The elasticity of love

Birkarnelzelzit Thiyam
For where there is unconditional love for someone, the colour of love changes from red to white. The colour red usually expresses passion, heat and courage. It’s a strong colour, deep in hue and stands out. But when we colour code love it’s a bit of pink which expresses likeness towards a person, a kind of blush which brings a smile to faces of those who find solace in each other. It also represents purity of thought towards each other and an unsaid promise which is kept secret in between the eyes.
Love is also orange–which is for planning. When you like someone so much, expressing those feelings and trying to gather attention of the one you like without being noticed by the world you have to strategize and plan accordingly. When you go deeper, love is a bit of blue-it brings calmness to the heart, when you spend time with the person you love the most even just two minutes-it brings you the stillness required at the end of an overwhelming day.
Peaceful conversations are soothing and allay all anxieties and fears. A hand kept on another to say I am there with you no matter where you go, I am your shadow in good and bad, I am your companion and a pillar on whom you can lean when you feel tired running. It’s also a bit of yellow-which is vibrancy and cheerfulness. When two partners have their own language, their own jokes and an ability of humour over situations and reactions, that’s when you add a pinch of yellow. This yellow is a binder of all colours. The palette is incomplete without a streak of humour and laughter. Many couples stop laughing over and with each other in due course of time-the solution probably is to find those jokes and have the ability to make fun of yourselves if you can’t find someone else. It’s a bit of brown also-for integrity and loyalty.
When you love someone, there are times when you can fall out of love also, but it is a fact that if there is no guarantee that you wouldn’t find a better person in your lifetime better than this one or you might too. But loyalty speaks a lot about the integrity of the person you are with. It is easy to initiate and start relationships but difficult to maintain them because as you start living with someone full time, you realise there are ugly and dirty parts too, which you never thought of because we are colour blind to some colours.
Love is black which is dark, there are times when you understand that we get hurt the most by people whom we love the most. So, to realise the fact that pains are deepest not from the stabs of strangers but by the pricks whom we love so much. Love is green too- people who are in love should never get jealous of each other.
Love is a constructive force which should empower individuals. Love is a deep wine colour which depicts anger, you get angry with people with whom either you are very comfortable or utterly uncomfortable. When someone you love a lot gets angry with you, they are trying to seek your attention and that’s the highest level of threshold. Anger is the borderline where love at its full extreme starts and points in the direction of possession.
Love is a spectrum of all colours intermingled in each other. It’s a myriad of shades that depict a complete relationship. If you have someone who is close to you, paint your life with a bit of all colours and complete each other. Being lucky is not finding a specific good person for yourself but maintaining the standards of a healthy relationship for each other. Choose your colours and stay happy !
