“He’s not in our world”, you said.
It was a sunny Wednesday afternoon,
when you last saw him displaying his perky smile;
throwing nonsense punch lines and witticism,
which gave you positivity and pleasure.
And since that time, everybody thought he’ll act the same on the succeeding days.
As day had passed, you’ve seen him, loosing liveliness.
He’s so quiet, not talking to anybody;
like no one surrounds him, no one’s with him.
He wasn’t even looking into other people’s eyes.
You heard no whispers;
even his breathe.
It’s unusual, and weird at the same time.
You looked at him,
trying to find hints as to what really happened.
You thought, the answer was in his eyes,
nothing was there but emptiness.
It took you exactly ten steps to reach him.
You asked him why.
Still, you didn’t figure out.
He actually became the winner of his own game,
I mean, he made others believe he’s well, he’s okay, he’s fine;
although he’s not.
He used to be happy every day,
pretending as if nothing’s wrong,
nothing’s bothering his mind,
nothing’s falling apart and
nothing’s stealing the delight he used to feel.
No one cared.
Even his sister, who always pick wrong choices, wrong decisions and follows wrong direction;
even his mom, who’s so obsessed with her new-asshole-pretentious-dick-head-husband─ a nightmare!
Even his aunts, who blamed him for being so ambitious, a thief, liar;
even his dad, who started all the pain and;
even his desires, the people whom he expected would help him, and even his own self.
Anyway, it’s not their fault.
Who would even dare to join with his complicated and messy life?
Behind those smiles,
are millions of fears,
sadness, and weaknesses,
destroying all his thoughts like bombs.
Behind his loud voice,
are dark clouds, seemed to burst lightning, heavy rains and thunderstorms.
No rainbows, no bliss at all.
And just like the clouds,
Soon, will fade away
