•{ Curious as a Cat . . .

“Listen with curiosity. Speak with honesty. Act with integrity. The greatest problem with communication is we don’t listen to understand. We listen to reply. When we listen with curiosity, we don’t listen with the intent to reply. We listen for what’s behind the words.”
― Roy T. Bennett, The Light in the Heart

•{ Just a Call . . .

It was a call. One simple call that lasted no more than two minutes, but had changed everything.

She leaned against the wall with her phone in her hand. Every now and then she would turn it up to look at the screen. Maybe she hadn’t heard what she had. Maybe it was all a delusional conversation from an overworked mind.

It wasn’t.

No matter how she tried to deny the reality, some times things were finite. What was she suppose to do now? She had traveled all this way . . .

•{ Rooftop Signs . . .

There was something about rooftops – it was one of the places she always found herself going when she needed to breathe. For up here she could see the city and things seemed ‘quite’ in their own way. When she was high up everything below was smaller, even her problems which were ‘down there’ didn’t seem to matter.

It was a particularly bright day today so she sat back along the bigger vents and rested in their shadows. Traces of the sun’s rays hit her, but that was okay. Everything was perfect up here. On the rooftop.

•{ Our lives could change. . .

The clock struck. It was another hour into the night and the sky was growing darker. She stepped out on her balcony and adjusted the fur shawl on her shoulders while looking out to the cityscape around her. It was a warm night for this time of year and it left the sky slightly overcast. It was, in many ways, a lovely night. Too bad she wasn’t able to enjoy it for what it was.

All Pretty like the sun, you burn it up, you burn me up
All ashes I become, I’m all swept up
All spaces in between, you fill me up, you fill me up
And as the night falls low, away we go.

She checked her phone for the third time tonight to see if there was a reply to the message she had sent the other day. Of course there wasn’t. There wouldn’t be. She shouldn’t expect there to be and yet . . she did. He said he would meet her tonight and, despite everything, she choose to believe it. That was a couple days ago. There hasn’t been a word from him since. With a sigh she leaned against the balcony doors.

All pretty like the scars, we both have ours, its who we are
Oh show me everything, where your going, where you been
All time its not too late, I’m standing here, the world can wait
And as the night falls low, away we go . . .

What she didn’t know was that he was there. At the time he had told her he would arrive at her place. But he wasn’t at her place. Not really. He was across the street at the park, leaning half hidden behind a lamppost. From there he could look straight up to her window. He saw her looking for him. Perhaps he was a coward and maybe even a bigger fool for hiding out after he had been the one to set up the meeting.

His phone vibrated in his hand and it was her. Of course it was her. “You gave me everything you had, “ he said to himself as he watched the phone ring. “Gave me your life, I couldn’t give you my heart. You said our lives could change.” It stopped ringing and he slipped the phone in his pocket, turned and walked away. “But our lives can’t change.”

(Inspired by the song, “Pretty like the sun” by Prime Circle)

•{ Pretty Can’t See . . .

And he said, ‘Pretty Baby you’re so special to me. With my eyes how I wish you could see, the visage of your majesty. Pretty Baby please come onto me. Can’t you see it’s our destiny.”

Words like honey with a touch that was warm, can cloud the mind like a mid-summer storm.

Striving to see with eyes that aren’t yours. The failure of it keeps making you unsure. And every day he’s there knocking on your door saying, “Pretty Baby, you’re more beautiful than before.”

So you close you eyes, you’re blind and cannot see through the many layers of past insecurity. Knowing deep down that it could never be that the ‘Pretty Baby’ he speaks of is me . . .

•{ . . . Metro Thoughts

He had a long way to go yet, to get to where he wanted. Always feeling like he was coming from the wrong side of the tracks, trying to slip into the high society lifestyle. It was going to take some work – a lot of work – for him to reach the goals he set.

An exasperated sigh left his lips as he leaned back to the steel fence that outlined the subway. Right now the day was quiet, a few people passed by here and there, but that was because the station didn’t open for a couple hours yet. He had arrived early in hopes that it would spark motivation. He gave a pat to the bag which hung off his shoulder. Its contents were his motivation.

His eyes followed the steps down and he tired to peer into the darkness. He was going to be the first in the station and arrive to work before everyone else, and work harder than everyone else. One day his dreams will not be dreams anymore.
