Along The Road.

Deserted!

That’s the only way I can describe the place.

There’s not another soul to be seen.

There are no children in the park, no parents. No couples sit side by side on the bench holding hands. No pedestrians taking a rest.

No pedestrians at all! Or vehicles!

The silence is not a pleasant one, but heavy, foreboding.

The trees still stand, stretching up towards the sky but there is no wind, no breeze. They are nothing more than immobile sentries marking the way.

My footsteps seem loud as they each make impact with the street.

Maybe someone will hear them.

Maybe someone will join me.

Should I shout out? Call? See if there is anyone that can hear me? Anyone at all?

It seems that I am all alone, that the world has been deserted.

There’s a mist ahead, a fog. Perhaps it is hiding the answer, clouding my mind.

There is only one way to find out.

There is only one way for me to go.

I can’t stay here. Not all alone.

There is only one way for me to go and that is forward along this road.
