She Being Me

Question? Hmm?   The point of view of She: Writer, Thinker, Traveler, Worrier, and Dreamer.
She, Being Me.

Mom: That’s Fernand from Count of Monte Cristo? Are you sure? The little boy with the milky skin?

Me: Yes, Ma. It’s Fernand.

Mom: Oh, ok. Maybe I’ll stay up and watch the movie. 

Mm hmm. She ain’t blind!

(Note that she’d rather fall into a thorny rosebush than watch action films.)

The stranger on the train who transfixed me. I adore seeing people engrossed in books, so engrossed, that they chew on their fingernails and just seem happily lost. The world of a book…

#germany  #i want to go to there  #tree lined path 

our cocoon of silence is
not a mutual punishment.
we breathe inside silence, you
and i, feeding off the unuttered
thoughts that dangle in the air,
pulling the invisible strings until
they rest on our beating hearts.
you know me, and i know you.
ours is not silence as withholding—
it is silence with holding.
silence with entwined hands.
silence with bowed heads,
in appreciation of our quiet communion.
words have been the crutch we never needed, white noise that belonged outside of us.
and so when you sigh, i sigh,
for us—
it means i love you.
