Living like a GHOST

Updated on November 17, 2009

Alone in the Crowd

Just sharing ...

She's a simple lass at the age of 25. Living in a dormitory somewhere in the slum area. She stays in a room for rent but actually living a bed spacer's life. There are eight beds in that said room. It is crowded with fellow lady bed spacers in all walks of life. Basically, there is no place to move in the place where she sleeps, but just in bed. It is even quite dangerous to keep valuable belongings for there are lots of thieves in the place. The place is noisy 24 hours a day. Never it happened that the place became quiet. Indeed, the place is crowded but she's no place to be seen just in her bed.

In workplace, she simply do not talk. There are 32 employees in the department where she works but no one is her acquaintance. She simply do not talk. Once in the blue moon you can hear her. That's only when she is asked about her work assignment or there's something needed from her. Her co-employees are all friends, except for her - she does not socialite. She has her own world. But the place is crowded.

With friends? She has nobody. She does not socialite remember? She just stay in a corner and do stuffs alone. She does not complain. Even though she has something in mind she does not merge with the crowd to share her ideas or her life. Even though she feels like shouting, she does not. She just behaves in one corner and cry - alone. This is even there are shoulder among the crowd where she can cry.

It is a puzzle. She's so complex that no one understand. But is she really complex? What's wrong with her life? What should she do? Is there still happiness that awaits such a lonesome lass?

Thank you. Thank you for reading these sentiments of life.

      Hi Motricio!

      You have a point. All of us have a heart. So there's no reason for her not to feel any tenderness at all.

      Thanks for the comment :)

      You have a beautiful heart.

      Expressed yourself with touching words, but I don't beleave that "She" is so lonesome to not feel tenderness in a friend's hug.

      I wish you had some space in which to breathe, some privacy in which to cry, and friends with whom to laugh.

      One day you will.

      Be strong ghost, your time is coming.
