And it was glorious while it lasted, she thought:


The honest, earthy smell of the sheets the mornings after,

The way her fears could disperse on the breeze of his smile.


Eventually, as these things happen,

It was lost in a fire of temper and a wave of hot, bitter tears —


And she wondered if she would ever again

Have a love so elemental.
