Down the drain

I was taking a shower this evening after coming home from a late night swim at the gym. Gliding across my skin the dove soap bar cupped in the palm of my right hand, up my arms across my breasts, down my belly into my groin and stretching along my legs to my toes. Every spot carefully touched whisking away any residue of chlorine the pool water had left. I was soapy, smooth and bent down to admire my feet all pretty in their new french polished pedicure.

Ahhhh how nice to have pulsating warm water trickling down my back, I must have turned my head too suddenly and the perfect 4 millimeter off white pearl earring in my right lobe came loose, tumbling down with the water within seconds I watched as it was swept away by the flowing water.....down swirling into the drain.

Metaphorically I stood disbelieving that my perfect little precious pearls could be separated and one lost to the abyss of Barnegat's sewer system. But it was a fact and then a rush of memories came over me reminding of the time when I received these earrings as a gift from my husband. I wanted to laugh and cry at the same time.

These mementos where given many years ago by a then loving husband. Though the gift themselves not lavish by any stretch of the imagination they were perfect little round orbs with such luster and purchased without prompt by him. One of the few gifts I've received from him that was personal and treasured. How symbolic that these now get broken apart as my marriage did, one being claimed by the garbage system and the other still remaining in my little lobe of my left ear.

A flood of emotion came over me and I shook my head...ahhhh I should have expected this. Another latent message from the powers that be. Never to be returned again my little pearl as my marriage or even friendship with my now ex husband.

With that epiphany I grabbed my joy toys, began loosing myself to the liquid cascading down my back, smiled a wicked grin and began celebrating the loss yet the freedom. My zones came alive and a methodical rhythm of pulses washing through out my inner cavern. Cleansing me, nourishing me and pleasuring all in tandem while I shuddered from the climax. How apropos I came while celebrating my perfect pearl. They are rare and beautiful mishaps of nature generated by a speck of sand, placed purposely into the cavity of the mollusk. A Clam...yes my dears the ultimate clitoris and as I finished with more oozing of warm mucous from my little clam shell of a pussy I saluted that pearl and said "Syonara" to all those memories.......

My compliments....

When I first started reading this, I thought that it was going to relate to a sad incident about losing the earring, but I was happily proven wrong.

How wonderful that you could look at it from such a profound viewpoint...

And yes, I am human (despite what you may have heard)...I would have loved to see you 'losing' yourself in the shower...or better yet, helping you to lose yourself...and then bringing you back again....

Again, my compliments, dear lady....

I could install my web-cam in the shower, that might get some attention....but I'm not an exhibitionist. Just a woman wanting to make sense of all the confusion.

Thanks for the compliments NG who says you're not human? Send them to me, I'll set them straight!

I'm with Valley. Really beautiful, symbolic.

I guess if we look hard enough there is symbolism all around us. We have to open our eyes to see it.

TM Two which may at first seem dichotomies but, but as in your post, what at first appears one way may be something very different.

You can't separate peace from freedom because no one can be at peace unless he has his freedom. Malcolm X

Freedom is just Chaos, with better lighting. A D Foster

The beautiful imagery in your post epitomizes the peace that may come out of orgasmic chaos.

Love the imagery and the unexpected ending. Instead of poignant and sad, you deliver poignancy and celebration. A very need trick indeed. I envy your ability to relate the separation of earrings back to a very real time of loss, and then back to the freedom that we experience with the "closing of one door."

Keep on writing...

Since I began blogging I often times make a mental note with each new and different experience. Whether it be something as mundane as taking out the garbage or anticipation of straddling a new lover.

If I write what I feel it helps to pave the way towards enlightenment and clarity.

Still haven't mastered the "closing of the door" yet...any suggestions on how to do this other then erasing my memory?

Very nice. However, I bet it would still be nice to get that pearl back now that you have experienced the experience.

PS- next time take your jewelry off before showering.

PSS- Do you actually wear jewelry while swimming at the "Y"?

rm_tennismaiden replies on 6/17/2006 8:14 am:
I do leave some basic jewelry on, a pair of earrings and necklace. However usually my earrings have tight backs and I never loose them, I think that night there was a reason my earring became dislodged. I'm not so sure I want to check the catch though....we'll see, could be yuckier then I care to deal with.

Your handle...are you an attorney? Kind of cool handle, kudos!

You know, I had a very expensive pair of diamond earrings that my ex gave me. I couldn't stand to wear them, but they were so valuable ... One day, I walked into a church that was collecting for a disaster relief fund (I'm not at all religious, never been in that church before) and found the priest or pastor or what ever he was, and told him what they were and gave them to him.

Walked out of that place several thousand dollars poorer, whistling and bouncy and smiling! It was as though one more hold on me had disappeared.

Worked for 3 years as a maintenance tech.. Have gotten out rings and othet jewlry from drains because they often do not go past the ptrap. Stick a wet dry vac down the drain to the ptrap and you just might get back that pearl.

I'm sure it's a loss of a "momento" TM, but, as you stated, a cleansing too

Nice finish to the story (and shower) too
