Bouldered Love

By Homer Simpson!
Your husband walks out on you in the middle of the road, your kids are at home wondering where on earth is their mother. The car is dangerously low on petrol and you don't care because you're shit-tired of life.

The chamber was dreadfully hot, and the quilt comforter was ignored in a crumpled heap miles away on the deck having been forcefully thrown. The fat carpeting on the floor seemed needless. Lisa imagined that each fibrous molecule of the dull brown matting trapped the heat leftover from the sunny afternoon. Heat that now radiates silently, suffocatingly into the box of a hotel room. This shouldn't be happening, thought Lisa. This room is air-conditioned; even the excruciatingly low-priced two-star hotels have air-conditioning, or at least some adequate and satisfactory form of ventilation. She said- "I am in this brand-new, lavish five-star, paying hefty grands a night in their cheapest room because the lounge area has an impressive collection of paintings and there's a cafeteria with a chimerical name".

The real heat was probably from the blood gushing through her veins. She was twenty-seven years old and trapped in a nightmare, between two shores, between a husband who belittled her over nothing and herself. She began to believe in the fact that the man she loved would never accord her the respect and love she deserved, but still expects her to forgive him the morning after.The house had become a brewing cauldron of tension.

Giving up all thoughts of sleep, Lisa sat up on bed and gave the room a gaze-over. Although the commodities were basic, as far as interior decor went it was flawless. Sprinkling of luxuries here and there, coupled with the apple-green walls made it stand apart from the monotonous theme of most hotel rooms. There was a dress-table with a slightly unqualified looking-glass, a small study with a sleek pen and a writing pad as well as the usual tourist guides, and a wrought-iron balcony after the glass panel overlooking the city. There was also a statue. A staggering white marble statue that had been carved in the ultra-pragmatic likeness of a handsome nude youth that had just reached manhood.

She forced herself to believe that there could be none better that him. To a connoisseur of classical sculpture it would have been deemed anatomically perfect, the languid beauty, a tad Romantic. But lacked originality except for the brow, which held a fierce indescribable emotion, even if the eye beneath it was blank and pupil-less. The colossal statue was staring right into her face. Colossal not in size but in the beauty it held. To Lisa, her seven-year-old sons pencil squiggles made more sense, it was another of those life-size monstrosities that were blatantly carved and put on places to remind humanity of its anatomical stains. The statue stood there and either the ambiance or the marble gave it a shade of pink. It gave the statue a lifelike aura; in the soft tungsten light it challenged the appearance of skin. The artist had paid such immaculate attention to each detail that the embossed circles on the chest were actually hued a darker shade. Its body was stark masculine and then there was something feminine about the softness of the drooping shoulder, a languor that couldn't be possibly achieved by an indifferent artistic soul. Lisa's observation which was excellent when it came to directions, but nonexistent in most artistic things, made her move into a keen ease. Perhaps this was the light-headedness that came after a gust of anger. Perhaps her rationality was simply at its lowest. Other matters blurred into inconsequence. This naked thing, this captivating hedonistic obscenity stood there in all its majesty and egoistically demanded her attention. Void of absolute conscience and a statue is now controlling your senses. The bloody thing can go fuck itself Lisa said.

It had just started raining outside. Tomorrow again would be an obscenely hot affair, and once again the fact that the universe was against her would make itself audaciously pronounced.
Lisa did not care. She was decisively unconscious, not peacefully adrift in slumber or blissfully conked out, not asleep but just unconscious and propped against the two pillows stacked on top of each other. Her mouth was slightly open and there was a layer of sweat on her skin that was evaporating with the sad air-conditioning. For two hours it seemed that her soul was temporarily missing, and this body wrapped in a Chelsea FC T-shirt and Pj's was far away from being existent.

