My Thoughts On Hollywood Love and Romance: Leo and Kate
Leo and Kate and What I See From The Outside Looking In
Yesterday, I was reminded about something I think about often; True Love. What is true love? I don’t think anyone could really answer that unless you actually are in it, or know how to recognize two people that are in it. The two people who I recognized were Leonardo Di Caprio and Kate Winslet. Yeah, I ran across those adoring pictures we loved of these two on the Internet again yesterday. The award show hugs and kisses. The way they stare and react to each other. If they don’t recognize it, everyone else certainly does with no doubt. Although, I would be willing to bet these two know exactly that they are in love and are meant for each other, they just will not allow themselves to be. I don’t blame them. For such an inspiring love as they have, don’t you think it would ruin it if they were to get together. We don’t want that. We want the allure of the whole thing. We want the want of the situation, the tease and the mystery of it all. Even though, to me, it doesn't seem a mystery, it appears to us pretty factual. However, we still have to categorize it as that, because without Leo and Kate’s complete validation that we are right, well, I guess we have to assume we are wrong.
So, these two are not a couple, and I would be willing to bet they never will be, because real love has an intensity, I believe, that keeps at least one of them from really making a commitment to admitting they are in love in that way. It’s two people concealing a hidden pain to be together, a noticeable admiration when they are together, along with that feeling of complete love we all share with them as we watch them together. It’s undeniable to us who watch them, and purposely prudent for both to keep a grasp on.
Oh well, it’s life. They get to be in the public eye and entertain and tease us with their denial, and we get to dream they will be together forever one day. Carry on Leo and Kate. We love your real-life hidden romance.
Do You Notice Rare Love When You See It
This type of love, in my opinion, is rare. We’ve seen it in Hollywood a few times, and I’m sure some of us, in reality, have been lucky enough to experience it ourselves. Nevertheless, it is pretty rare. It’s uncommon that some have it and don’t even want to acknowledge it. Some have it, but for lack of knowing how to handle it, will screw it up.
Some more honorable mentions who I believe had this type of love is; Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton, and also Kathryn Hepburn and Spencer Tracy.
This type of love can be complicated. A few of these people were already married, and are validated in the fact that they kept a distance from their soul mates for honor of vows.
This Is Sweet
Sometimes True Love Cannot Be Contained
However, that now brings me to two people who were meant to be, they defy everything I just described; from Leo and Kate’s denial, to Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton’s fight to be together, and the affair between Hepburn and Tracy, which was never really acknowledged. Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt have openly displayed it all. They have allowed everyone to come in and know of their true love. I think they did the right thing in their situation. These two undoubtedly could not and did not want to live a life without each other. They wanted to take that chance on forever working out.
Lately, tabloids have stated that there is trouble in paradise for these two, but I don’t know. I think maybe they are just experiencing what is everyone’s inevitable fate when choosing to be together; and that is, not allowing the stress of life to tear down a true union. I don’t know if they are actually having issues, but I believe these two are some of the rarities I’ve described. Their love is true. We actually hated it at first, but we watched it happening on the big screen as Mr. and Mrs. Smith. The movie was fictional, but real in some other ways. Admit it, we all caught the non-fictional scenes.
Whichever way love comes about, if it’s true, it will last a lifetime in secret or in real time. I, myself, would want not to get with my true love forever. I have experienced relationships that have brought me down to reality a time or two. I wouldn’t want the struggle anymore, and certainly if the person I was with is my true love and soul mate, I think I would want the Kate and Leo scenario. That way, even though it would be hard at times, I would still know that deep feeling all my life. The love kept locked within my heart for only me and him, that gets to come out and shine together on occasion. I think that would be perfect!
My poem touches on true love that is denied. A love that one out of the two tries harder than the other even though the love is there. At the end it is what it is and always will be. INFINITY

He loves me. He just
doesn’t know how to
I love him, but the
circumstance has now
made me void.
Climb a hill, then crash and
burn. Whose fault is it
when there’s no return?
I will never be splendid
enough for him, not for
He will never love me
for me, just for me.
Where will I go now? I’m
stuck in this place.
I can’t breathe if I step away,
yet I suffocate when I try
Settle seems the best thing
to do. Compare notes, call
We will always exist in our
own parallel universe.
We will stay here knowing
what was meant to fit, could
hearts broken in our chests,
longing for the other half that’s
a perfect match.
What a strange thing to know,
that some live like this incessantly
uncertainty always keeping one
from understanding how to
last forever together.
About The Song I Chose
The song was perfect to accompany this hub and mostly my poem. I found the meaning to the song after I picked and posted the video, and was thrilled at what the song was talking about. Because with a lot of songs, you interpret it your own way and it doesn't always fit the artist's take on it. I was really thrilled to read this as it was exactly how I interpreted the song.
The Meaning: Birdy and Rhodes sing about the pain of being in a relationship where the other half refuses to open up and give themselves ...just to say something real. While they don't want to go they are beginning to see that's the only way forward ...there's a light on the road... and it does not include this person they love so much. They have to let it all go and begin again despite the pain this will mean, but they know that if they were strong enough to love they will also be strong enough to start anew.
