190. Wait

This post has been published by me as a part of the Blog-a-Ton 36; the thirty-fifth edition of the online marathon of Bloggers; where we decide and we write. To be part of the next edition, visit and start following Blog-a-Ton. The theme for the month is "and then there were none"

Every time he came home, crowds came home.
Proud. Jubilant.
Everybody enjoyed the connection.

One day, he died. On the battlefield.
They came in large numbers. Officials, Reporters, Cameramen, Politicians.
They spoke about bravery, about legacy, about patriotism.

And then there were none. Nowhere. Never.

She waits in agony. For end of one more life.

  15. Any reader would be struck by the profound truth that you've spoken off in six brief phrases. What was the inspiration behind this take on the subject?
