    She offered him the best of herself…and he rebuffed her.
    He didn’t explain why – kept it light, kept if “friend” ly
    She died a thousand deaths

  • I reached out my hand to her. She didn’t look at me. She wouldn’t look at me. I lamely pulled it back, flexing my fingers. Okay. We sat in silence for far too long. It was torture.

    The little girl’s brow was furrowed. Her arm shot forward. A little fist. I looked at her in consternation. The fist opened, like a flower. A pine nut.

    He offered her his life for one kiss. She scoffed, “That’s ridiculous. What would I do with your life? My own is hard enough to live.” He laughed, “I can see already you’re going to be a real problem. I was using a metaphor.” She said, “I don’t believe in metaphors. I take everything quite literally. How would you like me to kill you once I kiss…[Read more]

    I hadn’t accepted his offer. I knew it came with strings he wasn’t going to tell me about until the end. I normally don’t mind his strings, but something about the glint in his eye, the tilt of his head, and the blood on his suit told me I might not like these strings. And I don’t like to take those kind of chances.

    It was sweet of her to offer all of this food. She is a generous person.

    He flicked his finger as if to shoo away
    a fly of just a speck of the world
    that landed on his arm at rest. It was
    a small gesture make in a packed room.

    To the people on the otherside with ink
    stained fingers, it meant something
    we will never know, they ran off to call
    and to write. The next day the papers

    all printed something about…[Read more]

  • It didn’t go un-noticed, as he previously thought. That one text was enough to show that she not only recognized, but appreciated this gesture he made for her. That one text was enough to fill him with hope that one day he could make her his wife. All it said was, “You are too much.”

    The ‘Shaka” gesture here in Hawaii means thank you, it means that’s terrific, it means victory, it means the Aloha Spirit. It is three fingers down against one’s palm and the pinky and thumb out in opposite directions, and the hand shaking the delight of the hand’s owner.
    So what can I do when a car passes me on the right, and a well-muscled male…[Read more]

    What a big gesture .. all those drag queens so beautiful and special and also hurt and hurting still . Gestures are so big and none can look behind. They seem so strong and fierce and full of shit and lovable. The gestures are huge. All the way. I wish they weren’t hurting so much. But who knows what would happen to those gestures .. .

    A single hand gesture is a kind one too. What single hand gestures can I do.

    Hghi five! A slap on the hand. A simple gesture. One from our childhood yet it brought great memories as our hands slept into one another as we stopped back/ It was like a time machine. As our fingers touched I was taken back to the summer of 1986.

    New gloves! How every flick of her slender wrist, or curl of one dainty finger, looked just so much more ELEGANT.

    Annabelle didn’t take long in the window’s reflection before turning away. Her scar was as prominent as ever, but today, it itched, which only meant one thing. A woman bumped into her as she spun around and obscenely gestured in her direction, causing what little levity remained in her stride to vanish.

    He kept gesturing frantically, what could be so urgent? She thought finally looking in the direction he was pointing. ‘Oh the dragon is flying away’ she saw.

  • chantemcb commented on the post, gesture 3 days, 6 hours ago

    He gestured wildly to her, yet didn’t say a word. His lips were pursed – partly surprised – and partly disgusted by what he saw: A severed hand emerging from leaf-covered mounds of dirt. Traces of blood splattered across the digits.

    It was her first day as a police officer, and she froze. The training manual was much more clinical than the…[Read more]

    You never know what a single kind gesture can start in someone.

    She widely gestured to the room. “This? This is what you’ve got?”
    He was confused, his eyes scanning over the surfaces, “Um… yes?”
    “Oh, darling, love of my life, bane of my existence,” she sighed.
    He laughed. She said things of this ilk often.

  • A gesture is just that – an acknowledgement in the direction of someone or something that the person making the effort wants to show that they care about – sort of. If they gesture towards any kind of appeasement or real change, then it ceases to be a gesture and starts to be meaningful – this is terribly shitty.
