A Dead Caused A Death
It was a silent night probably because it was 3’0 clock on the dial. Streets were clear, two or three cars crossed by in an hour or two. It was a summer night but a cold summer night for me. I walked swiftly in a black night gown, my hair falling back on my shoulders and a few of my strands were on my forehead. I was bare foot but I could only feel the wind crossing by as my hair were flowing in that direction, however, I couldn’t feel the moisture; it has maybe because my body felt numb. The moon was shinning down brightly; it seemed happy although. My dress was flowing in the direction on wind and I had to flip back my strands from my forehead as they were causing distraction. I stared the street, in the dark, my pupil dilating; trying to see everything… I wasn’t smiling nor crying but I was confused.
Why am I still alive? The lust of the living life had died inside me… when… when…
Tears flowed down my checks, I wiped one away and touched the other tear bubble slowly and felt it burst over my skin… it felt like killing, my throat felt stiff and my nose too… I could feel my skin going pale and my nose turning red… I shouted aloud… the loudest I could… why did he have to leave??… Why isn’t he showing up??? I felt the breeze hurting my legs now, giving me a symbol, a sign, bringing me back to the reality… the reality I had missed… I didn’t want to accept… he has died… dead… underground 9’feets, buried in a white coffin… stale… rotten… invaded by insects… I looked at the sky… I could see his beautiful face, his mesmerizing blue eyes, his hair, his smile, his seductive body… I could feel his sensation; the lust of his touch grew more and more… I want him… that was the last thing that broke my control over my tears… the tears I had been controlling… I sat down on the floor… trying to grab my stamina… I could feel loosing everything, myself, my existence, everything…
I stand back again… climbed up the wall… I was standing on the wall of a seven story building.. one more step and I would fall in the heavens… where I would meet him… no boundaries were there… no more suffering… I was ready to die… smiled… I don’t know why… but I was ready… and that was when I lost my balance and entered my heaven…!
