The Life Show must go on

    Newer Older

    The Sleeper was stretched on her comfortable deck-chair and had put on her hat for every seasons, while a light breeze coming from the ruffling sea waves was caressing her tanned legs and the smell of the sea was carrying her mind away.
    The drama of her young life driven to despair and harassed by problems not easy to solve floated before her eyes in a disturbing way. The gravity of her situation couldn’t be underestimated, even if the two of them were still linked together by a close bond of affection.
    The Sleeper looked mercilessly into her boyfriend’s pale and strained face, that revealed false pretenses mingled with an indefinite sense of guilt. Truly determined to penetrate the defensive shield erected around him, she found out painful scars of time concealed into the folds of his skin worn away by perpetual stress in their love story, violating the privacy of his facial features, looking for all their disarming vulnerability, all their secret consistency of pure mirrors of souls bound to double-cross her.
    In this embarrassing situation where the impurity of deviating thoughts finds its barycenter in ill-concealed impulses of jealousy, her nervous tension was redoubled, due to the dialectic game of her lonely soul with her nerves on the edge.
    The smell of the sea was carrying her mind away. The Sleeper loved him. She loved him with all her heart but she knew their story was irremediably over. This wasn’t the end of the world though; she quoted some simple words in her mind: “The life show must go on at all costs” and understood everything. At last.
