Drenched

I read his message over and over again. Yet, it made no sense. Or maybe it left an emptiness as great as the ocean. It is overThree little words, but the impact it left on me was profound.

I looked outside the window, grey clouds were forming, indicating a heavy downpour soon. The tops of the pretty houses that surrounded mine could be visible from my balcony. 

As it rained, I simply stood there. Watching it, allowing it to fall over me. The raindrops mingled with the tears on my face, caressing me. And I felt cleansed.
