Read to me,
she said.

Read to me of love.

Read to me of a knight in shining armor
saving a damsel in distress from the wicked giant.
Read to me of a woman saving a man from the loneliness of being in a city and not finding anyone to talk with.
Read to me of a man and a man, or a woman and a woman, walking hand in hand in a park and nobody calls them perverted.
Read to me of two people falling in love after divorcing their spouses and spending date after date with people who were wrong for them.
Read to me of two people without perfect bodies who have sex that isn’t Mount-Vesuvius intense, but brings them much comfort and pleasure.
Read to me of fantasies and realities in which love gets bashed down by greedy, selfish forces — but then the love gains strength, pushes back, and wins in the end.

Read to me of love,
she said.

Because the news has so much pain
and I need to hear something to lift me up.

  6. Yes, love wins in the end. We need to read of (and make love?) more often, so as to negate the darkness that is trying to spread in the world. We need o focus our energies towards the light, the one that will pierce the darkness and being peace to all of us.
    I loved this. Thank you.

      • I realised re-reading the comment that it’s full of typos… it was supposed to be *bring* not *being* for one. I apologise for that.
        Yes, spreading love is all we can do to make the world a better place 🙂
        And you’re welcome. It’s not my fault is your text was so powerful it brought out this reaction 😉
