“G” as in… ?

Friday, April 8, 2011

My Dearest Love,

Please explain to me what went wrong? What twisted time warp kept us miles apart, and yet stranded in the same room? What laws did we break that cast you into that darkened cell? Oh the questions my heart does ask, my love. Can I tell you how my pillows are now stained with tears?

Yes, silent, alone tears I have shed for you, in a darkness that hides ones shame. I did not mean to stand distant, I did not mean to build this wall and I never meant to turn my back on you. Oh please my love, say there is still a chance for us.

For every night, I replay the memory of soul melting rendezvous. Your heavy, sculpted body always tucked so perfectly into mine. In my fingertips I can recall a tender caress and my arms ache at the absence of your solidity. Oh please my love, tell me your heart craves for what we have lost?

In rhythmic sobs my heart does weep for you and our separation creates an emptiness I cannot fill.  So please my love, can I free you from that darken cell? Can once again we feel the melting of our souls and you allow my fingertips a stolen tender caress? Please fill the void, relieve this aching in my arms.

I’ll be waiting my love, just across the room, with a black leather strap and a long black cord.

Forever yours, my love, forever yours.

And my true love… my true Love?

Ah yes, my Gibson Guitar. Did you really think I had forgotten the letter “G”?!

A reminder: I post Monday, Wednesday & Friday and I have to do my taxes at some point.

LOL I thought the surprise ending was the "black leather strap". (Must get mind out of gutter.) So, this little piece gave me a double-take. Can you play Tax Man?

Wonderful Jules I did wonder what you were writing about until the end, I was gooing to writing about a "G string" but resisted the temptation..

:D this was GREAT! love the duality to everything you wrote, and the misleading! the leather strap and long black cord would have been really kinky though if your love was a person! :P
g-reat post!

Gotta give credit to Gibby! And good luck on your taxes.

So funny. but really, G could have stood for a guys name, though I knew there'd be a twist at the end. George the Gignatore. LOL

I get it; you gushing over Gibson. I have a Gibson, too~ I need new strings, so I can tenderly woo him with a love song! YOU are funny~

Ann said, 

Oh Jules, you had me going there. I want to pinch you!!! Before I realized you were lamenting your guitar I had a pull yourself together girl comment forming in my head. But now all I can say is I fell for your loss!

Taxes....don't you hate them!

Loved this! The black leather strap had me running down the wrong road, LOL. Great twist!!

Happy weekend, Jules!

This is awesome and you play guitar I take it? Ummm, you never told us...you are a mighty talented lady~
I am really impressed...one of my goals before I die is to learn to play; do you think I'll make it?
Have an awesome day and taxes? truly over-rated!

I was sure you had forgotten about "G" But what a nice surprise when I got to the end and there is was in all its glory! Have a great Friday my friend!

Giggling over your Gibson post, and gasping that you haven't gone and done your taxes yet! :o) Happy Friday! :o)

Love it! I don't play guitar but my significant other does. Since he has a Gibson, I know he'd appreciate this post.

Very tricky, you little devil.
You're just doing your taxes? tck tck

Oh the beautiful music the two of you would make if you set laid post down as a song!- G

When I started reading this, it had a little troubled look.
But after having read it, I am convinced that this place has no room for sad posts. :)

Nice one!!

I had wondered what the twist would be this time! :)

Good luck with your taxes.

Sweet. That is an awesome Gibson. Great G post.

Tammy said, 

Even though I've learned you are not exactly a literal person, I had no idea where you were going with this one. So the surprise was that much better. "G" is also for "Great!"

My whole family would frame your post. They all play Gibsons. Very clever.

Excellent example of personification, really gave the guitar character - of course, if it were me, the guitar would be quivering with fear. How many innocent instruments have to suffer before I learn...

When I read 'black leather strap and long black cord' I began to wonder what kind of creative endeavors you got up to, LOL!!!!!

Nah, I knew you had some twist coming, but I didn't thing of a Gibson. Can you play? I'm so jealous!

Very clever!

awesome. I can totally relate! I love my guitar as well (thought it's not as cool as your gibson)and I wish I could spend more time with it. Sigh. But writing always comes first.:P

Jeanne said, 

This was very well done, keeping us in the dark till you revealed the Gibson. We had a family member over last night who is a singer and he brought his guitar and his wife commented that he would forget her before he forgot his guitar. Reminded me of this. Cute! Well done!

I was all ready to share my condolences, and you got me thinking about an ex who had is own guitar... G is for Good One!

Ah, Glorious Gibson! It's never too late to rekindle that one. Look how Gorgeous he is! Go, pluck his strings! ;)

Ah, a Gibson guitar- what a gorgeous instrument. Your love letter was beautiful and so very passionate. I know this is true love. :)

I was wondering where the G was going to come into this love letter. Now I know it was Gibson. In college, I used to work in a music store where we sold Gibsons. It would've been hard for you remain exclusive.

I, too, was wondering what happened to "G". Well done!

You slay me, Jules. FYI: When I was in NY I went to the MET, where there is a special exhibition of "Guitars through the Ages," or something like that. It, um, rocked...

You know, it would be more "depressing" if it weren't an ode to your guitar :) Nice G.

I always enjoy wondering what "it" is, in these posts... :) If I were more creative, I'd write something for others to wonder what the "it" is, too. :O
