they hadn't spoken to each other since that night,
that night two years ago.
time had passed, they'd gotten older and wiser,
but the love was still there,
you could see it in both their eyes.
...it was raining,
they were standing under shelter together, catching up,
asking each other how their life has been,
"good" they both said,
but the truth is;
they were both miserable without each other.
she hadn't known the truth of that night,
the truth of why he ended it, she had to know,
it had been eating away at her for so long.
"why'd you leave?" she asked.
"i had too," he replied.
but that wasn't good enough.
she took a deep breath and walked out into the rain,
he ran after her and grabbed her.
"now you want to come after me?
i waited two years for you to come back,
and you didn't," she yelled.
"we were young and i was foolish,
i didn't know how to treat you,
every single day i'd find a new way to hurt you.
i didn't want to do that to you anymore,
i loved you and i still do love you.
did you think it was easy for me to put you through that?
i'm supposed to protect you from anyone hurting you,
and i couldn't even protect you from myself.
i needed to grow up and i have," he said.
he took her in his arms,
and kissed her♥
