Tonight I'm one step closer to writing a song with a line I've been wanting to use for years:
Words may slip, and so might I
I slip your hand into mine
He reached for my hand tonight not realizing the implications of his simple, playful gesture.
You see, the second month of this year he told me he finds me to be an attractive woman. He went on to describe qualities and characteristics he sees in me, affirming my gifts and my character. He made no mention of my physical appearance - not because he doesn't think I'm pretty, but because ultimately, in today's post modern, porn dominated world, it isn't the external that attracts a guy to a girl.
A week later, in the third month of the year, another man arrived in the city. During his brief stay he unexpectantedly swept me off my feet, and I "forgot" about February. March showed a tremendous amount of upfront interest that kept me wondering and hopeful for months. But I think he was only attracted to the physical me, or the idea of me. So when I wasn't in front of him anymore, he forgot me. I supsect he wasn't attracted to my spirit, and so his attraction for me was short-lived - or so that's my theory. But I also suspect, if he took the time to get to know my spirit, he would be amazed to have found someone who understands his spirit. And we'd both feel known and understood a bit more.
