Separation

"Don't leave me!" he screamed, sobbing, his cheeks wet with tears.

He was on his knees, tightly holding on to her hand, trying to stop her from walking away. She was sobbing too, as she pulled her hand away.

"Please don't make this more difficult," she cried, freeing her hand from his.

"Don't go! I'm begging you!"

But she turned around and left anyway, running out through the open door to the taxi that was waiting for her - a shameless witness to their grief.

"Please! he cried through the open door, as he collapsed on to the floor. Please!"

But the taxi sped away. And he lay on the floor, curling up into a ball, sobbing against his knees, as even the setting sun disappeared over the horizon, leaving him alone with only his tears, just like she had.

Touching. Perplexing.

Its like one of those images of the setting sun. The picture by itself means nothing but evokes a sense of... melancholy.

Deaths Head Roy said...

Goyal, M, Deaths Head Roy, TII, Ojas: I apologize for the bad memories, but just felt like writing this one, so I did.

SmartOxymoron: I know exactly what you mean.

Lee: I wouldn't really know. The same as him, maybe, only worse? Because she's the one who is left making the decision. I don't know. Hard to say.

Danesh: He he! Cute.

a very wonderful piece no doubt. but your skills at writing are good even exceptional (at least to me, I must add).

I admire you for that. Even the conversations with god series is really good.

Keep up the good work bro....
