Dusk broke through the nighttime sky, filling it with fire and bright light as the distant sun peaked over the horizon.
It was a quiet warning, I knew. Although my mind did not want to admit it.
But I took the hint, and slowly the fire of the sky dripped into cold drops and came cascading to the ground over my shattered heart.
Even the sky could not pretend to stand strong as the heart inside my chest continued to ***** with every given moment.
The rain ended, and I knew it was over.
Billowing clouds encircled and surrounded me, attempting to form a safety net from the rest of the world.
The clouds parted and the sky cleared into a majestic array of vibrant colors. The broken pieces of my heart, now scattered across the ground, were lifted up and slowly pieced together, although the cracks within remained visible to the eye.
It would be a process, I knew, and maybe I did not want the cracks to completely heal, but I did want to feel whole.
