Fumbling heart on the highway

IT is just natural to fall in love with the other heart. At this point, you are likely to want to do anything for love. It may also get you into trouble or be a source of disappointment. When you fall, the process you make use of depends on your goals, lifestyle and more. That perhaps could be the reason why it is mysterious for many.

Emotional ‘ fallacies’ make our world go round and we usually cannot comprehend how it all started, where we are heading to or why it packed up earlier than expected. At the outset, love comes with excitement.

Tasty, if it is true. Salty, if it’s tilted in one direction, and polluted, if there is a third heart working so hard to knock off one of the hearts. For the first eight years of the relationship, Tony and Clara had a wonderful time together. Then he got promoted at work and had to travel for about two years. Sadly, they had never been separated since they got married and it just had to happen. Devoted Tony was in touch on phone and he also shared information with her via email.

For the first six months, Clara tried to adjust and then she fell ill. The family doctor was helpful and she also talked him about the lonely moments. He tried to fill in the gaps and in a short while this emotional handshake went past the elbow. Now, it was time for Tony to return but Clara and the family doctor were cruising on a 140 kilometre-per-hour emotional highway. In less than three months, their truck hit Tony’s car (heart) and it was time for Clara to make a confession. No man likes to hear tales about his wife messing around.

Instead of having a smooth ride, there was anger, bitterness and confusion which subsequently caused an emotional traffic. At the end of the emotional imbroglio, Tony crushed these hearts and his heart was equally destroyed in the process.

It’s fun to taste and drink from this stream or river as the case may be. However, when you take too much from love or drink from the wrong stream then you may just have a disaster in your hands. So, how can you stay safe? Perhaps, it’s better to adhere to the popular rule: ‘If you drink, please don’t drive’. The same should apply to the emotional highway – if you are in love, please don’t drive.

Doing this may just endanger the lives of fellow motorists (lovebirds), pedestrians (not qualified), motorcyclists (who have been banned from the arena) and cyclists (those who would never come this way).

A person who is drunk is affected by alcohol (love) to the extent of losing control of his or her faculties. A fallen emotional hero here may need to hold onto the wall, a door or a tree to keep him or her from tripping over. When you are intoxicated with love, then it would make you do things that you won’t do ordinarily. At that point, those who know the principles that you cherish would certainly wonder what happened.

Getting drunk depicts that a number of lovebirds are emotional casualties. We go into the arena with a clear head but gradually begin to lose our head and brain once cupid’s arrow passes through. Poisonous or not , you cease to be your original self, craving and crying for love, asking for more like Oliver Twist and getting so little in return.

You can’t think properly, you can’t walk properly or drive properly.

A collision is imminent and if it is a mild crash, then nobody is going to really notice. What you run into also matters and if you are in control of your emotional wheels, then you are likely to manoeuvre and survive. If you don’t then you may be stuck in a bizarre accident with fatal injuries or death.

A fumbling heart on the highway is a bleeding heart. Even if it survives, the scars would always be there to remind you of the error(s) committed in a drunken state. Sadly, it is a temporary state and when your head clears gradually, you can be sure that the damage is already done. The gender of the person who is drunk matters. If it is the man who is drunk, it can be excused.

Here it is the familiar it’s-a- man’s-world or men-can-do-it. Alternatively, she could also be blamed for leaving emotional loopholes, gaps that made him stray in the first place. But if the person who has taken in too much alcohol (love) is a woman, then the story would be different. The emotional pendulum can be unfair and you just have to adjust to be in control.
