When I saw this scene unfolding, from the rooftop of the snack bar at Nathan Phillips Square (Toronto City Hall), I have to admit it made my heart ache a little. For the past four years I’ve been alone and frankly gotten pretty used to it. I have not experienced a new relationship for well over ten years, to be honest. I think you can unlearn things, given enough time away from them. You can get to a point where you realize one day, I don’t know how to do that anymore. And although the idea seems entirely appealing from a distance, in actuality you grow afraid of it, of failure. Worse yet, is having no one to discuss it with. You work. You socialize. You take care of your responsibilities. And you learn how to keep the emptiness at bay, in the shadows. You become comfortable not taking chances. What’s the point, you figure. Years go by and by some more and one day you wake up and realize you’ve expelled the entire experience of love from your heart. But in actuality, you don’t realize this. It just happens and you are unaware of it. It’s only when someone does come along that you are suddenly made aware of just how fucked up you are. It looks so easy in the movies. I suppose everything does, right? Here in the real world, though, it’s much more difficult. When I look at this photo I wonder what it must be like to love someone and be loved back.
