REACTION PAPER OF DESIRE
“ Lust over Love ” – those three words comes out in my mind after reading this short story. Do woman always be the one to blame for man’s temptation for their body? People says that Man, could not be tempted when no one’s tempting them, so it is a woman’s fault when every single men shows some desire? Does love can be measured by the physical appearance of a woman’s face or her beautiful body? Love? What really is it? In this short story entitled “DESIRE” by Paz Latorena was a touching one, specially to women who feels the same way of being disgusted by man who do not have a beautiful face that every man would ever wanted. This story was all about a woman’s hope, believe and patience. Honestly speaking, I myself could relate to this kind of story well, everyone atleast dream of a man that could love them for who they are for what they have and not for having such beauty, a pretty face, a perfect body. The woman in the story was longing for love, to be loved by everyone for what she is. Being homely, is quite a bother to every woman, it feels like they are some trash that everyone should avoid and laugh at, all she ever wanted was a man that could accept her imperfection, she believes that there this someone who could accept it, assuming that not every man that she meet was like him, his hero, her true love. And then, she needs to hide herself, her body that every man she meet look at it with their eyes full of desires. Now, she succeeds, no one even wanted to take a glimpse at her. As a woman I was on her side for planning to hide her body, why, it is because she’s hoping that someone could love her for not having such body. And then, she felt lonelier that no one could really accept her and then on she turned into writting. Well, ofcourse no one ever wanted to be with her and I must say that no one tried to approach her even befriends with her that’s why she just exppress her feelings in writting love letters, poems...
