when your fist connected with my jaw i knew i would never forget you (day twenty eight)

when your fist connected with my jaw i knew i would never forget you

they say that we have more similarities than differences

you make that hard to believe on most days

once
we almost spoke the same language of hammer fists
to see who would swing harder
who would break first

you won

similarity number one

i wanted to stop counting after that because i was afraid of what else i would learn about myself with how far you would push me

don’t like being pushed

similarity number two

had to keep going because i like counting too much

similarity number three
which is where we began to separate

you counted down the next moment you got to snap over nothing
waiting for that excuse

i counted how many times i laughed at myself after our encounters
how many times i smiled after the long days
after the fear
the adrenaline rushes
after you never backed down from your threats
and i never showed you how scared i was

i was feeling it
but i would never tell you that
