As the rain

Washes over the

Windowpane

The storm whistles

Through me,

Raging.

The lightning

Illuminates the darkness

And makes appear

Everything

I was trying to hide.

The thunder

Crashes echoing through the

Empty spaces

Shattering everything

That used to be.

As the rain

Washes over the

Windowpane

I am left alone

And broken

And even as

The storm recedes

I struggle to keep my head

Above the water.
