a figment of my mush imagination

18 Jan

it was so unbelievable the way they met…they were so unready, natural. maybe that is why it felt so precious… and she refused to even look in his direction. he was older, wiser, richer, calmer, funnier?, but there were a bunch of little little things that she vehemently disapproved of in him… otherwise, he was her perfect charmer.

all the angels were working extra time, and so the both of them had to do very little.. just a funny insult here and there did the job. they wanted to marry and have children. they did not agree with the number though. everything she wanted to hear, he said. everything she thought would bother him, he ignored beautifully. his authority was his sex appeal which she secretly loved to succumb to. both knew it, and played along. like little kids playing husband and wife. unfortunately they were grown up little kids.

she took pride in her strength, until he swept her off her feet. from not looking in his direction.. to desperately sneaking to check on him.. someone, who she began to believe and eventually assumed was made for her, all planned to precise levels of perfection by nature.

and then nature took its course. jill came tumbling down. every time she reconciled myself, it felt more fake. she tumbled deeper into the whirlpool of love. only he could understand. cos jack fell down the hill too. it seemed difficult to believe that there were greener pastures. she liked this brown dry one, dear lord. you showed her to see green in it. and she did. now she rubs her eyes, over and over…and it just doesn’t cease to be green.

her heart now feels sold. but she steals it and places it back in herself.
you are missed intensely, jack.
