Same Old Song

Waiting for the class to be over, he glazed the clock at the damp wall that was almost dripping water; he decided not to check the time as it was not passing. He tried to listen to the teacher who was telling God knows which subject, however, since his somnific voice in this rainy melancholic day, he got lost in the deepest places in his mind.
