THE ABYSS (genre/realistic fiction)
PHOTO PROMPT © Yvette Prior
By Neel Anil Panicker
His is a nihilist’s indulgence. An ode to a life gone horribly wrong.
Can he ever right it? Undo all the wrongs? Wake up from his lethal drug-cum-alcohol-cum-sex-cum rock ‘n’ roll slumber? Get his tottering life back on the rails?
He swipes away the tears, the dirt and the grime that ooze out of every body pore.
It’s an effort in vain.
The world, his God forsaken world, from where he views it, stark naked and on all fours on the spartan floors, covered in an assortment of liquids and semi-liquids, is still a maze.
His gaze falters; sleep beckons.
