Why Such A Sad Sound?

rain trickles down the gutter
as the world sleeps
a sad sound

a sound of loneliness
a sound of reminders
a sound resonating the day's events
flashing in my mind

the angry words
the heartache
the unfinished comfort
echoed in falling drops

just me and the already fallen rain
waiting to evaporate
into nothingness

Rain falling down tin with the ability to resonate heartache.
