A part of me died when I touched her that day. I had dreamt for the longest time to touch her and make her feel loved, I knew it was close to impossible. I met her every day and with each day I felt I was closer to my dream of touching her and holding her in my arms. I wanted to love her and tell her that I cared about her with all my heart but who knew when I’d touch her I wouldn’t really be able to tell her how much she meant to me.
She died just like that. She was gone. I hoped she’d wake up to my touch but she just lay there without any sign of life.
My heart ached so badly, because every time I looked at her I remembered how hard this life had been for her. She never let anyone close to her because she’d been beaten up so many times by the people around her. She was only a pup when these scarring events happened. Her loved ones called her Noori and somehow every time I fed her she’d come running. She would jump at the sight of food but with caution.
People hated her because they said she was too ferocious but what they failed to understand was they were responsible for what she had become. They didn’t let her sit anywhere, they wanted her killed and they objected to her being fed.
Human Beings think of themselves as the most superior beings but most of the times I question whether they are at all. There is so much hatred, frustration and indifference that it gets too suffocating sometimes. People aren’t ready to open their minds to anything that doesn’t confirm what they already believe in. People think it’s a petty cause to fight for dogs. But rarely do they realize that the pain dogs feel is as real as the very pain they run away from.
Love is the sole purpose of life. It is the only entity that remains after everything is lost. It is the only thing that saves and makes this world a better place.
Noori, you will always have a part of me. I love you. And I hope you’re happy and at peace wherever you are.
