the man


note: this is a warning..highly mushy stuff ahead,be ready to slip and lose your heart...

What do you search for in your life partner? the elusive “x” factor making him different from all the other men in your  life….I don’t know about people in general…but I can try to put into words what I feel I search for as I my eyes wander towards the horizon searching for prince charming to appear on his noble horse!

The concept of prince charming…tall, dark, handsome.well...tall is appealing and dark is mysterious….handsome doesn’t matter at all….there is something about life which makes it perfect…the thing is imperfection. When you look at someone and see their imperfection and realize that you love that person just the same or maybe more for it...that's when u realize the extent of your love for yourself, that’s when you are able to forgive yourself, the world and every small and big things wrong in your life and are able to move on, its through these imperfections in yourself and others that you glimpse the perfection of life.so..Physical perfection isn’t too big a deal; character perfection is what it is all about.

He should be rich in the simple treasures of life….integrated in his work. And find satisfaction in it….he should have the ability to see the simple humor  hidden in every aspect of life as it unfolds. A heart full of love…love that can cherish, sustain, heal and soften the blows which at times are a formality of life.

He should be the one invoking the primitive passion in you during long nights and thunderstorms…the tenderness in you as he wanders stumbles and then straightens as he tries to find his path through life….the peace in you as you share a drink during the warm October evenings on the swing on your porch….

He should d music to which your soul is tuned to, as you travel on the road of your destiny…you should be stamped on to each others mind, body and soul in such a way that when during d fall of your lives when you look at each other you see the maps and directions of a life well lived and cherished……

His should be the face which makes you realize that even if life isn’t as you expect it to be; everything is and will be alright in your world because he is with you.

I guess, I always try to find answers and learn my lessons from what is offered to me for free…nature…it offers you her(I can bet on my soul that nature is a “she”) essence for free. It’s just us humans, who always put a worth on our souls and thus take away from it its pricelessness...
And what she has taught me in this matter is this…..

The perseverance of the earth
The vastness and stability of the sky
The adaptability of water
The energy and vibrancy of fire
The spirit of wind.

Well. give me a guy like this…in whose arms as I fall asleep every night treasured and known…. feeling safe…that even if I don’t wake up again there was some one with whom I entrusted my legacy. Someone who knew me and my essence and loved me nonetheless (see…its the human thing of looking for his worth is someone else’s eye),some one through whom I live on and that I sleep in the arms of my destiny and always wake up in heaven. (Either ways..dead or alive)

signing off.

*Wipes of all the mush from his screen before he starts typing*
The way you were describing "the man" I thought you were gonna conclude by saying I have found him ;)

I like the notion of how physical imperfections don't matter. (Gives me some hope in life ;))

And what's happening? You and Shanu have come out of your blogging slumbers. Makes me wanna write something too!!

This reminds me of a poem that i'd written along the same lines back in ninth grade- absolutely hair-curlingly embarassing stuff! You vent your thoughts much better than I do! :)

Love how idealistic you are about 'The Man', and yet realistic with the imperfections part! :)
