Long Hauls

It doesn’t come every wakeful moment… But at times like these when there is nothing else to do but get out of one long flight and wait for another, it comes after like a seductress would on an isolated island.

Boredom engages in style… It takes its hostage on an all-expense-paid trip to painful pursuits that can be forgotten but not forgone.

Sitting in the food court of the airport killing time with a cup of coffee, staring at the sky from the open windows at the roof he sighs… She would have loved this kind of life…

  1. Hi Parul, I especially liked the phrase “like a seductress would on an isolated island.”
    Great simile. Good internal dialog throughout. Airports are often places where people reflect, or pour out their hearts to strangers. Nice piece of writing.

Would love to hear what you have to say about this! :)
