Rendered to a puddle of a man, he sat on that creaky bed, in that flea-bitten motel at the end of the city of despair. The walls seemed too gray for the room he’d rented. But who cares, he thought, as he felt his life crumbling around him, with weeping of his cries, streaming down his wind-worn cheeks.
He missed her already. And he was hungry for her touch again. Even her gaze, within his vicinity was warmth enough to satisfy his loneliness. He had never realized how much he needed her, how much she was a part of him, how much he wasn’t, without her making him complete.
He was not complete. A big piece of the puzzle was missing now. A hollow plain, with echoes of a happier past, lived in his heart.
His life was rendered to a shadow of a man – once proud, now empty and rudderless.
The walls seemed too gray for the room he’d rented.
The tears never seemed to stop.

The heartfelt expressions of Evan is a feeling of old world maturation that is remarkable and insanely moving.

Inside each word, there lies a truth of sorts, relegating story telling, to an art form that is beautiful to witness.
