The Promise

He escaped on a tempestuous night, into the
arms of a tempestuous woman. His last reprieve,
last woman, last night.

This woman, both lover and officer, will kill him.
One day shy of his one year sentence, he reached
her. Passion unquenchable, will indomitable, word
non-negotiable, he kept his promise:
He never misses her birthday.
