ‘the relationship’.
Well! You must be wondering who these ‘he’ and ‘she’ are, and how do I know them?
But you know what! It hardly matters who they are, because in any case, in those gentle moments of togetherness, they themselves lose their identities…and validate the proverbial ‘two becoming one’. 🙂
