Against Despair

An empty howl of pain clings to the wall. Cold tears of anger burn with violence as fists thunder, threatening Armageddon to everything in its path. The creatures flee from the flourishing maelstrom of despair.

Haplessness sets in, but the eye appears.

A soft voice whispers resolve through its soothing lullaby. Warm tears extinguish pain as loving hands embrace like determined flower pedals in the rain. The typhoon simmers, leaving bittersweet melancholy.

Together they embrace, his bruised hands hold her shell-shocked body as they mourn a loss.
