THE GHOSTS OF LOVERS PAST

We all have a ghost, or more, tucked under the pillows of our chest. A dark romance which dissipated and took the shape of dust and choked us with remorse. A runaway bride in the shadows of the night. The flaming face of jealousy. The rotten nerve of scandal. L’innocence perdue. They awaken at Christmas, in a whirlwind of sensations and emotions, like a hurricane that reverberates through the heart and the mind in one base root note and vibration: “If we do not have peace then we have forgotten we belong to each other“.

you are all the fantasies in me

the unattainable

the love that never grows old. ”

First love never die

My first love was a boy from school. Very original, no? We ended up together in a time and age where people didn’t tweet, reblog, like or comment, but wasted their nights on mIRC, had drinks in a bar built around a very old tree in our very own Central Park here in Cismigiu and exchanged real love notes instead of tumbling them in helvetica neue.

Gossip would get born in custom journals held by every group of girls during class, home phones were still better than no phones and fashion consciousness was emergent, yet timid. A dress from ZARA was pretty much luxury and wearing it easily turned you in the badass bitch with a large spending fund sense of style.

I held a special place inside  for all these sun drenched, orange tinted, radio orchestrated, snow coated images of teenage years. They may have attached to my heart or might have gone deeper and mixed in my structure, in my fiber, like stardust. They are spellbound, like childhood, like the first time you get up and walk, like the smell of old photos in a chinese tea box, like the drive behind getting the first boy you like to fancy you back, like the forgotten taste of almond candy from a crystal jar.

My memories are like a bunch of flowers plucked from an open field. The grace of cornflower pastels, with the feist of poppies and the faded grain – they speak simplicity in consistence.

 Love for the simple things in life is something I had to remember after my brain decided to take a break from my everyday life. Summertime, sand, holiday romance, basic fabrics, the feel of lightweight cotton on skin after a day at the beach, the smell of daisies running down my throat, they were there, at the end of a barely secluded beach, where my thoughts came back to where they belonged.

We all own our private  moments, scents, faces, places, particles in black and white or explosions in technicolor (should probably have used hipstamatic but I’m still a classic girl). We carry them in mental agendas in the shape of smiles, unfolding arms, dresses, trains, socks, stones, swings and grass, a tender collection of what we are that reverberates even miles away from home, when you put on a hat and a plain t shirt that embraces your style and your peace of mind.

Castele de carton

A văzut cineva în realitate acele cupluri de modele pe care unii şi, îndeosebi, unele dintre noi le admiră în pictoriale glossy înfăţişând viaţa cuplului modern, hip, perfect? Revistele de modă ne alimentează visul perechii strălucite şi strălucitoare. Şi credem cu sinceritate în acest mit, după care alergăm aproape toată tinereţea. Apoi intrăm în panică şi nu înţelegem ce ni se întâmplă. Complexul Hollywood şi complexul eroului pe cal alb, variantele upgradate.

Vrem să fim acei oameni, dar nu ne întrebăm niciodată câţi asemenea am văzut în jurul nostru. Câte cupluri cu un coeficient egal distribuit de frumuseţe şi inteligenţă maximă aţi întâlnit? Multe? Că eu nu prea… De regulă, ea e mai interesantă sau el mai atrăgător. Dacă amândoi se află în acelaşi punct, nu va funcţiona. Priviţi modelele şi starurile rock. Sau actorii şi cântăreţele. Sau orice altă combinaţie de aparent succes.

Majoritatea au sfârşit la tribunal. Câţiva s-au sinucis sau şi-au înjunghiat jumătatea. E extrem de dificial să-ţi păstrezi independenţa şi individualitatea într-un cuplu în care grija permanentă pare a fi apropierea de celălalt prin creşterea standardului frumuseţii personale. Cred că e realist să afirmăm că perechile cu adevărat reuşite pe care le-am întâlnit se compuneau dintr-o ea scundă, supraponderală sau cu un fizic banal şi un el atletic, suplu, cu alură de manechin sau dintr-un el şarmant mai curând prin personalitate decât prin fizic şi o ea foarte frumoasă, elegantă şi rafinată, cu un trup şi o postură de muză.

E un fel de lege universală, cred. Dacă amândoi sunt sclipitori, gelozia, teama, co-dependenţa îşi fac loc încetul cu încetul în dormitor. Într-un final, o relaţie fericită nu presupune vestimentaţie de înaltă clasă şi amprenta unui stil venerabil. Singura clasă pe care trebuie să o absolvim este cea a înţelepciunii, pentru inimă, iar singurul stil pe care ar trebui să-l stăpânim este cel de a iubi.
