Emotional Anchor

Tuesday, May 19, 2009

Often overwhelmed with frustration at the the elaborate futility of her life, she gains strength from his rocklike solidity. The feeling of hopelessness around her, she loses it only in his presence. He is her emotional anchor, her sanctuary. He gave her a sense of permanence and lifelong commitment. Enveloped in his love, her troubles cease to exist.

The more she knows him, the more she learns about herself. In his gentle, self-deprecating way, he made her realize that the conventional expressions of romance-–love expressed as clich├ęs, flimsy and predictable, sweet yet inane-–are less essential than its simple and more practical expressions - a lingering look, comforting gestures that are felt from miles away, actions that are more eloquent than what any language can convey.
