~rainy Day~ - Poem by Autumn VanBrown
~Her arms wrapped around the body as he lay dying in her arms.
The storm came down with just enough force to keep the two in the car. One whom was sick to the point of death held on to his love with every inch of life. Knowing that the girl could not do anything about what was going on, she simply held him tighter as his life slowly left his body. In the back of her mind, she was convincing herself that everything would be all right when she knew she was wrong.
Her tears called out to the dying boy and her sadness ruptured into fear. Fear of never seeing the one she loves anymore and fear of if he were to come back as something else. Something more vibrant and hollow. As the thoughts roamed through her head, she began to pray. She prayed for him to be safe and prayed for the sickness to pass.
Once the prayer was complete, the grip of his hand loosened and he became still without breath.
The girl never once let him go because deep down in her heart she knew that he would not be just a memory, she knew he would come back. Although her knowledge consumed her, the girl still held on to the boy, crying, singing, and praying the storm away. Simultaneously, the girl looked out of the window where she saw his smiling face in the drops above. Every dropp of rain just became a tear on her face.
Suddenly, the girl became frightened because of a noise she had heard. With reapers surrounding the area, the girl quickly prayed again until they all disappeared. She thought they were there to take her love away, but they were there to let her know he would remain living. Gasping for air, the boy began to cough, letting the girl know that everything would indeed be all right. Slowly, the boy opened his eyes and stared into the girls. As the warmth of his body slowly came back, the girl hugged him as if never letting him go.
Letting him find a way back up, she whispered 'I Love You', and got out of the car as the rain poured onto her tearful face.~
