Like rain from the skies above,
trickling along like creeks,
depth of parched earth as it seeks;
priceless jewels glistened a while,
fore running dry on her cheeks,
leaving behind salty streaks...
She had showered pristine love
seeking delight not dejection
yet met apathy not affection;
False was her fervor, fake her smile
mask of ebullience she wore with poise,
life was a blend of heart-breaks and joys...
Her deepest feelings poured out,
her dreams, desires and doubts;
pearls of her soul, it's semblance,
gems they were of her essence.
Her heart lightened, she sighed,
she was ready to brave the tide...
