I have had a strong interest in the topic of love for the past ten years. A quiet interest, that I mainly keep to myself, but an interest none the less. And what I have come to learn is that each person is a unique individual. Every single person that reads this is a completely unique individual. But every person is looking for love, in some form, each of you are looking for love whether it be for a job, a pet, a chair, a person, or a fictional reality. And once love as been found it wants to be experienced. Love only cares about now. Can I smell it, taste it, touch it, see it, hear it, now. If not, you feel incomplete. If not, you are miserable. If you do not feel incomplete. If you do not feel miserable. You are not in love. You haven't found it yet. If you do feel this way. Take hold of it and don't let it leave your side.

First Date

I don't usually kiss on the first date.
I have never kissed a girl on the first date, until today.

I dropped you off, slightly down the street from where you live.
You looked very beautiful, my hands were clammy.
I was nervous because I knew what I wanted to do, but I didn't know if I would do it.
We talked first, about whatever, family, who cares.
I was preoccupied.

Eventually the conversation, it came to a pause.
It was that pause that said-- it's now or never.
I unbuckled.
I leaned over for a hug.
I think it was our first hug, but I wasn't thinking about the hug, who cares.
I looked at you then and just did it.

It felt really right, and it ended way too quickly, almost before it started.
There was one beat, between that and you being gone for the evening.
But during that beat, it was the happiest you looked all day.
It was mutual, but who cares.

An ode to Facebook

Look at all of the places I have been.
Look at all of the people I've met.
Look at all of the things that I enjoy.
Look at me.
Without you.

Look at all of the songs we listen to.
Look at all of the accomplishments we share.
Look at all of the words we say (and don't say) to each other.
Look at me.
With you.

Look at all of the hobbies I now have.
Look at all of the parties I am invited to. 
Look at all of the ways I've grown.

Look at me.
After you.

And we dance

A beautiful girl who I just met starts to dance with me.
She smiles and I don't understand.
Does she like me, does she think I am funny?
But she smiles
and we dance

I sit back down
talk to friends
grab a drink
and she's there
so I walk up,
"what are you getting?"
"who knows?"
We cheers, and chug
and we dance

My back is tapped
conversations with friends
we part and I look back
she's looking back
conversations end
and we dance

All night
I think
All night
I wonder
and we dance

I have to go
I try to leave
I say goodbye
She says, "don't go"
and we dance

Sad Song

Put on a sad song.
And brush your fingers through my hair.
Remove those vintage khakis and lilac dress.
Embrace the humidity in the air, take a long breath in.
Kiss my neck.
A cool breeze rushes thru.
on a summer afternoon

Put on a sad song.
And your black, blue, geen eyeliner starts to run.
A rose from three months ago - and a day- still lays on your desk.
You smile when you look up and don't recognize your own room.
Your own reflection.
A new you has awoken.
on a summer afternoon

Put on a sad song.
And sit on a large rock by the water.
Waves hit the shore.
Gently, slowly, almost hypnotically.

A frog appears on your lap. Looks up at you. And hops off.

A couple drops of water reach you now and then.
One falls about an inch below your eye.
Your shortest relationship ever.
on a summer afternoon.

Where is all of the snow?
Rainy Christmas?

I am not complaining- It is less cold this way.

Anyway, hope everybody has had a wonderful holiday. Mine is going well, though I just got sick...

On Christmas eve me and my friend Erin decided to go for a drive and see if anything was open. Naturally we drove over to Bathurst-- the Jewish part of the city. To our surprise there wasn't a single thing open, not a Starbucks, nothing. At least Tim Horton's is always open...

Long Time No Blog

Chanukah is over, but my two week break from school has just begun fortunately.

On the third night of Chanukah I had some close friends over and I make some Turkey, Challah, and Latkes. We played Rummicub and make a makeshift Menorah our of tea lights. It was quite delightful.

On the last night of Chanukah, the night I arrived home to Toronto, I was given some gelt (chocolate money) from my mother. A couple pieces ended up in my back pocket with my house keys.. here is what happened...

Moral of the story-- Chocolate Melts-- Who would have thunk it...

A couple of nights ago I saw Avatar. It was a quality movie-- quite sad actually. The 3D was tres cool- there were quite a few WOW moments. I won't give away too much, but I have to say that glowing tree branches are sweet!!

Being home is nice, I have gotten all caught up on the Family gossip-- some juicy pieces this time. What is not nice is the temperature of my house- tres tres froid.

I can't wait to see what this break has in store-- stay tuned to find out :-)
