The silence (theme:Lost!)

Post by DrDad » Fri Apr 04, 2014 11:58 pm

He stands transfixed by the silence. Of all things, it is the silence that gnaws at him the most. A million empty windows glare down at him. On the streets that should be full of humanity, only the wind moves. Streetlights change purposelessly, while cars sit empty and still.

He drifted off to sleep last night to the normal cacophony of the city. It was the quiet that woke him, that lured him into the chill morning air. That’s when fear began to take hold.

He screams. The echoes mock him. He is alone, lost in this strange familiar emptiness.
