The booming sounds pound near my bedroom window. The glaring lights flashed brightly in my face. The heavy rain thumped on the rooftops like bullets. The storm went nonstop.
Until now. The thunderous noise stopped. The flashing lights ceased. All was silent except the rain. The heavy rain turned light and sweet. It was as if the raindrops were dancing on the roof. As I lay, I hear the soft rain in sporadic measures. Singing me to sleep like a lullaby. drip drip. That was the rain that fell lightly from the leaves. drip drip. That was all I heard before the world turned into a deep, dark silence.
