April was the month and bright it was

In the fiery warmth and the shade

I was struck with lightning

A lightning with no thunder

It was only a flash of light I thought

But I had taken a vow long time back

I would never hurt you

I don’t know if I had said a no

Would it have hurt you

But if I didn’t say a yes

I knew it would definitely kill you

How could I take a chance

That was my sacrifice

What was yours?
