Two Reasons, One Way

ImageWICKER PARK (2004).

Hearing the title, I thought it was a suspense and that’s when my brother told me that it was really a love story.

Story about little obsessions which turns into bigger  and complicated things; sometimes good and most of the time bad. A lil bit like love; most of the time good but sometimes bad.

Love is what drives this movie. Love is what drives Daniel (Christoper Cousins) to stalk Lisa (Diane Kruger). Love is what drives Alex (Rose Byrne) to do the things she had done to make Matthew (Josh Hartnett) and Lisa apart. Love is what drives Matthew to continuously search for Lisa. Love is what drives Lisa to believe in Matthew. The story also revolves around destiny. Whatever others do, whatever happens, destiny definitely knows its way.

But destiny alone will not work, it needs love and act. Matthew and Lisa found each other because destiny leads them to one another regardless of who or what stop them, no matter how much one doesn’t want them to.

Because I think, there are just two reasons for that; it is love, the other is destiny.

It’s Been Too Long

Home is where he belongs

THEY DON’T know each other. They don’t know if they’ve met. They do know nothing at all.

But that day when he was walking, his mind was busy on something not known, he saw her. She’s in red but he didn’t see her face and he doesn’t even mind looking at her. Then his friends say she’s weird because she wasn’t looking, but staring at them… at him. He then regret not looking at her face, maybe he knew her, maybe they know each other but just maybe.

When their paths have crossed again his friends pointed her and said it was her, the woman in red who was staring at him. The moment he look at her, tears started to fall down his cheek.

She saw when the tears run down his face. Her eyes were also clouded with tears but she had learned to manage them not to escape from her eyes. She thought, he recognized me even if he didn’t see me for a long time.

He wipe his tears, knot was formed on his forehead, I knew her but I don’t know her and I don’t even know why there is something about her that made my eyes shed tears.

She then smiled at him.

Hey! He knew that smile. He knew her! It was her, really her.

She open her arms and welcome him. He hugged her, hugged her tightly.

She was his mother. He was her son. His mother whom he didn’t see for a long time, his mother who had promised to come back and now there she is.

“It’s been too long, now he wanna come home”, home where he can feel again the touch of his mother, the love of his mother. It’s been too long…
