Highlights of a Love Affair

A True Story

 I walked into Zion's Bank to talk to somebody about refinancing; the lines were long so I had quite a wait. While waiting in line I couldn't help noticing a new girl behind one of the desks. My God she was enchanting. I couldn't help staring at her, she had me mesmerized, every once in a while she'd catch me watching her and I'd have to look away in embarrassment.

I don't know how to describe it but everything about her had me caught in a magic spell, her engaging smiled, her every delightful movement, the musical splendor of her voice and most of all her extraordinary beauty.

When I reached the end of the line she beckoned me over to her desk. She was so completely enchanting that I forgot what I'd come to the bank for. When I opened my mouth nothing would come out and finally after regaining control of my vocal cords I mumbled, I came here specially to see you. She laughed and said my names Pingsing and that broke the ice.

We talked for about 30 minutes and it was for sure I'd made a very special friend. I forgot to mentioned the real reason why I'd come to the bank. That would have to be put off until another day.

When I got home all I could think about was her, I wanted to hold her and hug her and kiss her and love her. There is no doubt about it she had captured my heart hook, line and sinker. I was as excited as a little kid under the tree on Christmas morning.

For the rest of the day her lovely face materialized where ever I looked. She was on my TV, my computer, my doors and my walls and the ceiling. She was everywhere I happen to gaze. I was completely enthralled by her presence.

Finally when I came back to my senses I realized that Pingsing could never be more than a friend, after all I was more than twice her age. The only way I could ever have her would be in my dreams and my fantasies‘. But even knowing didn't help because I was burning up with desire. I never felt this way about any other women before and I was married and loved a wonderful woman for 26 years.

That night I couldn't sleep just thinking about her. The more I thought about her the more in love I became. Finally I sat down and put my feelings to rhyme. This is what I wrote and what I felt at the time.

 I Call Her Pingsi

 I met the fairest maiden . . . In a West Valley town.

She was a gleaming orchid. . .in a Godly woven gown

I know I won’t forget her. . .as long as I may live

For she was the fairest flower. . that God could ever give.

Beautiful and lovely. . . and as charming as could be.

I knew I had to have her. . . that she was meant for me.

Her lips were sweet and tender. . and filled my heart with bliss

I knew I had to hold her close. . and I longed for that first kiss.

She was mine for just a moment and she stole my heart away.

Now she’s vanished into nowhere. .Left me in dismay.

How can I live with out her. . .She was right for me

The fairest maiden of them all. .Is now just history.

I know I can’t forget her . . . And it’s plain to see.

That she’ll always be in my heart as a lovely fantasy.

As you can plainly see it was love at first sight you should also know that I was completely blinded by my feelings. After living so many years alone, had love made that magical entry into my lonely life.

If someone loves you,
love them back unconditionally,
not only because they love you,
but because they are teaching you to love
and opening your heart and eyes to things
you would have never seen or felt without them.

From the moment I saw her, to the moment I met her, to the moment I dated her, to the moment I made love to her, they were all moments to remember. She was, is, and will always be the best of the best things that ever happened to me. I cherish all of the wonderful attributes that make her what she is and will always be.

I was comfortable with life as it was; I had the love of my friends, the love of my animals, and the love of my God. What more in life could a man want? I thought I had it all. Oh how wrong I was, you see the love of a good women is the best thing in life that there is. I was always the one to give love and I thought that was the way it should be but to be loved and adored by a very special women is the most wonderful feeling that God gave to man. To be loved for no other reason then love is unconditional and that’s what I had, and that’s what I felt. And the feeling was the most marvelous feeling, in all of the world, the universe and well beyond.

What I had with Pingsi was not just an affair; it was the kind of affair that people have dreamed about since the beginning of time. It fulfilled my ultimate needs and gave me the strength to carry on.

The affair had to end because of the difference in our ages, and I knew that well. Oh how well I knew that! I knew it would be selfish of me to let it continue on. The decision had to be mine and not hers because wisdom comes with age. I also know that her culture respects the wisdom of time.

Only in my dreams can I enjoy the magic of your charms.

Because when I dream you’re right there in my arms

Only in my dreams can I enjoy the magic of your kiss

Because when I dream you belong to one and only me

So when I dream, I dream of you the whole night through

I dream of you, of doing all the things you want me to.

You are mine and I am yours but it is just a fantasy.

It’s only in my dreams and it’s only bliss for me.

LeslieMay commented on Highlights of a Love Affair


Wow. Very powerful. One of life's lovliest encounters. It's so nice when someone comes along & lifts our spirits, even for just a brief time. Memories are to be cherished, they are some of life's greatest treasures.



Pingsing did more than just lift my spirits, she left me on cloud 9.

HarverTomsson commented on Highlights of a Love Affair


"Hey Id, come over here and meet Ego!" said Super-ego commandingly. "Just a minute, when I'm through with my business with Pingsi." "Now!" What a juicy frolic you had that day. Fantasy women have no flaws, nor would we want them to.



Thanks for the comment and please stay out of my fantasies Pingsing is mine.

Poetry is finer and more philosophical than history; for poetry expresses the universal, and history only the particular.
