There are people who have money and people who are rich

Chloe comes home after her day at the ad agency carrying three Chanel shopping bags and a new Missoni scarf around that slender swan's neck of hers. It's an expensive form of consolation but we never talk about money. She doesn't work because she has to, she just wants to prove that she can.

She doesn't say it but I can tell from her impulse buying that her father (his name is Jack) hasn't called yet. "What do you want to do this weekend" I ask. "Drugs" she says. "Opium cigarettes don't count."

I'm writing a letter to Henry but I know I'm never going to post it. When the ink dries I will put it in an egg white envelope with his address and a stamp and hide it in my night stand drawer. When we have sex in my bed I will know that whatever I want to tell him is only a few inches away, so close to being revealed and the tension in my body feels like electricity.

  1. "slender swan's neck..." A beautiful phrase.

  2. O. i adore the idea of writing a letter to a lover and hiding in a drawer that is near to the bed we are making love in-
    a delicious secret.

  3. I hope Chloe's father calls - if anything, so that he can prove her wrong that he's not worth her time still (even if he didn't in the past).

  4. I love what you write. I can feel the void gloominess from here. :) xx

  5. i love the mystery that comes with the last paragraph -- making love, baring your body, baring what seems to be your all, but little does your lover know that there is still something yet to be revealed.

    love love your writing <3

  10. Perhaps you should hand over the letters ... it's better to open up and let him read your mind !!!

  12. Yes, i wrote it too. A letter. A poem. With a graphite pencil. Black hard words on white paper. Enveloped it. Wrote down the address. Stuck a postal stamp. Then dropped it into the slot between books in my bookshelf. Night after night passed, one after another but it won't decay. But i wouldn't send it. How could i've had sex with the words that i loved? Words that are mine?

    Months passed, the infection was still there. In the bookshelf. "Drugs" weren't an option. "Drugs heal". If it healed how would i have lived? - "without infection".

    So on a sunny day, i stack the books out of shelf. Tore the envelope. Read the hard graphite words. Picked the lighter on the table which was next to eraser. And burned the paper to as black as words themselves.
    Now the infection has smoked into thin air. Spreading all the time. And i won't heal. I smile - "My love is free."

  30. Please write a book and I'll buy a copy.

  31. I'm astonished. I think I said this earlier. But your style of writing is so good. But is this like... reality? 'Cause you write it in a way that it could be a book or story or whatever... It's amazing.

    If it is reality: then why not let him read your letter?
