Pursue

She always said she’d never give up chasing.

Such a sadness in her eyes. But she has it all now. It’s been her dream for as far back as she can remember. She chased and she finally found the fame she was looking for.

The crowd cheers as she walks on the stage. She knows why they cheer because she looks beautiful and she sounds beautiful. I watch her and she seems happy.

I’m not the only one who thinks this. But there are a few of us who think, that she is an Angel, in one way or another. Her music, at least, is inspired by the divine, touching our souls

At the end of the show, she goes home. And then her loneliness sets in.

Yesterday she said she wouldn’t. But her hand reaches for it anyway. And she drinks to oblivion.

Tomorrow she flies out to Europe. She’ll hear the crowds calling her name. She’ll see many weeping. And then there’ll be me. I have tickets for every show and I’ll watch her hoping she will notice me. After all, she must know me – the man who wants to marry her – by now. I’ve never missed a show, nor an appearance. And I’ve always been there.

I know she’s wasted tonight. She’s Trying to forget. My dream is to hold her. And to love her.

I need to get to sleep now. I have a busy month ahead. So I say the silent prayer I always do every night before I drift off to sleep:

“Please God, I’ve asked so many times…Please…. Please help her notice me”

    1. Thank you, not only for your comment, but for giving me a different perspective. I was going down the route of him being a bit stalkerish……But, his desire for her could genuinely be out of love. Not a creepy love, but a real love. And if she did notice him, she might just find her peace and happiness. Perhaps. Thanks for reading and the comment!! 😀

  1. Very nice and meaningful! Encourages me to write some more, as my life has been crazy busy lately and I haven’t the time. One reason I love to read Quality fiction is because is encourages me to keep writing as well! Thanks for the good read!

      1. You’re welcome! I won’t stop writing as long as I have eyes that can see and hands that can type!😉 Things have just been a little crazy so I have less time to do so. Again, great work!
