The vastest things are those we may not learn.
We are not taught to die, nor to be born,
Nor how to burn
With love.
How pitiful is our enforced return
To those small things we are the masters of.
--Mervyn Peake

I saw her crying through the rain-spattered window
The wind snatched at her hair and exposed her expression
She was brittle and breaking in the temper of the heavens
The pieces of beliefs she tried to maintain trailed in her wake

I saw her crying through the rain-spattered window
And I saw a phantom of myself

Sometimes, good things fall apart so that better things can fall together.

That was really good :) I liked how it wasn't all long and ugly and monotonous. It was just short and nice and meaningful and there weren't really any unnecessary lines. Nice.(:
