Waiting.


She sat facing the window.

The door’s locked tight, so were windows; Light barely crept in. Her body grew defiant and feeble with each passing day; decay has set in.

She waited for rain.

    Waiting for rain can also be symbolic of waiting for tears to flow, indicating that you are still alive. Often we become so numb due to several reasons, that we can’t feel our own emotions and sit blank longing for a cause to be alive, our reflexes decay, and we want a sign, even the tears would do, to show that we do actually have a life.
