As we sat together,
I saw flashes of the past
colliding with the present.
Searching in the depths of your eyes
I saw fear, and love.
Best of all hope.
An olive branch was given,
and we both desperately clung to it.
I started to tremble.
You used a facade to protect yourself from me.
Afraid of the damage I could and have inflicted.
All we wanted was us.
Pure and simple.
It came to the deciding moment.
Fight or flight forever?
We both prepared for battle.
