thoughts from my mind to yours

Parting

22 Comments

And then you felt it,

the sweet ache of Parting…

and you held on to the memories a little closer,

Like draping a blanket of comfort on your heart,

until you met again…

  6. “the sweet ache of Parting” is a lovely metaphor, Neha, where both “sweet” and “ache” are initially contradictory terms. Such contradiction in human nature is Parting, bittersweet, and how difficult it is for any of us to learn to let go… and to learn not to abuse others.

    I want to share with you a post of an artist-writer who is a great friend of mine, Mario Savioni. He is a far better writer than myself and, like you, an awesome writer. Unfortunately, almost no one pays attention to his blog or sends comments to him. I think Mario’s lines are a fierce defense of feminism understood not as women superiority over men (Jeez, no gender is superior to any other!), but as a manifesto for gender equality and equity criticising the evils of Capitalism as well:

    “She is almost always concerned with how she looks. She engages in meaningless banter with her best friends in open-air venues, and she never quite connects with his eyes but expects him to see her and to engage her and this is all that is going on against the backdrop of capitalism, a male construct, supported by women to rise above other men by enslaving them too, to keep tabs on their growth and competitiveness.

    No, if women want to be free, they have to fight this greed and fear. The sense of scarcity causes men to take what does not belong to them. They have nothing else but the occasional stray broken from some relationship that revealed dependency and thus ugly truth.”
