Rain On Me


...and wash my pains away

…and wash my pains away

She was asleep…when the cracking sound of thunder woke her up. She quickly got up, still trying to find out what it was. Then it announced its presence once again, this time with an even louder crack and an unmistakable flash of lightening that filled the room even through the narrow gap of the closed door. She had no doubt any more. “At last!!!”, she whispered to herself…and ran out into the open terrace as quickly as she could, almost stumbling while opening the door. And there it was…still away from the house…but it was approaching rapidly from all directions. It covered the horizon like a veil of white mist…nothing could be seen in the horizon anymore. “What took you so long?”, she asked in a tone of complaint. And it replied with a blazing flash, piercing across the dark columns of clouds above…and the endless reverberation of the thunder gradually fading away.

“Oh, I know…the same excuse again”, she smiled. Her wait was over. It was almost in her reach now. She gasped, taking a breath, and ran to the edge of the terrace, almost not able to hold herself back. “I’ve been waiting so long…”, she told, “not any more”. She could feel the surrounding changing, moist engulfing the dry and dusty air, quenching the thirst of the arid land. “I’ve suffered so much…”, she could now barely utter the words, her voice almost chocked in emotion. “…so much pain…”, tears rolled down her cheek. She closed her eyes.

And then the first droplet of water touched her gently in the forehead, and then another one splashed on her eyelid, and then another one on her lips…and then another…”Come…take me in your embrace”, she said, spreading her arms across. “Come to me…and wash my pains away…”, she murmured one last time…and then…it started…

P.S. This work is dedicate to my dearest of friends, Tinni. Thank you so much for supporting me, standing by me like nobody did and being my inspiration!!

    1. Hey Teagan !!
      Thanks you !
      I’m not much of a writer myself, but I enjoy reading a lot, specially fictions and short stories. It was really great to go over your works and wish to continue the same. So, it really means a lot coming that from you 🙂
      I enjoy doing my sketches and drawings (as much as possible, after my regular job), and the whole idea behind this blog was to share them with others. But I somehow also feel a strong urge to add a bit of thought that was going on in my mind while doing a sketch. This time, it took the form of a story (I don’t know how)
      Thanks again, for visiting my blog, and sorry for my late response 🙂
