There's a difference between a once in a lifetime love and the love of your life.
The slow seduction is a lost art, but one night in the spring two would-be lovers embarked on a silent journey to the shores of passion.
A secret meeting out in public leads us down a dark path to challenge fate, or redefine it.
We all remember the first time our hearts are broken after having fallen in love.
Have you ever lost yourself in the moment of pleasure that focused on foreplay, and foreplay alone?
Do you remember the moment you said goodbye to the love of your life?
Have you ever changed your habits and routine just to be close to someone?
What will you reflect on about lost love in your final breath? Live your life for love, or die for it, but don't leave anything unspoken.
Do you remember the first conversation you had with the love of your life?
Do you remember the first time you saw someone who stole your thoughts and captured your heart?
For some, love is like time. The present becomes the past in the blink of an eye. The conundrum is when we stare into our future with uncertainty and reach for what was lost, in lieu of leaving it where it belongs.
We lie to ourselves and we lie to each other. This leads to secrets that torture our hearts and ruin our relationships.
Live life on your terms! No one will ever reflect on what you did and didn't do when they are on their deathbed. And so you must live your life for you because it's the things you don't do that you truly do regret.

We walk the path we choose, yet destiny always finds a way to lead us to where we belong.
Stories keep us company when the world abandons us, and words are like whispers between souls.
Sometimes we lose ourselves in a story to find the memories of what never truly happened in order to have peace.
It is only when love is lost to the finality of death that we regret all the things we should have said, but didn't speak.
Reading transports us to another realm, but what happens when reading leads us to close the book and pursue a dream?
We lose ourselves in a parallel universe when we read. We fall in love. We chase dreams. We lose touch with reality, but what is real and what is not is merely a matter of perspective. After all, isn't everything perceived by the brain real?
It is different for everyone, yet it is the same.
In the tradition of sequels, a bloodstained love letter is stolen from police evidence. The legend of the labyrinth is considered a myth by some and a reality by others. The forbidden love leads our main characters down a dark path of secret passion and the perils of uncovering the truth.

Heartbreak teaches us how to love.
There's a difference between loving someone and being in love. Knowing the difference makes all the difference.
Love is the medium of the soul. Lust is the plane of the body.
We all remember love at first sight.
Akin to love not being the sun and the moon, but the dance between them.
Akin to a flower that is not plucked from the world.
