She appeared abruptly
like summer rain without clouds
he tried hiding,
but couldn’t escape,
and the rage
bellowing from her fierce eyes
accosted him with silence,
and that piercing gaze
turned his countenance
into some shade of pallor,
he was perspiring head to toe
and his jaws were gnashing his teeth,
showing desperation,
to elude and run
but there was nowhere to go,
nowhere to hide,
and he met his fate
for running blind,
and for everything he promised,
but never did
and above all
for leaving her in pain
