Excuse me for being a virgin, I'm sorry...


"What is a poet, but a troubled soul? What is a poem, but the spewings of lava from the orifice of a volcano?

An eruption so beautiful, yet so dreadful to witness.”


I wish I could forget how to be in love, because being in love is too memorable. It’s a pink post-it note on the fridge that catches my eye every time I walk by. Constantly invading my space one would think that it’s origins were in an Atari.

Being in love is like bungee jumping from the Brooklyn…

I’m not sure how you feel about me or if you dream about us in your spare time, but I do know how you feel about words. And I’m pretty sure our souls rhyme

What do you get when you combine Nicholas Sparks, Albert Camus and Obi-Wan Kenobi? You get the movie Perfect Sense. Perfect Sense stars Ewan Mcgregor (Our favorite Jedi) and the upcoming star Eva Green (Penny Dreadful, Chick from 300 x 2). Perfect Sense is a philoso-romance film, if those exists; it falls under the same category as To The Wonder/ Tree of Life etc. Movies that will strengthen your beliefs in the abstract wonders of the world.

Perfect Sense is a tale about two strangers who eventually become lovers due to an unforeseen circumstance. Before you start assuming you’ve seen this cliche film before, the scenario that they are stuck in is extremely unique. A virus has begun spreading across the world and the symptoms are the loss of your senses. As in no more smell, taste, hearing and sight. Each loss of symptom comes in a wave preceded by some other biochemical misfortune (anger, hunger, joy), but nonetheless once it’s gone it’s gone for good.It follows the lives of these two strangers who meet when smell is eradicated. McGregor plays Michael, a chef, who has a problem with sleeping in the same bed with a woman; Susan is an epidemiologist who is studying the disease. I personally loved Susan’s character for she is this brooding asshole alpha-female who deserves love, you want her to find love and change her view on life. The two begin to live normally as they would if their senses were still present. Of course true to every romance film, suffering and tragedy must take place before the moment of realization and love. 

Perfect Sense is a break from the cliche mold of romantic films out these days. It’s more of a horror film to me; instead of some disease that turns the dead into mindless cannibals (hello walking dead), it forces you to live and adjust your whole lifestyle. Imagine a world where you can’t taste your favorite food, smell the perfume left on the sheets of your bed, or even see the sun for that matter. I was terrified, praying that this would never happen in real life but who knows. 

What the movie’s central theme is based around is the concept of love. This isn’t the teenage love that we see on TV nowadays, this is the love that is super glue between two souls. It’s the unification of a human to something else, whether it’s another human or life itself. The term love is so misused and misunderstood in our generation that it can be applied to anything. However this film will open your eyes and force you to revamp your views on that four letter word. Love isn’t merely a connection or a feeling, it is a branch of existing. If this life has no meaning, if the world is truly a hollow place like these characters experience with their senses gone then love is what defines value. It places importance on experience. This is the theme that resonated with me the most after watching this film. That love is more than a feeling, it is an extension of life itself. Find that love and you will find a reason to live, even when all else around you has gone numb. 

It’s dark now. But they feel each others’ breath. And they know all they need to know. They kiss. And they feel each others’ tears on their cheeks. And if there had been anybody left to see them, then they would look like normal lovers, caressing each others’ faces, bodies close together, eyes closed, oblivious to the world around them. Because that is how life goes on. Like that.” - Narrator

This is not just a heart thing or emotion or thought. It’s the indescribable feeling of everything and nothing at once, the existence of something that can’t be touched, felt, heard or understood. It’s just present. It’s faith. It’s in God’s plan for me to be with you always. If I left you, I’d be leaving the most vital of my organs behind. My very soul sits with yours.

Her love was calligraphy
Strokes of beauty and order on my paper heart
Cherry blossom kisses
Revealed her divine intentions

There is nothing better in this world than a good book, hell even a bad book is better than nothing. Because according to some this life has no value, no meaning so you might as well pick up reading. For a book is a portal to a dimension that never was, these pages transport you to a place where…
