My path, hidden by a veil of tenebrous clouds, allows only slivers of golden rays to pass that barely lights my way. The birds flying over, coo, echoing mourning cries. Fighting the chill in the air, I wrap my arms around myself, attempting to warm my shivering body.
Suddenly, I see him, the one I have been running from for so long; the one who raped me, leaving me shamed, terrified and vulnerable. I want to run up to him and claw his eyes out.
Instead, I continue walking, keeping my head down, hidden from his cruel and lecherous eyes.
