The Ballad of Two Lovers.

She says don’t.

He says don’t stop.

She says don’t you dare.

He says don’t stop no matter what.

She says don’t you dare hurt me.

He says don’t stop no matter what you may hear.

She says don’t you dare hurt me with that pathetic excuse.

He says don’t you dare stop no matter what you may hear from behind you.

She says don’t you dare hurt me with that pathetic excuse; be a man.

He says don’t you dare stop no matter what you may hear from behind you; just keep running.

She says don’t you dare hurt me with that pathetic excuse; be a man and go stand up for me.

He says don’t you dare stop no matter what you may hear from behind you; just keep running until you are safe.

She says don’t you dare hurt me with that pathetic excuse; be a man and go stand up for me, even if it may cost you your life.

He says don’t you dare stop no matter what you may hear from behind you; just keep running until you are safe and they can never harm you.

She says don’t you dare hurt me with that pathetic excuse; be a man and go stand up for me, even if it may cost you your life so that I can keep mine.

He says don’t you dare stop no matter what you may hear from behind you; just keep running until you are safe and they can never harm you, even if that means never seeing me again.

She says don’t you dare hurt me with that pathetic excuse; be a man and go stand up for me, even if it may cost you your life so that I can keep mine (even though all this is my fault).

He says don’t you dare stop no matter what you may hear from behind you; just keep running until you are safe and they can never harm you, even if that means never seeing me again (even though all this is your fault).

Kyle’s day 10 poem for NaPoWriMo where he breaks away from the prompt of the day and instead writes something inspired by the poem “Sunshower“.

A story has two sides. The way it starts may not be the way it ends. And sometimes your preconceived notions may influence your judgement before you hear the whole story.
