From My Condo On The 10th Floor Read Count : 77

Sitting in my chair on the balcony of my skyscraper I face the pouring rain and look up at the gloomy sky. I observed it wasn't the gloomy I liked, it was the gloomy that filled my heart I made it empty at the same time I wasn't cold though it was pouring. I listen to the distant buzzing below me and the pitter patter of the rain on the floor of my 10th floor balcony. The light from inside my condo casted my shadow forth or shall I say, projected my shadow onto my balcony floor. I stared off into to the horizon at the lighthouses, I couldn't see the river at the end of horizon anymore the fog had settled I could only see the scattered orange-yellow glow of the light from inside the faraway condos. I stared that the blinking lights of the lighthouse for a long time counting the five second intervals between them in my head until I grew tired of it. I looked up at the sky again 'twas  dark now,  the grey clouds were now a very dim orange-pink . .. I don't want to set the world on fire by the ink spots was currently playing, i had been listening to 90's songs slowed down to somehow make the time pass slower than it already was passing. "I've lost all ambition for worldly acclaim. I just wanna be the one you love" I smile at that verse in the song because though the dark clouds cast a gloommyness upon the day, and the fog was covering up the river...the rain was warm against my skin, the lights from the faraway skyscrapers winked at me and my heart appreciated the soft nostalgic music. And at that moment... I couldn't have wanted more.