Then she bolted up. The soul was back, but lost, confounded, and raw. Like a woman half-lost and half possessed, she moved across the room to the sculpture. The more she looked at it through glazed eyes, the more flesh-like it became. The more real it said it was. The circles on the chest were darker than ever, not stiff marble but hard flesh, and the blank pupil-less eyes were burning as feverishly as her skin.

Lisa got close enough for the blushing halo to brush against her breasts. She suddenly drew herself back. She took out a hand to slap the dexterous statue. It did not retaliate. Did not even flinch. Of course it cant. Its a statue! She liked it. This realization hit her. You're a moronic statue and you're helpless and defenseless! Thwack. Thwack. Another slap. It swayed with the impact, but not enough to topple. All the frustrations came pouring out. When her palms began to sting, she threw herself at the graceful halo, then watched in horror as one arm, the left one that was held at an angle with the fingers brushing the cheek, broke off. It fell with a thump to the carpet where the hand came off, scattering powdery bits of marble at her feet.

Taken aback she said "Oh my God!! What have I done? I'm so sorry! So sorry! I really am."

Shut up, woman. Who are you apologizing to?

She raised her eyes to the statue again. Missing an arm, it suddenly looked more pregnable, less arrogant. Through her wide-eyed stare, the whole appearance of the young man was whimsical. The lips were now luscious. The fingers of the intact arm did not look frozen. In the midst of movement she almost wished it would move. So that she could clasp it and take comfort from it. Comfort she needed so badly. Sobbing, she clung to the statue and willed the cold stone to become more yielding to her touch. The marble piece on the deck was still lifeless. Still made of stone.

She said -"I'm so sorry. Sorry for being such a silly ass."

Stop apologizing. You are a stupid and ugly soul. Where is your self-respect?

She said-"I just want to be loved."

Suddenly she was overcome with an irrational yearning. If he did not want her, she would make him want her. She tore off her remaining clothes, damp with sweat. Then she pushed herself against him with a thrust. Want me, love me. With another thrust, she had him inside her. She bent her head to the left to meet his lips and sucked hard on them, wanting to make them bleed. The world disappeared slowly. She was joined in union with a stranger. She opened her eyes to see a human face, cheeks afire with blood, mouth open, begging, wanting. She was alive again, alive and in the embrace of a beautiful man, a man who worshiped her and loved her as a woman. She felt him melting in her arms. She felt her hot tears of release on both their faces. Their legs intertwined, moving to that sacred rhythm when the heartbeat drowned out everything.

Lisa springs into an upright position. Everything seemed new, yet was the same. She was a raw hatching reborn in this mess of crumpled sweat-scented sheets on a hotel bed. Nameless. Spent. What the heck had happened?

It was a dream, wasn't it? She hadn't really made love to a statue. That was unthinkable. That was.The ceiling spun in spirals, disorienting her. She squeezed her eyes shut until orange fireflies filled her vision, then opened them again. Her gaze fell to the statue. She said "See? Flawless, looking every bit the same. Isn't it?".

She said to herself: "It was missing an arm. So what? I have been careless before. Marble is delicate. I don't know what a goddamn statue is doing in this tiny room anyhow. What time is it?"

Lisa had to squint and move a few inches back for the blurry needles on the mounted clock to focus. 5AM.

She said -"Ive been asleep for roughly four hours". She had no memory of how she had crawled back to bed after her short-lived hallucination. All she knew was that she needed a cold shower. To wake her up and bring her back to reality.
As the numbing gush of water poured down her back, Lisa had a feeling of being watched. She half-expected to turn around and see the naked marble man peering at her from the door, which she had left open. She actually didn't.

Well, what can it do? It's not much with only one arm. And it knows I'm strong enough to break the other one. Yes, strong enough. Lisa hummed to herself the lines of her favorite song as she showered, imagined she was being watched by a mysterious voyeur. Her hands became the hands of a lover, exploring the curves of her body, curves she forgot she had. After more than ten years, she felt her femininity coming out in warm, dark pink bursts. Femininity which graced her face. She almost sobbed at the release, but chose to smile instead. The ice-cold droplets ran down her breasts.

