I sat at the lights, watching the opposing traffic passing. The night was cold and dark, I could see my breath floating in front of my hands. The rain trickling down the windscreen, setting the sombre mood and locking in my emotions. I felt as dead as the darkened night, I found serenity within and freezing wind. The sound of passing cars and rattling trains, the pitter-patter of the ever gentle rain, the soft moaning of the icy wind. It was a peaceful melancholy.

I pushed them off in a surge of power, fuelled by the instincts of survival. I hit the cold pavement hard, landing on the side of my face.
