The sweet little x

There was a time when you would seal your whispered confessions, the passionate words of your lust, your farewells and goodbyes with a kiss, with a cross, with a sweet little x.

But once it disappeared from sight, once that sweet little x ceased to be, I knew things had changed; I knew we would never be the same. I knew the hint of affection you cradled tentatively in your palm had been lost, had faded forever away.

It's funny how we can tell, even in a purely textual context, what people are feeling. Visual cues are important but not always necessary.

I'm sorry for your loss. I hope that, despite what I just said, it's a miscommunication.

Every time I eXamine your posts, I feel a surge of eXcitement. Your commentary is also eXquisite.

Kidding aside, VL is right, sometimes the biggest clues to the trouble in a relationship are the smallest ones.

Cheers,
Octavia

Verbose Lothario: Alas, it isn't a miscommunication but rather an omission that asserted its presence for some time. But this too will pass. Thank you for the comforting words and concern, VL - they soothe my soul and heart.

Octavia: I couldn't agree with you (and VL) more - the small signs and gestures speak volumes about the state of things. And even though his have faded away, yours have brought a big ole goofy smile to me face!

I'm so sorry, Minx.

Cheeky Minx said...

stareintotheabyss: Thank you so much, JK. But I am all right. I think this was a case of sending the thought into the ether in order to move on.

True, lust may not last forever, but that doesn't make the loss any less tragic.

Cheeky Minx said...

therittenbergreport: You're so right - and touchingly thoughtful. Thank you...

Poetically touching, whether it be love or lust the sting hurts. Be well Minx

You have such a way with words. I know, all too well, the hurt realization that something special is gone. I hope the feeling is fleeting for you.
