A quick tale 150

At Ease

I can see you looking at me. With sympathy in your eyes. I'm sure you are wondering what I look forward to in each day. After all, how different can the ceiling look from one day to the next? You feel sorry for me and you come and sit next to me. You tell me about your job, your family, your plans, your future as you hold my hand. You believe this is going to make me feel better. I'm alright, I try to tell you, don't pity me. I too was chasing dreams once. But I'm happy with the way things are going now. I lie back and think about things past. People long gone. No, I don't yearn for the old days. They were stormy and wild. I have good memories and I'm content to be where I am today. It's my time to reflect. I just wish my knees wouldn't hurt so much.

god story and a good comment, Anon. When your comment is so good, what prevents you from leaving your name?

I always wonder about that myself DeepA

but many are not so content, and some do crave the sympathy. and hence we still guilt and pain with their pain.


tilo: people have many reasons to be anonymous. i have done so myself in your blog, for the reasons that my blog's readership shouldnt expand, and also, maybe my comment sometimes if associated with all my others in other blogs, would be unwelcome/unresponded to.



am sure the anon above had other reasons, though. he/she could have just not had the patience to.
