Suddenly

Suddenly she was here.
Gently she came, like the warm breezes of a mid-summer’s morning.

Suddenly a dark shadow drifted in, like a cold fog of dreary gray.
It covered her heart and squelched her heating love.

Suddenly she was gone.
He had swept her away, like the frigid winds of a black mid-winter’s night.

Yes, quite a lament.

Makes me think of old Willie Blake:

"The solitary worm that flies in the night

In the howling storm

Has found out thy bed of private joy..."
