In his mind, tensions snapped at last,
and the dam collapsed helplessly, ushering in
the ferocious floods that raged over the nation
and brought forth ceaseless torment to his fragile ways
And so he made ardent love to his mistress that night,
caressing the warm pale skin that he declared his,
losing himself in her titillating embrace
and comforting bosom, and for a second he
had forgotten of the disaster, enveloped
and reassured by that remarkable feminine spirit.
She reached out to feel for his emotions, but
could not locate them, and at once
saw with dismay that she had been used
merely as stress relief, the medium through which
he obtained his superficial endorphins,
lacking genuine emotional attachment in the process.
