Reluctant Lover

- by Balto

This week's theme: Coupling

cou·ple
n.

  1. Two items of the same kind; a pair.
  2. Something that joins or connects two things together; a link.
  3. (used with a sing. or pl. verb)
    a. Two people united, as by betrothal or marriage.
    b. Two people together.

Two people together. A pair bond. It is a desire that has driven humans as far back as anyone can trace. It is the theme of some of our oldest tales and found in some of our oldest images. And here in the 21st century, it holds us captive still.

-Melissa Morton
