Time to leave



She was standing in a shadow, by the window, her little fists curled under her scarf.
It is time to leave, he said. She turned her gaze towards him: are you going to be back soon? He just stood up silent. You cannot die on me, she said. He started limping towards the door. You are not allowed to die, not before you kiss me. He was now turning to her voice: Why? Why even wish to change me? Love! I wish not to change you. I just wish not to lose you. He was now limping towards her smile. First time when she took the courage to say it Love. First time when he saw her. No ornaments, just molten gold. He curled his hands around her shoulders and kissed her.


Note:
it is kind of soapy, sugary but I had not slept much lately and it starts to affect me. I get into those teary moods all the time nowadays.

Hi Anamari!

Nice to know someone else is going through the hell that is grad school! But you'll be done next semester...wow, that's fast! I probably have another 5 (ok, that's generous...probably at least 6!) of this nonsense...yikes!

No ornaments, just molten gold - is a lovely phrase.

Annamari said...

Thanks.

K: Oh, I'll be only done with accounting this semester...

Juliet:
it is borowed, this is in one of the first posts: "No ornaments
Survive/A crucible./Fire reveals/
Only molten/Gold."
Sant Tukaram -do not waste words.

Cool. Very film noir-ish.

Annamari said...

film-noirish? like in Hollywood crime drama?

I'll take it as a compliment but it is sign that I need a break.
Ok I'll see about Sarah Palin and accounting this week end.

You may be in a state of turmoil, but your words are very well organised. Never mind the subject matter - if you can say it l;ike this...go for it.
