Define this

Well, well, Happy St. Valentines Day everyone. In the spirit of the day I'm going to tell you about a little book I've found.

The lovers Dictionary by David Levithan charts the course of a relationship through a series of definitions. I was trying to stop my book fetish by not going onto Amazon, but some causes are lost before they have even begun, and what did I do but click.  The rest, as they say, is history.

I can see it being the kind of book that you would pick up at odd moments during the day, read a few lines, and put down again. They are the kinds of moments that we have known or wish to have known. The good we desire, the bad we hope never to know or know again.

indelible, adj.
That first night, you took your finger and pointed to the top of my head, then traced a line between my eyes, down my nose, over my lips, down my neck, to the center of my chest. It was so surprising, I knew I would never mimic it. That one gesture would be yours forever.

basis, n
There has to be a moment at the beginning when you wonder whether you’re in love with the person or in love with the feeling of love itself. If the moment doesn’t pass, that’s it—you’re done. And if the moment does pass, it never goes that far. It stands in the distance, ready for whenever you want it back. Sometimes it’s even there when you thought you were searching for something else, like an escape route, or your lover’s face. 

ineffable, adj.
These words will ultimately end up being the barest of reflections, devoid of the sensations words cannot convey. Trying to write about love is ultimately like trying to have a dictionary represent life. No matter how many words there are, there will never be enough.
 Romance; with a touch of humour and a sprinkle of heartbreak.
