In the unkindness of an evening filled with thunderstorms, a feeling of aversion came over my weeping spirit.
In that hour, thirst and hunger were much sweeter than the bitter taste of betrayal sitting upon my lips…from the flavorless kiss of the woman whom I thought loved me.
The beautiful star that once brought her to me now hides itself behind clouds of darkness filled with never-ending rain.
My loving heart has been ridiculed by smiles of deceit, along with the scent of a stranger upon my lover's person.
Sadly, I shall accept my sorrow and cry to my heart's fulfillment, but joyfully, I will celebrate the victory of knowledge that enlightened my heart and caused me to turn away from the woman clothed with lies.
