Screen Words - 2 Days In Paris.

Saturday, September 04, 2010

Watched the movie in 2007 and the lines still come to me on white walled mornings when I wonder what happened to everyone I loved yet let go.




"It always fascinated me how people go from loving you madly to nothing at all, nothing.

It hurts so much.

When I feel someone is going to leave me, I have a tendency to break up first before I get to hear the whole thing. Here it is.

One more, one less. Another wasted love story.
I really love this one.


When I think that its over, that I'll never see him again like this... well yes, I'll bump into him, we'll meet our new boyfriend and girlfriend, act as if we had never been together, then we'll slowly think of each other less and less until we forget each other completely.
Almost.


Always the same for me.

Break up,break down. Drunk up, fool around. Meet one guy, then another, fuck around. Forget the one and only. Then after a few months of total emptiness start again to look for true love, desperately look everywhere and after two years of loneliness meet a new love and swear it is the one, until that one is gone as well.

There's a moment in life where you can't recover any more from another break-up. And even if this person bugs you sixty percent of the time, well you still can't live without him.

And even if he wakes you up every day by sneezing right in your face, well you love his sneezes more than anyone else's kisses."
-Julie Delphy as Marion in 2 Days in Paris.


Through the bright flashing lights and dizzy dancing last night somebody asks me if I'm currently single. I said I just broke up from a 5 month long distance relationship. She sympathetically said,' Well, it's ok! You are the type who moves on really easily ya!'

I smiled.

Just because I keep myself moving, it does not make it easy.

I guess inflated emotional maturity has made me realistic in Love. There is no one you will die without. If you don't want to live without someone, that is your choice. I spend my days living, loving and laughing; Thats my choice instead. Another wasted love story is better than another wasted life. And a life full of love stories cannot be a waste, to me at least :)
