Love.

Have you ever loved someone so deeply that it hurts you? It made, or rather, makes you a better person but still, it consumes you. It’s like a leech feeding off your soul. Like a parasite. All you think about as you get by the day are your shared memories. Memories of all the conversations you’ve had. The tears and the joy shared. You know you’ve to let go and quit being there for everyone else. It’s time you started taking care of yourself. But, how do you do that? How do you let someone go? Especially when they are the reason you breathe easy. Cutting them off is like suffocating yourself with a cloth in the mouth. Mind you, there is already a dagger piercing the heart.

Cut me off. I quit. 

Blue Valentine.

It’s a love story, a very real and heartbreaking story. I’m not going to give away the plot, but it’s a very simple and possible story line.

I love how the movie unfolds and scenes alternates so quickly, juxtaposing then and now.

Plus, there’s gosling. Boy, I could look at him all day.

I find myself having so many emotions within a short span of time. One minute, I’m hating both characters and the next, I feel sorry for them all over again and have a lump in my throat. It gets pretty intense. I might need a while to get over this film. So, please excuse me.

“I didn’t want to be somebody’s husband and I didn’t want to be somebody’s dad, that wasn’t my goal in life. But somehow it was. I work so I can do that.”

Catch this if you haven’t already. You might love it as much as I do.
