“Two plus two equals ten. Of course! We all know that.
Some information here, some from there, then a whole story derived from just a chat.
You love me; no, you hate me; or is it fear and not love at all?
It’s as plain as the nose on our face, isn’t it? Or are there some ‘facts’ we’re choosing not to recall? How can we be sure what is true or not? Are we ever sure of the ‘truth?’
In the meantime, I love you is the only moment we’ve got. Here and now, not back then or some future hence. Right now, I love you, even if it’s only mere coincidence.”
