"Here is my secret. It is very simple: It is only with the heart that one can see rightly; what is essential is invisible to the eye.."- Antoine de Saint Exupéry

She is still on the bed

She is still on the bed… White and still like the water of the deepest lake in the most peaceful morning…

Light flowing, dripping from behind heavy curtains… cool air caressing her face, entering her nostrils… sunshine touching her shivering eyelids… his hand on her back, his breath on her hair, his strong perfume floating, his voice, his sweet voice lingering in her ear…

She opens her big eyes, tries to sit on the edge of the bed, tries to keep her back straight and sighs, gasping for more life…

She closes her sad eyes… He left only a memory.

    • Do you remember “She is still on my bed”? This is a different moment of a different life from a different POV… 🙂

      June 16, 2012 at 23:54

      • My post? Yes. And I rather prefer your POV … in this case!

        June 16, 2012 at 23:59

      • Why not your POV? She was still there, with you, beautiful, loving you… yours, even though you were too consumed by the thought that you might lose her…
        My POV? It is indeed closer to the reality of life, of those 3 words about it, that whatever happens, big or small, horrid or beautiful IT GOES ON… with or without us…
