We stare endlessly at each other.
I lay still, frozen and paralyzed. I can neither blink my eyes nor close them. Her eyes shed invisible tears.
Our face portrays screaming silence.
The silence. It’s excruciating and immeasurable. My breath. It’s heavy and slow.
And our eyes are full of striking emptiness.
The man in the white coat had presented his verdict, – “Your body has shown signs of improvements.”
Outside the sun descends slowly.
It’s time. Tonight, I’ll choose not to breathe. I’ll end the never-ending pain for both of us. You’ll cry but move on. I’ll sleep in peace!
