Another inexperienced latest spanking novel

There is only a sheet of glass between me and the raging city. I am motionless, a part of this great skyline.

The silence inside brings out the paradoxes of the outside.

I can see what I hear.
I can hear what I touch.
I can touch what I feel.
I can feel what I smell.
I can smell when she speaks.
When she speaks to me.

She speaks to me in the most fragile of whispers. Whispers meant only for me. The wind crackling them up, as every syllable caresses my ears. She tells me of how she has waited for our union. How it has been so many years since we both saw the dream of this moment.

All this as I move through her, soaking up the experience of being in her. Life moves in a swirl around me, as I see everything that I had dreamt of. The sights and sounds of her, just as I had imagined.

Imagination is such a wonderful thing, when it comes to life.

I am going to trust you when you say that imaginations come to life one day... right now I am only building newer stories in my head, the one which I want to be a part of some day...

"The silence inside brings out the paradoxes of the outside."

One of the wisest ways to express The Moment in words.

I can see what I hear.
I can hear what I touch.
I can touch what I feel.
I can feel what I smell.
I can smell when she speaks.
When she speaks to me.

transience said...

dare i say i adored the title?

Nightfly said...

I kind of stumbled upon your post through prerona's blog. So glad I did.

Since "August" is the month of my birth, as well as my Grandfather's name, I have a sort of built-in affinity...and then came your writing. Brilliant! Simply brilliant.

I WILL be back.

Aristocrat said...

Oh my, this is simply lovely.

The title almost plays on a pun, if I get the subtle message of what you are sending to your readers. Sensual and full of imagery. I love it!

Anonymous said...

Awaiting the smiley in response,

Phal.

random bugs

stumbled on your blog via bittersweetblue and I was utterly shocked to find my flickr badge on your blog. At first I thought, wow, what a devoted fan. Then after poking around in your code, I realized that its prolly my lazy browser.

Roger Stevens said...

The smell of her words...

That's an interesting idea.

Great post as always.

aristera says said...

but is it essential for imagination to come to life...to validate... to be wonderful?

Cecilia said...

This sent tickles down my spine, shivers in my soul, and shakeries on my knees. Imagine that, A. :)

. : A : . said...

Roger Stevens - Thank you.

aristera says - Not, it is not. But it is even more wonderful when it comes to life.

Cecilia - Imagining. ;-)

Phoenix said...

Imagination is such a wonderful thing..when it comes to life..at your blog!

Silvermoon said...

I particularly like the last line and what you purposely didn't disclose in your piece.) Nice!

. : A : . said...

Phoenix, Silvermoon - Thank you.

Extempore said...

I love the flow of the paradoxes in this - how hearing flows to touch to feeling... things that we don't always notice.

I am not quite sure that the she is woman in the conventional sense of the word. And I love my indecision - it's positively delectable! :-)

Mriganayanii said...

'the sights and sounds of her, just as i had imagined'

i loved that, that was so totally beautiful...

. : A : . said...

Extempore - You are on the right track. ;-)

Mriganayanii- Thanks.
