Modern Love: How to Court a Lady

Know her. Know her by the swagger in her walk, by the delicacy of her voice, the timbre of it, the quality of her drink order, and the shininess of her crown jewels. Know these things–know her like no one else does.

Listen to the quaver in her voice, the pauses and the sighs, the exclamations and oscillations. Listen to the stutter-step of her heart, to the whispers she doesn’t say, to the sentiments behind the words, the hurts behind the sentences. Listen to the ellipses and the punctuated groans. Listen and keep quiet.

Hold her hand. Ask her opinion. Indulge in her innermost thoughts. Give yours. Divulge honesty–keep her secrets. Cherish her body; exalt her soul. Love. Love yourself.

Love her more.

Raison d’etre

"Raw," she said. "I want something primal. I want something bare and naked. I want you to give me this life raw, unbidden, unhidden, free, fair, and true. Can you do that? Can you do that for me?"

One may only try.
