Only because

15 Apr


She asks ‘why me?’

Then she suggests that I have a secret, sacred gift of words that weave a silken, seductive, silver web.

I explain it is but a trick of cheap smoke and music hall mirrors, a clever refraction of an entirely ordinary light.

Yet she points out that those that follow are seemingly compelled by the rise and fall, the cadence and cascade, the promise, the pleasure, and the pain.

I shrug. I cannot answer.

I am always at a loss to understand why my flame attracts beauty when I think the candle from which it burns is so unexceptional. The mystery is greater to me than anyone.

Yet she persists. ‘But of them all, what makes me so special?  What makes me worthy?’

I look into her wide, eloquent, achingly lovely, almost innocent eyes.

‘Because, my sweet, darling girl,..’  I pause, trying to find the words that perfectly capture the rare, wonderful and exotic creature she is.

‘Only because you are you.’

    such romance. to be to yourself in perfect imperfection and in your own mind mundane – yet that is the very thing that separates you in the right person’s eyes. Powerfully emotive and moving.

    Beautiful! I like the line, “Then she suggests that I have a secret, sacred gift of words that weave a silken, seductive, silver web.”

    It was because of him, my RD alight with fireflies. Tiny yellow lights dancing with orange embers against the starry sky, and she wondered again why the world was so magical right where she was.

    She is toying with her hair as much as she toys with an idea of coy insecurity. “Why me?” Reading your words sometimes I wonder, who is more lucky in your stories – him or her..
    Beautifully written. But you know it, right?

      You are a sharp girl.
      Thank you.
      And yes, I think it is OK. Smiles.

        Owls do have a sharp eye, for sure. And a little correction.. I dont really consider myself a girl anymore. Woman.

          I use the two with almost complete interchangeability – although elegance, the ability to walk sexily in heels, and a taste for fine wine tends to make me use ‘woman’ rather than ‘girl’.
          Except in circumstances where ‘good girl’ can only be used.

    Silver web indeed.
    Another moment so well captured as it repeats across many loves, unique yet universal.
    Perhaps it is the truth of what you write that is so powerful….There is always elegance and beauty in truth.

    The weaving together of humility and strength are so alluring. That is why all that follow are so compelled and blessed to read such beauty. She is a lucky girl indeed.
