No more, no less

18 Jun

It required so little effort for her not to have taken him for granted that she can have only made a conscious decision to have taken him as such.

In making that decision she signalled that she attached no value to his adoration, his friendship, his care, and his protection.  It feels like a minor tragedy that she is the only person to whom he has ever offered these things so unconditionally when all the time she clearly had no need of them.

Yet he understands her reasons completely. He wants her to be happy and content, even if he is not part of that happiness.

He is grateful for what they shared, the wonderful stolen days, that extraordinary night.  He is thankful for the creative energy that she has inspired in him these last weeks.  He is proud to have had her as his companion..

He bears her no ill will or malice.  He will be true to his word.

They will return to the way they once were. Before everything.

Precisely no more, and certainly no less.

    I’m sure she is lovely whomever she is even if only a phantom; “no more no less.”

    I love this….unfortunately, my current muse is a dead man that I just can’t seem to purge from my memories. Perhaps, it is because half of my being comes from him….

    I think it’d have been better if she’d have come to her senses ; >
