She

31 Dec

thomas_saliot

She is not convinced by his words.

She has seen him use them before, showering them like handfuls of confetti over the wide-eyed and the wanton, the gentle and the cruel, the pretty and the good.  She knows his vocabulary like she knows the menu in her favourite restaurant.  They are an over-played song on her mp3. They are familiar road signs on a map of desire and seduction.

Yet she shares some of the blame.  If they had discovered each other earlier he would have realised the true measure and worth of words like beauty and angel . As it is, they now have no currency, no value, no power, when he is describing her.

Yet if ever there was one for whom such words were fashioned, it is she.

    Very moving. So very wistful it hurts.

    If I could travel through time and change something….there are words I would have both spoken less and heard less, so that when they were truly REAL, I would not be so quick to wonder…..

    beautifully haunting, but considering your skills with emoting, I think you have the words that would reach her ( I assume it is the woman of the previous post ) Perhaps this is life’s new task for you. Perhaps this point in time is what all of the previous ones have led you to. Any woman with a good heart can be touched with real sincerity, right? If anyone could honestly feel that to be true, it would be one like you. Happy New Year, Jayne

      It is the woman of ‘Treasured’, yes. And she is somehow unique.
      Thank you. I don’t deserve your kind words.
      Happy New Year to you too.

    As a girl, I can understand her skepticism. Question is, will she ever truly believe you? Well written. Very lovely, as always

    Your words have run on a loop in my mind since reading them yesterday.

    “…they now have no currency, no value, no power…”

    Thank you for sharing your gift, Sir.

    I think like all the other readers here, I find myself utterly hooked to your blog. It is haunting, evocative, exquisite like the best of wines. With posts like these, I sense an urge nagging me to just finish reading the complete blog at the earliest. 😀
