"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


“See, look at them, he’s a friend of mine. She’s beautiful, rich, she supports him, she would make his every fantasy come true. Now that is a true woman.”

As he was pronouncing the words the time stopped for her. Suddenly she was holding the hand of a stranger.

As she took away her hand from his hand it felt like a thousand veils falling from her eyes.

Oh, how she loved him… But he was not the same man anymore. It felt as if the sweet lover she used to know had vanished from the face of Earth.

Struggling to keep the tears behind her eyes and not to burst she stopped and made a first step away from him.

“What’s wrong? Another scene? You and your scenes, I’m sick and tired of your reactions!”

Eyes full of grief she turned away and left him in the middle of the street.

Rain kept falling from the sky as if the sky itself would have mourned for her soul.

She stopped in front of the newspapers booth. On the front page a black and white picture of a smiling woman :

 “You are perfect and you need noone to prove it!”

    • Dear Q.,
      Many many thanks for honouring me and thinking of me. I made a promise to myself that I will not accept awards anymore. It’s my way of diminishing my ego, if you want a reason. 🙂
      Many hugs and waves back to you! 😉 🙂

    • Thank you so much Justine, you honour me, you are too kind. You honour me by stopping by and reading and sharing thoughts with me. For me awards are not much worth, they only increase the ego, which I am doing my best to diminish. You are a spiritual person and you will understand this better than others.
      Peace and Love to you, Justine! 🙂

  3. I always like walking in the rain, so no one can see me crying…

    • 🙂 “I’ll never let you see
      The way my broken heart is hurting me
      I’ve got my pride and I know how to hide
      All my sorrow and pain
      I’ll do my crying in the rain…”

      • When someone is crying, of course, the noble thing to do is to comfort them. But if someone is trying to hide their tears, it may also be noble to pretend you do not notice them… 🙂
