Wish Breaker

branches

The howling of the wind brought the wish breaker to his window. It tapped on the glass once, twice. His fingers fell on the latch, and in a mist of night rain, it entered. It snatched at his dreams and threw them to the floor. There was a miserable fury in its eyes as they shattered. Each shard carried within it a crystalline tear. When the storm passed, he slept on a sea of broken wishes.
