The Trance of Love

By Millicent Sykes

… it’s not real, first off.

Attachment styles is very essential, especially when you are not secure in yourself.

“Wake the fuck up”

Do you actually know what it means be to be lover….

not just of life… not just knowledge..

but to tremendously know what it means to love essence.. even when you want it to stop

like a song that soothes all the angst and brings me back to myself

activating the memory of a moment when time seemed to stop and the noise was cancelled… like the kiss shared in the middle of a club, where my knees grew weak and I forgot about my safety, my passport, and my friend

The world stopped existing and I did not even know I was alive

Redefining what love actually means

So is it about what the other person does? Of course

Is it about how we feel in their presence? Yes and no

Does how we feel about ourselves matter? Most definitely

So what is it? And how do we know if we are in a trance?

Ask an athlete or musician how it feels to be in a flow state and you will be closer to discovering the answer….

Like how sex can be, it’s shared in the moment

Like atoms vibrating in space and time

The depth of the love depends on the participants

The chemistry of past lovers, past ideas of connection, and the urge for intimacy

Sometimes disconnected… depends on the states

Depends on the nature of the relationship and what the people need in that moment

Not always about romantic love

What do we call it when this new love transcends the previously deemed spiritual love

Universal love, true love

Ok, how is it measured? How do we know if it’s real…

Imagine it to be true

Apparently the universe shows you what you believe to be true

It’s backed by prejudice, science, and preconceived notions

What does this look like when a person is free from biases and has clear mind?

The world becomes like that of a movie, beautiful in every expression

Emotions then are felt more deeply and often
