He dreamed he was loved. A love guarded fiercely, with passion. A love that was not unconditional. Not the blank slate love of a child or an animal so programmed by instinct. This love was willful and earned. Having glimpsed an injured brilliance beneath the flab and sweat and stench she weaned it to health. Making it stronger, and brighter, and more prominent with each passing day; until it erupted. And he was transformed. to embody that brilliance. And she protected that embodiment. Letting nothing call it to question. She cared for him as he never could for himself. She soothed and softened and loved the deep furrow from his brow. And her passion overwhelmed him.
And he wanted for nothing.
And when he opened his eyes To **** and filth with only the kiss of concrete and the banter of horns and obscenities and footsteps. ******* FOOTSTEPS. Heels pittering purposefully to mask exhausted uncertainty Brogues, and wingtips clicking; with a cocky juvenile illusion of importance. Boots plodding heavily under the weight of duty, to build, and fix, and secure for the others. And through a fog laid thick and throbbing by poisons chased dutifully the night before; he felt her fierce love for a fleeting moment Guarding, and loving his shining brilliance until it erupted from him; With bile and blood, **** and regret coldly rejected by his concrete companion. And she was gone once again.
I almost never write in the third person but thought I would give it a try (part of my narcissism therapy ;) ) Feedback welcome (also part of it...:))
