Been tossing and turning all night
just as my weary eyelids begin to close
they reflect scenes of you and I struggling through our first fight
My mind replays the who what when and why
my head tells my heart not to break down and cry
cause it doesn’t understand how it can love you and ache to hate you at the same time
I want to stay angry so I scan my memories for reasons to leave you, to ignore you, to believe you
The more we talk the more I see
how important communication is to strengthen the bond between you and me
for it dissolves the mounds of fear built up over the years
from the deceit of those who could not love me
Yes I want to stay angry convincing myself its easier to be alone than in love
But you love me unconditionally and refuse to leave me be
A moment of weakness and you climb my wall
I finally take your call
Intentionally sending through words that you know will melt my heart
not to mention my other body parts
The next thing I know you’re at my door
and we’re holding each other with promises and whispers of forgiveness
as our clothes hit the floor
Our lips meet and I forget what all that arguing was for
We come together and become one
As I surrender
