his words were like rain, irresistible through the night,
pattering, softly, wearing away at where the drops of words hit.
the rain wore away at the stone shield of the girl, so desperately to stay untouched by his words.
he wore through to her core, eventually.
and his words, like rain, just lie rain, were pattering away, wearing the victim down.
and slowly, she succumbed to the pull of his words.
and slowly, she was lost to the world.
