Raindrops

Dark clouds loom over the horizon and the howl of the wind feels like the shrieking of haunted souls. The lights have gone out as well. I light a candle and sit beside the window.

Missing Identity

Handcuffed and blind folded, he was dragged outside his cell; his face covered with unruly beard, the little bit of cloth that he had on his upper body tattered revealing the marks of torture.
