And just like that, I watched her sitting in the corner of her room, with her head hung low on her hands. I went closer and tucked some strands of her hair behind.
Nothing. Nothing at all.
“Do you want to share what is it?”
She looked up and I swear I felt my heart break. Even with the rays of sun casting on her beautiful face, her eyes were devoid of any specks of emotion.
She just stared at a far distance. In that moment I knew she wasn’t grasping any of my words.
I knew I had to bring her back from whatever was eating her from inside. But I couldn’t push her more, not when she was so broken.
“I can’t help if you shut me out like that. Every time I look at you, my heart breaks a little more. Please let me get lost in darkness that’s pulling you back. I promise I’ll be your firefly and guide you through the paths to reach the door of lights. I know healing will take time-days, months or even years. But please let me do this.”
My eyes searched for any sign of approval in the depths of her brown orbs.
Nothing. Nothing, again.
“I will wait for you. Doesn’t matter however long it takes, I will wait for you.”
With a painful sigh, I kissed her forehead.
I knew it was a dangerous game I was playing; but in the end, we both were going to get damaged.
