The Green Wall

 

They both huddled in a damp building

with fading, light green walls

away from the inquisitive eyes of the world

 

They held hands and spoke earnestly

and the wall came closer to hear them

He whispered incoherent words into her ear

which she half-understood,

but the green wall blushed bright green

as it understood the meaning of the each word

and its deep implications

Was that wall a woman?

 

Next he made promises

and the wall went further green

This time with envy

The wall was probably a woman

 

She waited for him

The next day, the following day

and the whole week

He never came

She wept with sorrow,

no companion to share her grief

but the wall shared her misery,

crying with her,

till its faded green color

further lightened

Yes, the wall was definitely a woman
