What We Talk About When We Talk About Love.

What we talk about when we talk about love - Raymond Carver.jpg
What We Talk About When We Talk About Love by Raymond Carver. He was one of the many contemporary short story writers. Writing about love ain’t easy. It is complex. Yet, Carver did it. In his own way. What do we really know about love anyway ?
“I could hear my heart beating. I could hear everyone’s heart.
I could hear the human noise we sat there making.
Not one of us moved. Not even when the room went dark.”
—  Raymond Carver
The end of the short story is full of meaning. It fills me with this inevitable feeling of warmth, love and sadness, all at once. That’s why it is one of my favorite endings.
