A Short Story


“What to write? What to write?” I asked myself repeatedly as I sat quietly with a heavy heart, hoping the emotions lingering in the inner depths of my being would speak louder and clearer. I tried to concentrate, and allow myself to immerse into nature’s often neglected realm. I could hear my heart throbbing, complementing the thumping sound of footsteps echoing along our corridor. The fan kept turning, painting a whirl in my mind as I dissolved into a trance powered by the squishing sound of the running water from the shower room. I felt the swish and the swash that turned into burbling sounds as nature transported me into the jaws of my humanity.

I was thrown into nothingness. Down I went into what seemed an endless fall. Looking up, I saw the light fading from the opening. The sound faded as well but only for a short while. There was silence everywhere making me feel numb with cold. Things weren’t making sense, you see. I was falling, I know, yet I was getting lighter as I fall.

*To be continued…

*Friends, I’m cooking up a short story. It doesn’t have a title yet… Will figure it out later. 🙂
