Soul Bonds #Short Prose #Flash Fiction

Winter night tormented by hauling winds. I lie in bed. I can hear that beautiful raspy voice of his:

“I have seen so much in my life: indescribable humiliations, deep scars on burned faces, dreams crushed like broken glass on empty floors.

We desperately want to love, to possess each other, caught in a perpetual rush to justify our existence.

Yet there is no love that can fully satisfy us.  The passions of the flesh get exhausted in bed. What is left is exhausted by our imagination.

Physical love does not bind forever. Soul bonds do.”

Memories of a silky African violet nightgown modeling my body.

Ah, where are you? Where are you now?

  1. Souls bond. So true. This is going to be my fav piece by you , dear G.
    Every word is a home truth. Beautifully penned by the Princess of Prose.

     
  2. Good morning G. Another wonderful excerpt of Glass Lovers.

    Your character is correct; the passions of the flesh do exhaust. True love consists of so much more; spiritual, intellectual, and perhaps creative connections. As you said the connection of the soul can bond forever.

    Beautifully written, with enough intrigue to keep us wanting more.

     
    1. Good morning Drew.

        I don’t want to bombard you with my mails. Along with our musical project, I want to do a video as well. Unlike last time, I want to shoot my own video, landscapes. I want it so bad. But with video Im not as confident as the music. But I want to. 🙂
