KNIGHT OF CUPS OVERVIEW
Poem? Check. Wine? Check. Strawberries? Check. He wants this to be perfect. It’s not every day that you declare your undying love to someone. He knows that he loves this idea. This picnic. This setting. This beautiful thing of falling in love. And oh boy is he falling! He’s head over heels, and so excited about the future. He feels a little nervous, but in his heart he knows that she will love this gesture. Part of him worries, however, that she may think it’s too soon for this sort of getaway invitation, and for this sort of commitment. He knows that he has given his heart away too quickly in the past, and that people have seen him as too needy or emotionally starved. ‘None of which are true, of course.’ he reminds himself chuckling, and shaking his head, ‘I am like this with all kinds of love, not just ones that involve people. I feel this passion deeply for my ideas, my desires and my dreams.’ He knows that he simply does what he feels without the restraints that society would have him hold over himself, and today, on this perfectly romantic afternoon, he feels love.
