The sound of your fist hit my door,

along with the aggressive jiggle of the doorknob.

What followed was the sound of a key turning in the door,

which I forgot I had given you.

 

Your feet paced around my apartment,

almost as if the hardwood would break under your stomps.

I had never seen you with such anger,

but that suddenly changed when your hands wrapped around my neck.

 

Everything about you used to be so peaceful.

Your fingers would dance across my face,

tracing their way down my cheeks and onto my neck.

Your sandy hair tickled my body,

those ocean blue eyes swayed in the trance of mine.

You were the calm of my storm.

I always gave you the nod,

your green light to go.

 

Now I lie with your unwanted body on mine,

your fingers shattering my face,

forcing their way down my cheeks and onto my neck.

Your sandy hair made my body shiver,

those ocean blue eyes sending a wave of worry into mine.

I gave you a shake of the head,

your red light to stop.

As the light flickered from green to red,

you ran through the light,

speeding past the signal.
