Captain of a row-boat on high seas, approaching a storm.

He sits at the computer, waiting for some response from her. Anything. She hasn’t spoken to him in a while. He doesn’t know why, and it’s killing him.

He thinks it could be him. He keeps thinking to himself, “Have I done or said something to upset her?”. He only finds one answer each time. “I just don’t know.” Maybe it isn’t him, maybe it’s something else.

But the thought keeps coming. Over and over again. He feels lost. Like he’s the captain of a row-boat, alone on high seas, in the face of a giant storm. He wants to know where to turn, why he was here now, and how he could make things better.

But she didn’t respond. So he didn’t know. But he hoped. Still hopes.

Maybe the storm is just an illusion, maybe he’ll find the answers. The compass heading he’s supposed to turn to, why he was here now, and how he could make things better. Or right. Anything.

But he needs her to respond. And she doesn’t. At least not yet. But he still waits. And keeps trying to get her to.

He waits at the computer. Studying notes for an exam he’d be giving in a few days, just to distract him from the silent, unchanging screen in front of him.

He prays she’ll respond. He hopes. He wants to know. He needs to know. So that he never does it again. To anyone. After all that she’s taught him about life, he really needs this lesson the most. Because he’d learn something more important than any book could teach him.

He sits at the computer, waiting for some response from her. Anything. She hasn’t spoken to him in a while. He doesn’t know why, and it’s killing him.

  1. gracias…this is something that just poured out last night..it’s been too long that i’ve not heard from her..and it’s freaking me out..cos if there’s something that can be done to fix the situation, i need to know the cause..even if it’s not me..but i can’t do anything but float in my row-boat in high seas till the storm hits i guess..
