Gimme shelter

We don't talk about Carl, whenever I mention his name she quickly changes the subject or pretends not to hear me from across the room. I'm anxious to know more but her silence and insecure body language speaks volumes too. I can only guess what drove them apart in the end and made her go all the way to New York to see me.

"Write about my outfit" she says. It's a towel but on her it looks like a little black dress and she knows it. We sit opposite each other on the bed listening to Let it bleed in the dark, the curtains closed to block out the daylight, somehow mimicking those moments I shared with him years ago when we were both children. Maybe she knows, but she plays along and looks up at me from under her hair just like he used to do and I smile back, just like I used to.

She gets up from the bed, puts on matching underwear and dances barefoot over the black marble floors in the hallway just outside my room. When I close my eyes and listen I can hear her softly singing along with the lyrics, almost like a whisper:

I tell you love, sister, it's just a kiss away
It's just a kiss away

  13. Even though I read every post from this blog, I can never think of anything to say in response. It says everything in the first two sentences. The rest is silence.

  15. Your blog is so beautifully written. It makes me want to take it off the screen and curl up under a duvet to read. I have loads to do and I am annoyed that I am rushing through your posts so I have decided to put this aside and when I have nothing to do I will sit and take my time and devour each and every word. Thank you for visiting my blog and bringing me here. Love Elle xo

  23. I guess I have to be an old reader to actually understand who Carl is but I'm guessing that he's a past lover? I'm wondering why your sister or friend is ignoring your question though. O__O you think they have things going on with each other?!

    anyway, thanks for the comment on my blog... you're right... i guess real or not real, shooting stars are beautiful.

  27. Wow, did you write that? If so, bravo. It's fabulous. The photos are cool as well.

  28. AVI, thanks for dropping in my blog. This way I've got to know yours, and I LOVE it. So you've got a new follower right now, one more of your thousands. My fear is that it can be addictive too. Your writing hooks me. I guess that is the intention of any writer. I wish I could do that too. But it is the persons behind the stories and the pictures that dazzles me, like a light in the night, but what can I do.
