As the dust settled in your wake,
It riled up every past mistake.
I witnessed a fleeting moment of chaotic hell
Followed by a settling feeling of calm,
Unending, assuring and warm.
On the lull before the storm.
I could rest now,
Far from the weary exchanges,
Of bitter words and sour thoughts,
Of ego clashes and compromises.
The battle of the hearts
Was fought and won
And lost and retreated,
All at once and
Once and for all.
I can put my beating heart to rest now.
