There are times when you want to hide from the world, shy away from every single living creature. The wave of emotions hit your throat and at that moment all you want, is to stay invisible. To you and everyone around you. To lock yourself up and weep the hell out and create a deluge and swim in those salty puddles. But the sliver of hope always lies within you. To stay up and watch that silver lining. Hoping against hope and trying to fix your gaze upon a countenance. A sign may be. A sign to tell you that you need to stand up tall and move towards that countenance. To reach to that position and stand still. You lay your hands on that shoulder and wait for the individual to respond. And finally, you see that face that was hiding all the while for a person like you to lay hands on the shoulder.
