two-faced god

Woman: You’re never available, and yet you know I need you… on some perennial, all the time type…

Man: But you know the reasons… my work, the movement, and all the rest. At least I visit every other season

Woman: If only that were true, you come here in the fall, when your wife is away, otherwise you don’t come at all. You were last here in January, as if my home is Janus’ temple, open only in time of war

Man: Still you let me… and I take it not only because you love my strokes, but because you understand my life, my goals…. I know you see my vision… the diamonds, the gold

Woman: Just stop!

Man: I know I’ve failed you many times but please, give me one more chance… let me rekindle your desire!

Woman: No! Go! I’m done playing with fire. My temple is closed; you two-faced god!

    Great dialogue – and it definitely packs a punch. And, in my opinion, he definitely deserves to be turned away. Wonderful final sentence! 🙂


  6. A playwright you may become! Awesome!

    Pretty sweet, t’was cool how you led up to the “two-faced god”. However to be honest, why the term god? I know it sounds pretty sweet all together, but how is he a god?

    Hi Heath. I loved your two-faced god post! 🙂 As for me being the dialogue queen… I’m still working on things. I suppose we writers are never completely satisfied with our own work, are we? Thank you for the inspiring comment, though. 🙂

    thank you very much ahbengo 🙂

    maybe she didn’t want to say dog so she reversed it, or she was referencing Janus, or both, only she truly knows Short Scare 🙂

    interesting observation, chronicler. thanks 🙂

    awww, thanks MissFit 🙂


  19. I of July says:

    satisfaction implies some sort of ending, I think… and we’re never done, so you’re right 🙂

    I know, I always think I should do better. But I’m very self-critical in everything I do. Perhaps I should try to like myself more! haha. 🙂
