Ring

26 May

She was the golden girl of her generation.

Her intelligence was deep, her beauty flawless, her skin perfect, her body stunning, her movement full of grace. She played guitar like a gypsy and piano like an angel.  She was peaches and cream and yet she was rock and roll.  Everyone wanted her or wanted to be her.

The first time I saw her she was gliding through a party and turning every head.  When her gaze rested upon me my whole world was turned utterly inside out and upside down.

What she saw in me I still wonder to this day.  I was a writer, a revolutionary, a dreamer, a child in the body of a man.  I was penniless, lost, a rebel who had failed his cause.  I had nothing to give except hunger, and the wide and restless pursuit of something undefined.

Yet she danced for me alone in the small hours of a magical night when the air was soft and the moonlight silvered her hair.  She gave herself completely, her body wrapping itself about me, her heart beating to the rhythm of my own.  We became lost in each other and we found each other.  I gave her all my dreams and she showed me a paradise on earth.

In the morning she left with a smile that made me dizzy with love.

She still wears my ring.

    I adore this and you.
    Sincerely.
    You show me so many ways love exists in this world. You help me have confidence in my own needs and gifts.
    Bless you, my good, good friend.

      I am proud to have done so, although you over play my part in it. Smiles.

    A love that has remained though not remained unchanged. That has aged, mellowed and yet developed its own distinct bouquet unmatched and unparalleled in other pairings. I am glad that you are home.

    Just curious, would this be she in the picture above? If so, I can tell she is very beautiful.
