live, laugh, love! ;)

fight fear

She remembers-
standing rigidly, moving fluidly,
knuckles smarting, muscles burning,
a thud, a groan
staring up from the floor-
his gaze unyielding.

He remembers-
the held breath, the release,
elegant storm breaking,
admiration, distraction
a wince, reflex, regret-
her glare defiant.

They watch, curious-
As she learnt hurt to stay safe,
Wore bruises to seem strong,
So she wouldn’t stare up again
-in helpless horror
