The destiny or fate or God or some power change the direction of our life. Her destiny was changed a year ago. Her life has made many turns but now struck at a strange corner where It refuses to move in any direction. She is no longer standing confused on the four-way stop looking for the right direction to go. She does not look for any help either that someone would come and push her to the right path. Instead, she has pushed herself into the corner. She stands alone in the corner where nobody can see her. She cannot see anybody either because she is hidden in the corner. She can hear everything but she has closed her both ears. Sometimes, she laughs at herself, “Naturally getting blind and selectively getting deaf”. She does not run to find him. Her life-long search was ended when she met him. It was returned temporarily when he was gone again but now it is stuck in the corner forever.
Nothing could pull her out of the corner. She just sits quietly over there. Does she wait for him to come? No, she does not wait for him to return. All she waits for the special day of her life which she does not know when? People get tired of advising her to come out of the corner. You have a long life ahead of you. How long you will stand alone? She is stubborn as usual. How she will let somebody pull out of that corner? she even refuses to almighty to pull her out of the corner. She says, “I feel safe and secure in the corner. Nobody will hurt me anymore, I love it”. Nobody can blame her.
Life has not changed at all. It is stuck since he was gone a year ago. The year has passed but her pain is still intense. Her suicidal and homicidal thoughts are gone. She can still see and feel his presence around him. She had tried to kill herself and had tried to save him many times. Everything has changed around her. The only thing so far is not changed that is her feeling and love for him. She says sadly, “It does not matter where we are. I will be always yours. It is okay if I won’t see you in this life. We will meet again in next life. It does not matter if you are good or bad but you are still the love of my life”.
There is no day or minutes or second in the year which she has spent without thinking of him. This year has left many emotional or physical wounds that will be never healed. This year has passed in the fear and nightmares. The remaining years will be passed like this. Sometimes, she sees him from a distance. sometimes she sees his pictures. she remembers each minute both had spent together. She looks at the pictures every day. She read some clips which he had written with a pen, taken the pictures, and had sent it to her.
Her world was small and happy before he came into her life. Her World had become happiest forever when he had been in her life. The small world has shrunk more since he has gone. The year is gone but intense pain and the ocean of tears are still with her. Sometimes, she thinks, “I am not sure if I or you are tornadoes. I thought it was me. I was wrong. You came into my life and took everything away from me. You were brave enough to love me. you were coward to protect your love”.
The tears start to shed when she thinks of her doggy boy. She tells him, “I have treated all children the same way. I love all our live and dead children. There is still no matter of mine, yours, and ours. I miss hearing the conversation of my beautiful daughters. They used to make my day. I will be there to protect them if you could not. I don’t trust you when it comes to protection”.
The new desires, hopes, and dreams came when he arrived in her life. Some were already there. She has killed all those desires, dreams, and hopes before she hid into the corner. She wrapped everything. Over the year, she killed her desires and hopes. She did a fancy and deep burial of things that she wanted to do for him.
She is hidden in the corner and support herself, “This is the era of darkness. There is no value of true love and feelings. I was not born to get my long-lost love back. I was born to pay for your sins. It is very true that sometimes we pay the price for the sins of our loved ones. I could not live with you. I could not get your love. However, I will live the rest of life with your name. I will be buried with your name on my graveyard what else I need it”.
Over the past years, she has insulted many people. Many have insulted her. She doesn’t have any hard feelings for anybody. It was the year that has shown her who would stand with you during your hardship. She had chosen him. He was and is her priority. It did not matter to her if he could not stand by her. It does not matter to her if he had become a coward. She still has chosen him. Because of him, he had insulted many people. What about the family who came to support her and to adopt her? But she often gets angry at them. She is angry and sad. She has admitted to her boss, “No, I am not ready to return to work permanently. I love my patients and I cannot
compromise anybody’s health. I will return when I feel that I am safe to return”.
She gets easily angry and frustrated. She did not like it when somebody just tried to get a work note from her lying about his sickness. She yelled at her patient, “You should be honest to me. You should tell me the truth, “I was not sick. and I can lose my job if I don’t have a medical certificate”.
she doesn’t mind giving her autograph to save somebody’s job but she doesn’t like someone lie to her. Later on, she realized, she never stressed or yelled at anybody before. It was all about lies that had made her scare the patient. In her normal situation, she could have handled it differently. Now, she is not the same person anymore.
The year-ago, life was taken away from her. Now, she has found her corner to hide. The year is gone, but the intense pain and tears are still there. The wounds are still open. The perfect woman is not perfect anymore.
