I was missing someone. I checked my watch, it was 2 am. I
peeped out of the window and saw the dark sky outside with brightly lit stars,
it appeared as if diamonds were studded in the sky. I took the car keys &
tip-toed out of the house. I accelerated & drove on the highway. A bright
orange ball of Sun sneaked from the clouds, it was a break of a new day. I
turned the wheels towards my friend’s house whom I was missing with intention
to revive the severed relationship to start afresh with better understanding.
