Written by Jacob Ibrag

When things got too good, he couldn’t

handle it. He didn’t think he deserved her

and what she brought out of him. Solace.

Tranquility. State of peace. He wanted her,

but the past catches up faster than bullets.

That’s just the way it is, a rule that lacked

exception. So all of this laughter shared

 among the fire on this cold starry night

 was for nothing. He owed her his soul

so he wanted to bare it all, ‘I’ve been

hiding something from you.’ She

 moved in closer and smiled,

‘I already know.’
