Shadow Boxing #Glass Lovers

Glass of tequila in his hand, white shirt half open on his chest, raillery in his powerful voice, Jacques’ eyes pierced into Miquel’s:

‘Salud Conquistador!’

Miguel laughed, handsome as sin, wind in his inky hair, flames in his green eyes, hands caressing my hips.

‘A votre santé, mon Maréchal de France!’ 

His laughter resonated in the depths of the night. A shrill echo came back through the cool air.


Jacques’ blue eyes fixed into mine. My eyes flickered into his. He spoke:

“Sin takes place in the mind not in the flesh.”

Shock. Jacques was forcing me to fight my own shadows. My hands pressed on Miguel’s; my body tensed. Miguel’s lips shivered.

Knifes were out. All bets were off.  One of us was going to break.

    1. What an astute observation my dear Y. Thank you so much for your comment. Do you think I can get somebody in Hollywood to pay attention to me? 😊😊😊 thank you again. I really appreciate your comments!

  1. Wonderful styling. Mixing languages, images, sensations, open finals. All the scars of a very nice way of writing. Thanks for the pleasure. And for sharing!

    1. I am so glad that you like it! Thank you so much for being so kind to me, dear B! Your words mean a lot to me.

  2. For about half a year, I did different readings on this little excerpt, a mark for good writing. Every reading was different and I found different shades. I wonder if the “masculine” is equivalent to “conquistador” or conquest? Either way, every answer remains for the reader.

    1. My Dear B, the answer to your question is no. Anyway, thank you so much for your support! Very grateful to you🙏
