The Incomplete Letter

She couldn't breathe...a pain engulfed her heart as she blankly stared at the letter in front of her. "It is him!", she said loudly to herself, confirming that this isn't a ghost of her dreams but real. She bit her lip, sniffed back a tear and ran her fingers along his handwriting...


"He has eyes just like yours....that is all you saw? Nothing else??" she cried. There was no address that could lead to him....just this incomplete letter that had stirred up the many buried emotions. Suddenly she felt claustrophobic, the walls of the house drawing closer to her inch by inch. She ran out, on the streets, desperately looking for him. But, alas....their story was to remain incomplete..forever....She couldn't even tell him that it was his son, he saw.
