She slept curled on the bed with her left cheek pressed down against the pillow. Darkness had engulfed her. Her expression was grim. Her lips subconciously drooped down towards the end. Her eyes seemed pale even in the darkness of the night. They blinked too often, she'd been crying a couple of hours now. A tear slithered down from her right eye slowly, as if mocking at her for her foolishness. It stopped just above the nose where it joined by another tear. A third quickly followed. She slept in a pool of her warm tears. She wiped off the tears often only to make place for some more of them. She wondered if anyone in the world knew how she felt. If anyone felt the way she did.
A faded song played somewhere,
"Kyun khoye khoye chaand ki firaq mein talash mein udaas hai dil,
Kyun apne aap se khafa khafa zara zara sa naraz hai dil,
Yeh manzillen bhi khud hi tay kare,
Yeh faasale bhi khud hi tay kare,
Kyun khoye khoye chaand ki firaq mein talash mein udaas hai dil."
