She caught him

just in time

to quickly turn

and walk the other way

She didn’t dare

take a second glance

no need to check twice

she knew

she knew full well

down in her bones

in the way her stomach

twisted at the sight

and her hands clenched tight

but it was not

the time or the place

to speak her mind

so she chose

to flee

instead of fight

to trust her instincts

and what she saw

what she felt

and she knew

full well

that she would never

step inside those doors
