Ink has dried

04 Sep

Her head on the pillow

I believed there would be a final chapter.

A last blaze of glory.

Her body eloquent in its submission. Her large, almond-shaped eyes wide with fear and desire. Her red lipstick smudged beneath my fingers.

Her nerves dancing beneath my touch.

Her long dark hair spread like a wild storm upon sacrificial white sheets. Her nakedness pure and fresh, captured in leather.  And in bold, secure knots.

But in this heavy, echoing, empty silence I am no longer certain.

Perhaps the final page has already been written.

The ink has dried.

    Perhaps you should run the tip of your finger across it, every so carefully, and see.

    “New beginnings are often disguised as painful endings…” ~ Lao Tzu

    I hope the ending is not painful, and the beginning is of something wonderful.
    And that you won’t stop writing… Would miss your words. xo

    Maybe the final chapter of this story has been written. Time to write a new one!

    Unsettling, like yearnings unappeased… Or a new leaf is turning. Your words continue to fascinate.

    Most things end before we realize they do…but many endings are just transformations – the essence slipping away to return in another form…Your experience is beautifully rendered as always.

    Everything has an ending…the only thing we decide is will it go out with a bang or slowly fade into the dark.
