he sits in the corner,
head on his knees,
struggling to hold back tears.
his vision darkens,
a stratus cloud
over a once beaming sun.
a droplet of saltwater skates
from the corner of his eye,
dribbling down his face
and landing on a 
sepia page,
a photograph,
blossoming until it engulfs 
his face and spreads to that 
of his once smiling wife.
tossing the image to the floor,
he lets out a primal moan
that rocks the world.

    Replying: The word limit is the maximum amount of words allowed, although, if you go a little above, that is okay. There is no minimum, though.
