    Summary

    I stare out the window as the rain falls from the sky; not fast and hard but instead slow and steady.

    Just like she was

    She was the only person who could keep me right; was the calm, soothing ice to my hot and painful personality. We worked well together, but now she's gone.

    We used to look up into the stars and think of what would happen if stars were the close beautiful lights that people thought shone on Earth, instead of the hot ball of gas that they actually are. What would it be like if the rain came from the beautifully destructive stars?

    Jesus leads a life of disorder and disarray, lonely and apathetic, until he leaves home one day with hardly anything on his back.

    Summary

    The glowing ghoulish digital clock on the oven said it was somehow already half past seven. I guess thunderstorms can really change the look of the sky. The sunrise was hidden behind clouds of smoke and darkness. I sighed at the thought of not seeing it today.
    Those were the kind of things that kept my mid distracted from the current state of my world: politics, my boyfriend and his "condition", the shaking in my legs and panic in my head.
