Losing the Signified

leave a comment »

Sometimes with an incline of the head, one searches for a feeling, rifling the heart, hunting the book of our emotions for a word, a name that used to set the heart ablaze with longing and passion.

But it is no longer there, the word erased, wiped clean from the slate of affection. To no surprise. And no sadness. Make no mistake it is not forgotten. But this name whose tie to feeling is severed, is nothing more now but a stranger’s.

Archiving this post here from the teacher blog. It is out of place there.
