Its raining, it drizzles softly. Though the sun shines majestically across the ever so blue sky, the wind carries crystal raindrops, hitting the pavements, windows, walls.

Was it just a bad dream, was it an enigma. No matter how brilliantly the mind thinks, nothing could decipher the meaning of life. How surreal happiness is, its like waves, one point youre way up, soaring in the sky amongst winged companions, and then you tremble to the ground, lowly deformed and intoxicated.

Raindrops run away from the truth. Leaving sanctuary, travel the distances, only to get crushed by reality. To only be too little too late, when the realization comes. Raindrops, no, they're teardrops now.

Teardrops of intense sadness, devastation and misery. Teardrops of losing faith, love and affection. Its agonizing, watching the dreams being washed away, swept in an instance, to try to hold on to that fantasy. The fantasy that could never materialize, still, its the one thing that kept sanity intact.

And now teardrops.You searched far and wide and nothing, theres nothing you gain. Hope is still there, but it crushes the soul with that picture of a happy ending, even though thats never the destination. Its just a phase. In the end teardrops, you face these lonely nights alone, isolated, away, brave yes you are. But in the end teardrops.

You disappear.
