An unapproachable pair

An unapproachable pair.
Already drunk and he hadn't touched a drop of alcohol. He entered the "a la belle etoile" in an emotional stupor, shadowy sentiment working away at his soul.
Taking his usual seat, rejection glazed his eyes over once more, perceiving everyone in a warped light. Life was about to take its usual toll.
Coated in shades of gray, the laid back crowd frequenting that high-end restaurant would impress most. Melodic jazz numbers played at the edges of perception, smoothly accompanying the focal point of its host.
She sat by an ornate table, her eyes comparable to a frosty winter's morning. With misgiving they drifted over him. He perceived an emotionless attribute to them, tenaciously withholding some secret she carried.
Her seemingly flawless aspect inspired, sheathed as she was in such affluent couture. She turned to her partner.
The unapproachable aura enclosing them began to have a reverent effect on him.
Opposite her and rather relaxed sat a man with a jaded bearing. He gave the impression he'd seen it all in this often disconcerting life. His was a charismatic face, with many of his touching experiences scored into its surface by stately lines. The manner in which he sniffed and sipped a tumbler of wine revealed a worldly opulence lying beneath those wrinkles.
As their word play continued her partner unraveled the playful secrecy this woman presented him.
And so they aimlessly tested themselves with pleasure and got enjoyment out of it.
Jealousy kindled within as he watched his mastery with her. This scene was reminiscent of some locksmith yet again unlocking a treasure chest continuously denied him.
So for a few moments he took it in; the lady he could never have, the man he thought had it all.
After observing them perennially, on a television, in a novel, the rare trip to a restaurant, different faces, always the same archetypical couple in distorted light; he was thankfully shown this too is futile.
Years passed as he was steadily restored to wholeness; his identity attached to reality, causing him to realize he's already the fullness of God.
Seeing clearly he knew beneath the pageantry of these people lay a void they sought to fill with carnality. His heart went out to them now, not with the adulation of old but with unconditional love instead, a love that'd healed his own brokenness.
In Jesus is life, and that life is the light of humanity.
He is true treasure. Out of his glory he meets this man's needs and will supply him resolve to reveal heaven's secret to that pair.
Upon beautiful ascents he declares: "I trusted in Him. I delight in him, and he grants me my heart's desires. He makes my righteousness shine clear as the day and the justice of my cause like the brightness of noon. My inheritance will last forever."
