I cannot tear my eyes away from the light. It shines brightly from the window- enticing, beautiful, but giving nothing away.
Somewhere beyond the light is the love of my life. In greater distress than I can ever imagine. The light shines on her, but tells me nothing of how she is.
I feel guilty. It was my need for pleasure that causes my love so much pain. The light does nothing to assuage my guilt.
Soon, someone will come out and give me the news. But till then all I can do is wait. And stare at the light.
