Stars In The Night

You said never
And It was my own fault
You wouldn't trust me
How many times had we had that talk
Yelling at each other 
Fighting at night
Fighting for each other 
Does it matter who was right
I said never
And it was another's fault 
I wouldn't trust you
Another had broken my heart 
Clenching our fists
Straining not to hit the walls
Breaking through barriers
Clenching our jaws
You swore I wouldn't get in
I couldn't touch your heart
You looked into my eyes
Forgetting one essential part
You fell with a kiss
And when my tears first fell
When I opened your first 
And your fears first spilled
I looked into your eyes
Seeing what was hidden in the dark
The remainder of a flame
Beating in your heart
I'll cradle it's warmth
Till the embers glow bright
And your love burns
Like the stars in the night

    I love it when you express your gentle side Jay - funny though, when I absorb the sense of your compassion it tends to be accompanied by the close breath of volatile demand - its a beautiful contrast & wonderment - I wonder how possessive you'd be with such a fragile treasure -surviving fights with you could be so rewarding - I like how the tension is converted to caring - a lovely write - J.A.B. %
