She sits on her bed
Waiting for the sun to rise
She has been awake for days
Black circles form under her eyes
She smiles…more drama is always needed

She stares into a blue screen
Her television has been on sleeping mode
She tries to count the freckles on her thighs
Pulls her hair behind her ears

Her lover is sleeping by her right side
Clueless to her actions
She stares at him
She tries to poke him
He’s still asleep…always fell into a deep sleep

She tries to get out of bed
The cracking sound forces her to stay still
She looks at her watch…2 hours till sunrise
She lies on her back

Her second lover is sleeping by her left side
Muttering some nonsense
She stares at him
She laughs at his words
He would never know…talking while asleep

She stares at the ceiling
She sits straight
She shakes her head
She’s alone in bed
She says:
“My mind is playing tricks on me”

Fade to black

She stands in her living room
Wearing her white silk dress
Takes a gulp from her coffee
Pulls her hair behind her ears

Her lover kisses her
Sits on a sofa
Admiring her frozen posture
He has no clue…she has made sure of that

Her second lover hugs her
Smells her hair
Kisses her neck
She smiles…he would never find out

Tears drown her face
She drops her mug
She watches it splatter into tiny pieces
She shakes her head
She says:
“You’re gone! I’m alone…I’m alone”

Fade to black

She stands in her photo lab
Surrounded by red light
She rubs her eyes
Pulls her hair behind her ears

Her lover hands her a set of negatives
He comments on her new work
He thinks it’s the best so far
She stares at a light bulb…what a fool

Her second lover stands by her side
Their favorite song plays in the background
He grabs her hand and forces her to dance
She closes her eyes…such a great dancer

She tares her pictures
She closes her ears
Takes a deep breath
She’s alone
She says:
“I’m a coward…a coward!”

Fade to black

She lies on her bed
Staring at the ceiling
She closes her eyes
Her lover is sleeping soundly on her right side
Her second lover is muttering on her left side

She pokes them
They don’t even move
She jumps on her bed
She screams and kicks them
They continue to sleep

She stares at them
Panting heavily
She says:
“I deserve this…I deserve it!
Is it true when someone leaves you…part of them is stuck with you?
Is it true that you will keep haunting me…even after I’ve been gone?
I’m gone…I’m truly gone…will you remember me?”

Inspired by the crazy and stupid mistakes we make in life...a little "Un Menage A trois"....the little skeletons in our closets ;)

when someone leaves you, part of them is stuck with you...
or more precisely, part of you becomes that someone...
and with each new person, another part of you becomes a new someone...
until at the end, you realise you're no more...
and that body you're dragging is nothing but puzzled parts of souls you've already lost a long time ago...

well, i did understand the "menage a trois"
but like both i am clueless...
after a first reading (your stuff needs multiple readings ;)) i thought it was ghosts, the kind she is with one and loves another etc...
anyway, your prose is still as light as the meanings are deep (yes yes i wrote that...)
anyway another ***

did you like bergman?

well i am thinking of making a poster with a particular typo, to comemorate his death
if you had to summarize him and his work, in one sentence (dont give me the "genius from the north") what would you say?
:hug:

I would say "The one who portrayed his third eye"

This is the sentence I use whenever I would describe bergman ;)

hope you like it :hug:

Lynnelle... way beyond wordssss...

Crowded beds:)...
As you read, you expect them to do something,
but the two bastards just lay there...
like two drained steaks!
Love it!.... it's pretty different from the previous writings!

yes yes they just lie there ;)

but they're more alive through the memory that eventually keeps haunting her :)

Thanx for the fav sweetie :blowkiss:
