I could not not write something tonight.
It is Valentine's Day...exactly one year since I started blogging.
Cancer was my Valentine then.
Like all my relationships, my affair with Ca knew soaring highs and dumping lows.
Like all my relationships, I lived it fully, often burning myself with the intensity of the emotions it brought me.
Like all my relationships, I remember it with a mixture of strange fondness and acute irritation.
Like all my relationships, I have archived, boxed and stored it in my very soul.
Like all my relationships, I have, by my Allah's Leave, been set free.
This year, my Valentine is a heart that is ready to take a chance...take a chance at life, if not love.
No chocolate, no flowers, none of the cliche of love.
This V day, we simply dared. We chose a date. Let's take that chance my love, for life's sake...
