no koi yokan

There’s a Japanese phrase that I like: koi no yokan. It doesn’t mean love at first sight. It’s closer to love at second sight. It’s the feeling when you meet someone that you’re going to fall in love with them. Maybe you don’t love them right away, but it’s inevitable that you will.

Grandpa always said
The best stories begin with
Hello


I always thought he was a crazy old man


But when the word slipped past her lips,
The vowels resonating in the space between us
Like the final note in a symphony


It settled around me like the aftermath of a thunderstorm –


The surreal sense that our story was just beginning,
A brief brushstroke in the portrait of us
That was leading me to think that


              Hello


Does not mean ‘I love you’
But it does mean
‘I will learn to’

—  Koi No Yokan - the sense upon first meeting a person that the two of you are going to fall into love. This is different than “love at first sight,” since it implies that you might have a sense of imminent love, somewhere down the road, without yet feeling it // 1.30.16

Steve was sitting at the kitchen table. Lacing his fingers together, he rested his chin down on the bridge. He sighed, eyes locked on the screen of his laptop as he tried to find the right words.

He wrote a sentence that he erased a few seconds later and with another defeated sigh, he decided he needed a break. Feet planted on the floor, he pushed away from the table. The legs of his chair scraped against the wooden floor as he stood up and returned to the open-plan kitchen to fill his mug with coffee.

He took the coffee pot, his eyes cast down, carefully avoiding looking at Bucky’s half empty room at the other end of the flat. Bucky Barnes, his best friend since childhood, was now living with his college sweetheart, Dot. Steve took a quick sip of the steaming liquid before he sat in front of his laptop. It took him a while but he finally came up with something he liked.