Come to me and grace the water drops with your sunshine.

The air was empty, yearning

Come and play and splash and love

Something stirred alive

Look at me the way I want you to.

She felt him coming

I want you with me. Come fulfill me.

A feeling of apprehension seeped into her whispering heart, strengthening into anticipation.

Look at me the way I want you to.

Inanity, except for the lonely sound of the shower.

Come love me again..again like never before.

Then she felt him behind her, the lone arm on her shoulder.She smiled and closed her eyes.

    Where did this post start and where did it end?

    Loved that it was from a woman's point of view...It had me gripped from the beginning to the end!!! Brilliant!

    @ rashi:

    I know. The first line was somewhere in the middle of the piece. But then I thought that Its better if it is written right at the beginning.

    I know. Writing from a woman's point of view wasn't really easy specially after people felt that it wasn't up to the mark in the previous post. I'm glad that you like it :)

    Thanks for reading.
  22. WeirdISgooD2 July 29, 2008 at 5:32 PM
    Cherry, i loved the post!

    Somehow you made the statue the protagonist ...very impressive!

    I dunno though..maybe you should shorten the story a bit..you know..sort of hone it.

    Matter of opinion though...anyways..once you get past the beginning the story really grips you.
  23. creation July 29, 2008 at 5:43 PM
    brilliant is an understatement for this..
    its a classic master-piece..

    though not quite romantic... i wud term it as passionate!

    keep posting.. uve got a fan!
    cheers!

    I am glad that you like it. But you know what even if I try I cannot shorten the post. I myself am not fond of long posts. But then I really cannot think of editing any line :(

    Cheers!
  26. Comfortably Numb July 30, 2008 at 1:57 PM
    @ creation: Thanks a lot for liking it. I really don't know if I tried to make it romantic. Its just the complexity of the mind. And how the human mind can fold up under the thirst of love :)

    Cheers!
  27. Comfortably Numb July 30, 2008 at 1:59 PM
    @dame folle: I know. It took me the longest to compose this post than any other of my posts. Well, I really don't know where it came from. I just wanted to write some fiction ;)

    I created the header image using photoshop and illustrator..


    Well getting ur initial at the bottom of ur post is pretty simple.Just write ur initial on a piece of paper, next take a snap or scan the page, convert it into 300 by 400 resolution image, simply insert the photo while u post and align it left and at the bottom, u can further scale it down according to ur requirement!!

    Hope it'll help ur cause a bit!!

    You take pride in writing, and you work it pretty well.
    You're one of the few people whose writing I honestly admire.
    Will wait for the next.
    You take time on your blog posts, but i guess all good things need time.
    Kudos dude, treat yourself for a job well done!
  40. Anindita August 2, 2008 at 12:19 AM
    Errr... That was confusing... Dunno why... But your narration is excellent... And you have captured emotions very well... But something, somehow is not making complete sense... Maybe I need to read this again...

  53. .a. August 2, 2008 at 9:59 PM
    alright, I read it twice, you know why I always do so!

    The starting was nice, very nice to creat a clear picture of whats going on, and why is it going on 'because you're shit tired of life'

    I like the idea of carpets trapping heat from sun rays, they trap a lot other things too, love, emotions and memories!

    'trapped in a nightmare' :)
    women do expect respect, I have already said that earlier and I am saying again, I wonder at you ability to write the women side of the story where womenly emotions remain intact, generally men's women in the story are manly, yours is tender I am a fan of your observation..

    I love apple-green shade of the room, I have to decide a color for my room, I think it better be apple green :)

    of course I loved the fact that the table bore the sleek pen and a writing pad!

