It was all over the air, A tension, an increasing pressure; Which was an ominous feeling to bear, As the clouds gathered for a closure. The two days has been the same With restlessness of the air, so sultry; As unresolved conflicts went aflame Importance of affected egos turned paltry; Just an hour after night … Continue reading Down it poured.
