You Against Me - Poem by Helen C Capan

You against me in long-held embrace;
you against me, raindrops on your face;
you against me, it’s my heart’s hiding place.
And all I remember is you against me.

You wanted to talk with me that night,
but I let you leave without sharing a word,
Yet know that wasn’t my plan.
Your song broke my heart when I realized
that by you I’ll never be trusted again;
it’s best we get rid of the sham.
The phone waits so silently beside the door
that has opened to vanquish my vision of you,
but your unvoiced words tell me who I am.

You against me, in long-held embrace;
you against me, raindrops on your face;
you against me, it’s my heart’s hiding place.
And all I remember is you against me.

Now all that remains is you against me,
and all that is left is you against me.
All I remember is you against me,
but all that there is, is you against me.
