The rooster trumpets the dawn as the delicate web of frost melts to droplets of dew and the birds begin their early morning chorus. The piercing pulse of the alarm shatters my dreams and pulls me into the reality of another day. The sun shoots angular rays into the grey dusty air of the chilly room, while the sleepy world cranks up its engine and warms up its brain. The cold hard floor shocks my feet as the needles of the sun jab at my eyes. Another day has begun. Another day... without her... again.
