A Drabble From a Rabble - Twenty One

 Today's drabble is inspired by something I vaguely remember from a documentary I watched years ago.

 The theme is snow.

West of Java

 It’s too warm.

 Lazing on the chaise, staring at the ceiling, cooking in my own skin.

 My mind’s cooked in my head and I can feel my nerves boiling.

 Warm wind blew loose strand of hair into warm sweat.

 This must be what Hell feels like.

 I want to go home, back to cold north with the snow.

 I turn onto my side and stare out of the window.

 My mind was already broken, the white flakes falling from the sky were no surprise.

 But when I ran to touch them, they didn’t disappear.

 Even the snow is warm here.
