We were doomed. Part I.

He Sighs

by wethedreamers

He sighs as his leathered hands reach for mine in the night.

Heavy and ragged, a burden. He sighs, the bed sinks.

The thickness of the atmosphere hovers above. Push and pull.

Push her away. Pull her closer. Predator prey drunk sober.

She stirs and closes the gap, and wishes she were older.

Maybe then he'd hold her.

He sighs. Let her love you.

Love her back.

@reasonsofbeing I really hope you get some much needed rest, and that the holiday break comes quickly for you! That's such a perfect description of it; like sun shining through the fog, you can just see ahead, but not anywhere else. Like walking through a dream. You can decide if it's worrisome, or you can enjoy the thrill. One of my favorite musical artists is William Fitzsimmons, (he's mainly folk and acoustic, if you like that!) and in his albums, I swear it's a magic only he can do, he reveals so much about his life, almost embarrassingly so, but at the same time, you know absolutely nothing of what he's talking about. He's stunning. I try to write like that. Just intrigue upon intrigue. :)

@wethedreamers School is most definitely killing me in many ways, but I'm charging on! Desperately need to catch up on sleep though! Half the fun is in the mystery! There's nothing more fun than slowly discovering someone or something, and making some of your own conclusions! The best works are those that are terribly honest, but with an allure of mystery, like seeing the sun shine through the fog. It's all the more satisfying when you make a conclusion from a work or person if you had to work for it, and not knowing if you're right or not....it's terribly exciting!

@reasonsofbeing I send you my biggest and best thoughts that you get through school unscathed- I hated it so much and I sympathize with anyone going! And yes! Thank goodness, you understand. You want to be an open book, but you want to be shrouded in secrecy. Telling too much also takes the allure of the mystery away. But I still like to be somewhat honest, if someone wants to know an inspiration, I'll tell them the bare facts. But I'll forgo details. You don't ask, I won't tell. It's better if the work speaks for itself. Like if you have to ask, you don't get it.

@wethedreamers First and foremost, don't feel bad at all for having not replied for a while! I'm guilty of the same, alas school is taking over my life, haha! And your description of the need to express but also the desire to not become transparent and retain that veil of privacy completely hit the mark...as a writer, you feel the need to share all your emotions and experiences, but at the same time oversharing definitely should make one wary. I'm having the same mental struggle...i'd like to write a novel on Wattpad about my past relationship, but at the same time don't know how I'd feel about sharing some of my best and darkest moments to the world!

@reasonsofbeing I'm going to read yours when I'm finished replying to you (I apologize if my responses are sparse and if you noticed I didn't reciprocate the same kind of kindness towards you; I'm without a computer and navigating on a shared tablet, so I don't get online often!) I'm quite sad to hear you relate to my stories; they're quite gloomy! I really try to strike the balance of telling so much with nothing at all, and vice versa, telling nothing at all with so much. It's like a push and pull thing where as a writer, I need to write almost as a compulsion, but I'm aware of my apprehension of revealing too much because I enjoy privacy. Your entire reaction of being entertained but still mystified eases my mind so much.

@wethedreamers You're very welcome! I'm honored to have been the first to notice the linear storyline...my works are very similar in that sense, the majority of them are also inspired by the same relationship with an older man, so noticing the same pattern in your work came easily to me, and was very intriguing! But I must admit, picking up various clues from your different works has left me very curious about your relationship, haha! That's the beauty of writing, you feel like you know someone with just a few words.

@reasonsofbeing A majority of my work is inspired by just that; I was hoping the linear storyline was easy to notice. You're very perceptive. I think you're the first who has pointed out the connection. Thank you!

I enjoyed this! After reading your, "How have you been?" it seems that you had a relationship with an older man that turned sour. Having gone through the exact same situation myself, I can relate!! I loved the "she wishes she was older, maybe then he would hold her." Great job!

@bernardtwindwil I find myself writing and posting more sometimes solely to get your opinion and reaction. It means so much coming from you; thank you. :)

Great exposition of feelings and interactions. This was an excellent piece of writing. It was muted, not overtly descriptive. You left much to the reader's interpretation. Great job.
