Love: An Allegory

TaJuan is an aspiring writer hoping to gain experience and growth through publishing passionate works, like this one, online for the world.

Falling in love for the first time is a lot like learning how to fly

The first time you jump

When your feet cease to call the ground their home

It's exhilarating

All worries below you

Time moving at whatever speed you like

Dancing along with the wind and the trees

A waltz you’ll never forget

Birds look on

Not with confusion

But with happiness

For they know the sensations all too well

And they are thrilled you have unlocked them for yourself

You notice how blue the sky truly is

So vast and ever present

How the clouds truly feel

Almost exactly how you had dreamed they would

But now you’re up and awake

This is reality

This is truth

This is love


Gravity begins to regain control

Rapidly you fall towards the ground

Gone are the feelings of exhilaration

As sorrow takes its place

This is no longer love

This is heartbreak

And as you lay there

In pain

With contempt of the birds that fly by

You wonder if you’ll ever fly again

And if you would even want to

But you will

I don’t know when

But trust me

You will.
