He sits still, with his eyes fastened on her. "She isn't moving a muscle," he thought. Oh how much he wished she would just move a muscle. She's been in this state now for 6 months. Unable to move. Unable
respond. Unable to wake up. Unable to help herself. Unable to live out
her promise of being his wife. Unable to return his love. Oh how much he
wished she would just move a muscle. Today was a really tough day for
him. He couldn't get his mind off some of the things they've been
through together. They were truly precious moments. Moments he wouldn't
sell for a million dollars. Oh how much he wished she would just move a
muscle. "Wake up, baby...wake up. Just move something, anything to let
me know you hear me. I need to know you still love me."

Yet, out of the dark, unseen area of his heart grew love for another. He never thought it would happen. Close affection for
another. She was a friend he could speak to, have lunch with, and even
cry in front of. "Wake up baby, please." She was a friend who liked him
in return. But oh how he wished his wife would just move a muscle. And
give him a hug like his friend did almost every morning before work.

While I am sure there are a great many people here who might feel empathy for this man, you have given no context for me to make any kind of useful comment.

Is the man you? Is the man someone you know? Is the story some kind of metaphor for something else?

Help me out here.

God is a cruel, cruel motherfucker, you got that right.

Hahahaha! That's the final word of theists, then? As if they lost all hope of arguing for the existence of god and the necessity of religion — they turn their tactic into drama and tear-jerking? What's next, a picture of a child with puppy-eyes with captions like, "This kid, needs you. Just $10 a month... and be a christian".

Regarding to your little prose, check a doctor. It might be Myotonic Dystrophy. Otherwise, you can keep hoping for a dead to wake up, but there will be no god present to resurrect her.

@Neal this story isn't for everyone. It no one understands it, that's fine with me. If someone does...great. But the entire story is a obviously a metaphor.
