In the background you stood never quite there

Until the day we met and the tempers that flared

An argument ensued spiced by betrayal

Opposing views fought tooth and nail

The embers burned and anger become passion

Strongly held opinions love quickly surpassing

Frightening at times as two sparks became flame

Devouring us both till only one shape remained

Tangled and spent time that passed in a blur

Yet wrecked in days without finding a cure

Forces of nature then turned and twisted

Unleashed on each other until all was wasted

A time now remembered for the bliss not the pain

Something so primal it was impossible to tame
