Written all over him
was anger and resentment.
Feelings he was justified to have;

I knew I had hurt him,
but now,
the tables turned
He was going to hurt me.

Each step I took towards him
was filled with fear.
but I couldn’t stop moving
I was ready to get my share.

I had my eyes closed
because I couldn’t bear to see the rage in his eyes.

As I stood before him
expecting the fists to come tumbling down,
He took me by surprise.
He wrapped me in his hands
And whispered,
“I would never hurt you. I love you.”
