Screen Words 5: Strangers Again.

Monday, May 16, 2011

As most of you already know, this video amassed millions of views on YOUTUBE within a week of it's creation and it's easy to see why. Anyone who has been in a relationship can relate to it.
Watching it, I could see at least a million weepy teens rewatching it 30 times and crying, thinking they can die of heart break (Not brilliant but we have all been there).



Which is why though I find it well composed, it somehow didn't really pull any chords with Me who has been there, done that, went back, did it again, again, again, again...

Till this part that is.

[11min20sec]

" Our lives will continue on in different directions toward the inevitable end, becoming strangers again. And everything we shared will just become fragmented memories, from so long ago I'll question if it really happened.  And all that will be left is this, a box of random stuff from a faded period of time when this stranger, was the most important person in my life."

I can't count on my fingers the 'most important' people who used to be in my life that would take my longer than I'd like to admit to name. I've loved some of the things they did and hated others, but ultimately you can't love or hate someone you don't know anymore. They just are and what you had just was.

As jaded and depressing as it sounds, the upside is that there are plenty more strangers on the sidewalk,
almost as many as there are fishes in the sea.
And all you have to do is take a walk or go for a swim :)

  1. i remember an "old dog" making a comment about how god just loves to test the endurance of 2 people together by inventing this thing called marriage. i've seen a lot crash but i also see a lot who thrive & survive. it's so fascinating to watch. i will always wonder "in a world of 6 billion people, how come i'm still searching for my perfect match?" thx for sharing, brie ;)
