Once A Stranger

Henry Cassius Dempsey IV, his name was born of old money and although no one called him by his full name, you could feel the reverence in their voices even in its abbreviated form. He enjoyed all that his birthright afforded him. Never knowing the need to struggle in order to make ends meet or feeling a desire to burn unsatisfied, Izzy would often hear him say “I win.” but mind you, it was not a boast nor from gayety did those words spring as if a game had been just played but, from a knowingness, deeply rooted where no wind could unearth this oak of truth.
He sat at his desk, reflecting on the faded broken flower that once was his wife. His frustration and anger as he stood by watching her wallow in self-pity, day after day.
“Damn it! What is wrong with her?
Why doesn’t she just get her ass out of bed, out of that house?
She just needs to stand up and dust her knees off.
She’s always done that before. Never let anything get her down.”
For a moment guilt slithers out from the corner of his mind attempting to make him question his motives… his choices as of late. Quickly he pushes away the serpent, justifying his night in the hotel as a fluke that would never of occurred if Izzy was not so selfish. It was a business trip and when his partners backed out last-minute due to family issues he had no choice but to go and represent the firm, it was his name on the wall after all. Besides, it only made sense that Cheri would still go, being that she was the assistant. What didn’t occur to him was how lonely he had felt over the last few months. Izzy always took care of everything and then all of a sudden she stopped. Wouldn’t pack the kids lunches, wouldn’t change her clothes even. He not only felt lonely but he resented her weakness. Cheri reminded him of Izzy sometimes, when they were younger and had no children that took her attention away from him. The way he would hear her laugh across the hall, a loud, boisterous, full-out laugh, not caring if the other assistances scorned her with their bitter gaze. She was young and beautiful and she knew it.
It was not his fault, a bad situation with too much to drink piled on top that would not happen again. A complete fluke that no one would blame him for and no one had to know about.

Once A Stranger

Izzy opens her eyes, trying to stretch the lids thinking that maybe this will keep them alive as she looks down onto the blurred array of colorful pills. Her breath passes her lips with a moist fleeting sorrow. Waiting patiently for her to swallow each and every capsule, her husband Cash stands at the doorway. Responsible to his very core he would make her breakfast full of fruits and berries, just the way he knew she had once loved. His plea to the doctors to stop her tears and to “fix her” was answered in those little pills.
His charismatic demeanor enhanced by the custom suit she had the arduous task of assembling, only a few months ago, from stacks of two inch swatches.  With the taylor who spoke a broken English and there for offered little help, given the exception of the occasional head nodding and the constant Cheshire cat like grin, Izzy endured until the quality of ensemble matched the exorbitant price he knew she would pay in hopes of an approving response from her husband, short lived as it would be.
“I love you, my beautiful wife.” He told her, trying not to show his anger and disgust but, in vain because her eyes could not see his emotions and her heart could not feel her own.
“Your drugged wife” Izzy replied from her haze
“Yes, but you are still MY wife!”
His words hung in the air as he removed the partially eaten meal and glanced around to double check that she had not forgotten to take the medicine. Although it did not bring back the carefree woman wild with life and a passion he felt he had tamed but, it gave him a certainty she would not leave. Their eyes not meeting for an embrace, he glanced at his phone and realizing the time, pushed back her hair and roughly kissed her forehead.
Izzy began to raise her hand hoping to grasp his arm, wanting that moment to be tender and last…..
just linger one moment with me – Her heart began to swell just slightly at the thought but faded quickly back into the haze as she realized he was no longer there.

I was inspired by my friend Tea with a Pirate to see if I could pull off a Haiku in his honor. He gives me a daily mental workout and for this I’m grateful. Check out his musings at http://managuagunntoday.wordpress.com
Man Empurpled
Hand holds tower erect
Empurple throbs winters peak
Exhale smooth pleasure

This was a challenging word for me (a spelling nightmare for as phonically challenged as I am) to use in my writing style… I do have a style…yes? I tried many ways to use it but the result was a bit bland. This is my go:
The luscious honeyed lips bestowed delicate gossamer kisses along his fingers, tracing the outline of each and every  digit. Her eyes demurely gazing into his, with an effervescent lift at her brow, suggesting what could be a night to remember.
Let me know what you think and come up with on your own?
