Silence # A to Z Challenge

All these years she had wished for a few minutes of silence but today when she had one she sat confused tossing with her thoughts. She was now a woman free of her duties – retired, children married off, and a husband whom she had tamed over the years according to her preference.

She had all the silent, ‘me’ moments with no disturbance still she was not happy. A glum heavy heart felt as if the SILENCE was mocking at her. A few minutes were fine but now she had to live with it forever. That is how she had made it evident to her family and as much they loved her, they would never betray her wishes.

Only, this time, it was different and she wanted them to give her company occasionally, however, it was long before she could muster the courage to ask for it! 

Sometimes we are so busy with life that we forget it's true meaning.

Life,without the people around, would be like bland food, flavours of life add the zing to it and that is what makes it worth living. merely existing is like living the life of a log!!! True or false?

This post is a part of the A to Z Challenge 2016. Today's letter is  S.


  1. You are so right! It's a bit of chaos at my house and times, and i do ask for moments of quiet at times, but i am not looking forward to the day when the kids are all out of the house. Things will be a bit too quiet and i'll need to be out and doing stuff if and when that happens.

  2. Lovely piece - there is nothing more deafening than silence
