It was on a rainy day that she said no
Lack of ambivalence
She uttered the monosyllable in a gentle tone

Unattainable or over-rated?
She didn’t wait for the answer
Or she was almost certain to have heard
The echo that pressed onto her heart

Left in a rush without a hush
She let the heavenly water cleanse her skin
Bereft of solitude
She rejoiced at the gentle touch

There was no sense of an ending
Yet all is beyond lost
All of a sudden she realized
Her umbrella was left in the past
