RomanceKeep in mind the gestalt of romance has very little to do with loving someone, and even less to do with acts of tenderness. It’s not a love story, nor an overcomplicated soap opera of whom-got-with-whom.
A good romance is defined by a passionate desire. A want of something so near, but unattainable. It’s longing of the future or of the past and the possibilities that could never be. It’s the futility and foolishness of making oneself vulnerable, no matter what disasters may occur.
A good romance rarely ends happily, and if it grips you it has the power to melt and break your heart in the same breath.
It’s committing suicide in order to remember what it was like to live.
