It Pours

by Destiny | Score: 3300

Rain fell heavily outside, hitting the windowpane as if it were hale. I watched as it pours down the frame like tears. 
I sat watching for minutes, hours. Not moving, not speaking, there was no point. What could I do? What could I say? Well, besides fiddle with the lone playing card on my desk I could think of nothing else to do but watch the rain.
I was on the verge of losing everything, I lost my job the only thing helping me stay afloat for so long. Now I would lose my apartment, and by extension, my girlfriend, she wouldn't want some broke homeless pansy. Like a shark searching for blood she'll latch on the next man she sees with money to spare, I don't even know why she gave me any light and day, to begin with, she was way out of my league. 
I guess she just saw the potential that wasn't there.
I could hear the static of my neighbors radio, it was cutting in and out badly due to the weather. They must have fallen asleep before they turned it off. How you could sleep through that, to begin with, I have known I idea.
Lightning struck close enough to rattle my insides, and the little lamp I had on the desk next to me went off, yeah,yeam
