 "You refused to satisfy my eager longing; on the contrary, you increased it by the obstinate refusals of an alarmed modesty."   

 

 

seemingly contradictory

to be shocked/ excited  while also

subtle/ shy 

 

untamed hair,  covering half her face

leaning next to a stairway 

bare legs, crossed one in front of each other 

 

she didn't say a single word

her mouth half open

biting the side of a lower lip 

 

arms across the front of her chest

robe wrapped tight,  

holding herself in/  or back

 

 

 

 

 

 

 



- Charles de Secondat, Baron de Montesquieu
