Naked On A Strange Planet

Sights, Sounds & Reflections on Life

A Face In The Crowd

2 Comments

There you are, walking down the street or standing amongst a group of strangers. Across the room, your eyes catch the eyes of another. Lightning strikes. You feel it, but you don’t understand what it means. You have just met your Soul Mate. Just a Face In The Crowd, but soon to become everything to you. Life can be so strange.

After many years together, one of you forgets that brief encounter. That life changing encounter. They begin to take you for granted. They no longer feel the sizzle of the lightning that brought you – strangers – into each others’ lives and hearts. That forever connected your Souls together. Now they need their space. They’ve suddenly realized how unhappy they’ve been all these years – an unhappiness you have not noticed. Now you are Separate. Two Soul Mates divided into two incomplete individuals. You realize that this has been slowly happening over the years – no wonder your “partner” feels unhappy. They have lost the connection that you still feel so deeply.

Where is the Fire that melded you together so completely? Where is the Love that bound you? Why were you so blind to the Coming Apart?

You see yourself in the Eyes of your Lover – you are once again, just a Face In The Crowd.

The Silence so Loud – It is Deafening.
