Love, From A Distance – ONWUCHEKWA IKWECHUKWU DAVID

Virtual Love

They say love is amazing and conquers all, some even say love beats even the unbeatable and triumphs where mortal strength fails. Well, I would not blame all those who have this healthy idea of love, after all when compared to what some others face, they literally have smooth love lives. So here is my own idea of love from a really turbulent lane.

I guess the truest test of love would be distance, when I say distance, I do not mean some petty intercity or interstate distance, I mean distance that crosses international boundaries and goes beyond several borders. Writing based on experience, I would say talk is cheap and easy. It seems like a piece of cake to promise that distance will not be an issue and that love would prevail through it all but that is right until bae moves away and it dawns on you that it is going to be months before you can even set eyes on your loved one again. Things begin to get trying. You are able to hold it together for the first few weeks and probably even a month if you are the strong type but then *snap* it goes and something lets loose in your head. You begin to wonder “’Why the heck is he/she so far away?’ ‘Why am I killing myself over this person who is miles away?’

Usually at this stage, feelings of distrust begins to creep in arise and you gradually start questioning his/her credibility. You find ways to attack things done or undone and every flaw begins to count. Then comes the ‘CHANGE’ where there’s a transformation in character and how you relate with the boo and at this point you cannot exactly control what you do again because you are snapping or rather you have snapped. The boo is still trying to be reasonable and most times puts up a fight, trying to weather it all but sadly that lasts only for a while as characters get worse by the day.

It is easy to want to say ‘this is where understanding comes in’ or go ‘but you said you love each other? Let us however remind ourselves that we are all humans with thoughts, feelings and emotions. How do you expect a person to remain understanding if they do not have the slightest clue as to what is going on? How does Love prevail here when the partner clearly debunks all love claims? How can you change so much when you clearly know it is impossible to adequately understand the change?

You are at your wits end and resort to the last option available, walking away or should I say letting go? Back to where I began, love is truly amazing and conquers all but is love alone sufficient to overcome the test of distance?
