In Black and White

It’s there, right there, in black and white, glowing on the screening, screaming off the page.

It’s here, right here, with the simplest of clicks, the tinniest of taps, it’s here for me see.

It’s here, it’s there, as bright as day, as dark as this winter’s night, for me, for all, for her to feel.

It’s there, it’s here, glaring at me, toying with me, knotting my stomach, gripping my body, crazing my mind.

It’s there, it’s here, your desire. Your desire.

But now it’s your desire, your passion, your ardour, your hard dripping fire for another, fashioned in the language you love so well, in the words that once played our own erotic game, in the poetry that was mine, in the prose you spilled for my aching flesh, in the verse that tumbled from these very lips, in the tongue now piqued by the curves, the sensuality, the femininity of this other woman.

It’s there, it’s here, your desire, in the deep shadows of black, in the blinding rage of white.

It’s here, it’s there, your desire. Your desire and my jealousy.

    Ooh, a new facet to contemplate…

  2. Cheeky Minx 2012.06.20 9:24pm

    It's not a facet I'm particularly proud or fond of, Os. But with some men – with one man – it rears its ugly head. Here's hoping it fades soon…

    It will fade minx, but also don't be afraid to look around the next corner or open the door in front of you.
    Someone better, more appreciative of what you have to offer will be around that bend, just inside that unopened door. Just don't ever forget to keep the eyes and the heart open.

    We don't have a lot of jealousy in our relationship, but once in awhile we detect a hint of it. It's part of being human, and admittedly once in awhile it's nice to know that neither of us is growing complacent.

    We hope your feelings of jealousy dissipate soon.

    Jealousy's a hard emotion to tame, all the more so because it's not a simple matter. There is “good” jealousy and “bad” jealousy (but our own jealousy always seems to be of the good variety).

    I imagine only the passage of time will help it go away. It's not something one can reason out of one's self.

    Southern Sir: While the impulse is to hide away, I'm trying to remain as open as possible. I hope you're right about that better man round the bend, SSir…

    Jack and Jill: Thank you so much for your kind thoughts and for sharing your own experience, J…

    Verbose Lothario: You're so very right, VL. Reason has no place in jealousy's modus operandi. I keep wishing it would temper its sting but alas only time will help it fade…

    Thank you all so much for your heartwarming support. It means a great deal.

    The gripping, knots and crazing.. I get that when I open this blog and devour your offerings. I didn't think I was the jealous type.. But perhaps I am?

  8. Cheeky Minx 2012.06.28 6:36am

    Now I'm rather hoping you're just that type, bhp.

    And if it's my good fortune you're that jealous guy, I have ways to soothe and quell the disquiet…
