Rain poured from my skin.

I felt the blanket of whimsical daydreams yanked off of my head, and I saw a world of tragedies. Anyone could drop dead at any moment. Anyone can die. If it didn't happen to others, it would happen to me.

Vengeful clouds of grey crowded the sky, blotted out the warmth of the sun, and converged to obey the emotions my body felt. My body preceded my mind; my heart lost its innards, and my mind went numb, flew away, remained dumb. What a shock absorber denial can be.

What does sound mean in times of loss? My ears work well, but the cries felt distant, felt foreign. They felt before I felt. 

I ramble on and on. What else can I do? I never expected, intended, wanted, prophesied this to occur. Even when I learned what had happened, I remained ignorant and hollow and waiting. I wait for the door to vibrate with dull knocking. I wait for that familiar laugh that I'm fearful I've forgotten, I'll forget. I wait for her hugs again. And again, my arms are empty. 

The rain poured from my skin, and the Earth shared my sorrow.
