Nature or Nurture

02 Dec

How did he know?

She asks herself the question over and over again.

How could he tell from a photograph, a handful of posts, a dozen seemingly innocuous online messages?

What was it about her that had made him so certain, so confident, so sure?

How can he write himself into her head, into her heart. How can he read what she is thinking? How can he see so deep inside her. Every secret. Every wish, Every desire.

And how does he make her body react in the way that it does. Sometimes despite herself.

And where did this overpowering urge to please him come from?

Is it her nature?

Or his nurture?

    I believe it has to be a good bit of both …. A very delicate balance.

    I ask myself “how does he know” each time I read one of your writings. Your words have allowed me to make sense of feelings I’ve had about my needs that I was at a loss to do so before. You’ve shown light into my life and for that I thank you.

    the mystery of all
    to never know
    our sweetest desire of all
    to read and feel
    with the mind and soul…