    Its nice how the totally riddiculas thing for her turned out to be the most important phenomenon of her life 'To Lisa, her seven-year-old sons pencil squiggles made more sense'

    its awesome.. 'You're a moronic statue and you're helpless and defenseless' lol! i like accusings, i like when we want to pour our frustrations on things, its magical and it has voices, of breaking, crashing, I loved it when its arm fell off! so cruel, so Humane! ;)

    Immaculate details of the artist there and Immaculate details of everything by you here.

    It was wild, very very very wild.. I like imaginations and talking to myself loudly, I have had imaginary friends (once, now dont laugh) and I swear I almost felt them! but this is still wild...

    I loved it :)

    Asbah!

  69. Sandeep Balan August 5, 2008 at 8:17 PM
    @kushal

    abhe choteeeee...tu toh bond ho gaya hain re...after showering of praises last time, this time sat down to dissect ur story. But chote, seriously not a single flaw. You build up the background without breaking into sweat. Its so smooth that you actually go on reading.

    You started off on such a strong note with, "Your husband walks out on you in the middle of the road, your kids are at home wondering where on earth is their mother. The car is dangerously low on petrol and you don't care because you're shit-tired of life."...i was fooled into beleiving that this would be another of the rebel posts. You very cleverly hide the things which are to follow...that things are about to take a turn which no one wud guess in his/her wildest dreams...


    You have created an almost perfect background for Lisa with this single line, "trapped in a nightmare, between two shores, between a husband who belittled her over nothing and herself"...this perfectly sets the tone for whatever she does towards the later part of this post...a pat on the back for getting it bang on! I would have liked some more description on Lisa. The line mentioned above is powerful, no doubt about that. But you have tried to shift the focus from the lady Lisa is to the surroundings. A couple of more lines on Lisa's suffering/trauma could have been highlighted which would have brought the readers to feel for Lisa. Thats a fiction writers greatest achievement. If readers feel for his character. I missed feeling Lisa's pangs!

    "The house had become a brewing cauldron of tension"...another gem...

    "Their legs intertwined, moving to that sacred rhythm when the heartbeat drowned out everything."...There you go! The thing that was missing at the start is addressed here...and addressed well. I felt every single moment. Really great description bro...I wanted the same stuff for Lisa's description. I would say that your strength is the romantic encounters. You are a master when it comes to that! And your mastery is on full display here!

    Great attempt bro...again..waiting for the next! cheers! and hey...am no master choteeeee...only ur bichdaa huva bhai...tune romance main PhD kee...maine humour main...itna hi farak hain..he he!! cheers!!

    @sandeep aka Bade bhaiya

    You sound like asbah in your comment :P. In depth analysis. Thanks a lot for reading and for such a lovely and encouraging feedback.

    I know you feel that I should have described Lisa a bit more..but then...

    a. It would have made it even a longer post. And I felt that it would made it less interesting.

    b. Although this post revolves around Lisa but still I always tried to make it a post where in Lisa was dominant in the former part of the story and gradually it moved to the statue and finally it took a convincing position in the story. That's just my take on it though :P

    Thanks again :)

    Cheers!

    @sandeep aka bade bhaiya

    I know. But then I feel that posting fiction or for that matter anything in parts is murdering of continuity and thrill :P

    And yes Asbah aka Rampyari is for sure one of us :P

    Cheers!!

    http://www.shipwrecklagoon.blogspot.com/

    Do you update weekly or is it random ??

    Your wish. You can call me anything you feel like :) It's not that I don't like it but sounds a bit errr..whatever :P

    Oh yes I remember commenting on your blog and the reason I said that it has the word cherry was that my blog title also has that :P

    What are you talking about? updating my blog or updating my name?

    If you are talking about my blog..its just that I post/update whenever I am ready with something and usually it takes like 1-2 weeks :P

    Thanks for reading :)

    A passionate narrative and very impressive. I almost hoped for Lisa that the statue was a real young man or would turn into one for her sake...well i guess it means your writing was effective :-)

    btw, like your other posts too....especially "The Crush". Keep writing.

    cheers!
