The Lost

Raindrops ran like tears down my face. The soft pitter-patter of water on rooftops echoed through me, a cascade of endless reasons why I should not be alive.
The rain was the beginning for me, and had brought me to the end.
Why had I survived?
How could my heart still beat after it had been shattered and broken?
These questions filled my head, day in and day out. I dared not sleep, for fear of reliving my nightmare. Dreams were uncontrollable fiends, they were. I couldn't trust even myself anymore.
So I would lie in the dark, letting the tears spill over onto the pillow, listening to the thud of my empty heart again and again.
I had lost everything...everything.

This is really good.  This is kind of similar to my writing style, though I've never known how to work with it.  Nice job.

Aww, sad story.

This is how I feel a lot, without the losing everything part. I do go though depression once in a while and I know its hard to get out of.
