In The Rain

February 16, 2009
Bright red truck
Sitting in the parking lot
Perfectly gleaming
In the sunshine
A flash of light
Its raining now
Thunder and lightning
The right front end
Seemingly not much damage
Harmless for the driver
Scott, my best friend
Or so I thought
And then
He appears
Or his ghost does
Standing by the truck
That was once glorious
And as fast as he appeared
He is gone
With the high winds
And the rain
Forever a memory

This was really lovely. The imagery was great, and it all made sense. It was obviously a horrible dream, just as you said.
