Creative Interpretation: The Yellow Wallpaper
“John,” I whisper to the empty room. “John, please…” I say again even though I know that no one will answer at this point. Once again, I am left alone in this place. Left in the vastness of the empty halls that are not quite so empty after all when I walk through them. I'd rather they were really empty but they are not! They're not! Somewhere in those walls, I know she is there. Waiting for me… Taunting me… To come closer, talk to her, take her bait.
I am not afraid of her! No. In fact, I am intrigued by her. Still, it is a daunting preposition to come close. But I have seen her face. Just as sure as I am that I have seen those yellow walls move on their own. The patterns, yes - the patterns. I have grown familiar with them now. It's like I can tell when they change and when they take another shape, which they do. John would not believe me but if he could only see it! He's too busy. Too busy thinking of things outside this darned house. If he could but pay attention
