Only an empty echo remained within her.
Then he flowed into her life.
His wave was strong and endless.
She kept her heart hidden, still leaking from fresh cracks.
But, the drowning from him was inevitable.
A selfless woman who lived for others.
Generosity nourished her.
But, too many men depleted her spirit.
A final bucket emptied her for good.
She would let no one drink again.
Then he entered her life.
He cared to quench her thirst alone.
A love that overflowed her.
Her emotional well was full again.
She welcomed his hand and went to drink for herself this time.
