falling apart

What is funny today is that while everything is falling apart around me, mostly what I feel is a sense of relief. And a bit of hope.

Today the rain came down fast and hard. I left work early to catch the storm. The streets were flooded and the sky was dark and electric. The water hit my face, cold and wet. I pushed back my hair. I stared at the sky. I walked straight into it. I waded through the deepest instead of aiming for the shallow. Everything was glowing and alive. I felt watered, refreshed.
