Too soon, Too late`It's so depressing lying in bed for hours, trying to get comfortable enough to fall asleep. The sound of the furnace blowing the warm air into your room and the little blue nightlight you have on the wall is a constant reminder of why it's so hard to sleep. You're glad you're wrapped up in your blue blanket, warm and tired after a long day. But you can't sleep. That hollow void inside you is as sharp as the winter's bitter air against your bare cheeks. You've spent your life trying to fill that empty void with material possessions and friends who always said they cared. You're like one big puzzle with a tiny missing piece. You're incomplete. No matter the size of the piece of the puzzle it's so ugly in the eye of the beholder that when they look at that void they cringe and walk away, trying to forget they ever saw that hollow body with a smiling face.

The end'Her eyes filled up with wonder as the world slowly began to crumble. The rattle of the pipes in the building were nothing but a remote noise in the background of her inquisitive mind. Forced breaths came out loudly and startled the black cat sitting near the fireplace.Pale fists tightened around the railing of her fire escape. The moon was covered in wings of angels; each one glistened as she watched them fall.A loud explosion stunned her and she lost her balance.The wings of angels are scattered on the ground.
