Last week I got a letter from a complete stranger. In it he wrote, “Dear David, I want to confess, could I see you?” I replied and he called me.
Last Friday he came to my home. He was a tall, handsome young man. But his body said he has been starving for days…
Then he started his story. His eyes were full of tears. At last he wept before me, like an innocent child. Then I hugged him; I wanted to wash his sin…
He had come in to the city for a job. He deadly wanted some money. His lover has been waiting for him. And he began his search. But…

“I had been wandering for days.
I left my place two weeks ago.
I had been asking for a job.
But I had failed in it.”

“The hunger was creeping inside me.
My belly and head ached.
Then I saw her smile.
It consoled me and I started again.”

“Yes, I had her, my lover.
A person who expects me,
Who believes in me, pray for me?
Then I started again.”
**** *********** ************

She was a fat lady.
He met her on a door.
Sure she was rich.
Her cloth and ornaments proved it.

She was searching for a gigolo.
And when she saw him,
A smile lit her face.
Then she called him.

“I’ll give you five hundred rupees.”
She offered him.
They were standing at a corner of the street,
Then he had accepted it…
Because he was going to die,
The hunger and thirsty…
************* *************
In bed he did things, which she wanted.
It was his first time.
But he felt sickness.
He wanted to vomit.

“What the hell are you doing?”
The fatty kicked on his belly.
Then he tried to remember his lover…
That made things easy.

He saw his lover.
He slept with her.
They made love each other.
“It was fantastic”,
The sound awoken him from the dream,
And with a shock he knew,
What wrong he had done.
************** *********
He heard fatty’s snoring.
He lay in the bed without sleep.
His lover’s figure appeared before him.
Her innocent smile and look…

“Her eyes were full of tears,
When I said her farewell.
Suddenly she ran in to the field,
I heard her sobbing…”

She had said him that
She would have been waiting for him.
She would have been waiting for him.
The thought made him cry.

Slowly he arose and
Went in to the bathroom.
He opened the tap.
The water hit the floor.

“She would have been waiting for me.
She would have been keeping herself for me.
But, I didn’t keep myself.
Oh god…”

He felt deep pain,
It attacked his heart and mind.
He couldn’t breath…
He couldn’t even stand.
And his tears flowed down.
He burst in to tears…
************* ***********
Oh dear girl,
Let me wash his sin,
With his tears and
With my blood.

Oh dear girl,
Forgive him.
Forgive him
Forgive him.

Hi David,

What a sad write. I think she will forgive him. The question is, will he forgive himself?

Reviewed by Retta (Reindeer) Mckenzie 8/12/2003
This was so sad, but beautifully written,

Reviewed by Paul Berube 8/12/2003
David, very sad write. I believe the stranger to be a victim of circumstances but there had to be other ways to obtain money for sustainance.
Reviewed by Nancy D. 8/12/2003
