Promissory Route

When the season turned rainy
She wished to wake only when sun turned shiny

She slept and woke up bit late
As the sun was blinded and woke up late

Rains flooded around in dark
She thought of gone sun again and slept back stark

Sun never seemed to light though
She got up with a stirred heart with painful throe

Sun however did come next
Promising for a fresh season with new text

Cheated she rose up to sun
Went his way, burnt herself, paid off his run
