His sudden arrival

at my door instigated

a flood of memories

some sweet but mostly bitter

we just stared

at each other wordlessly

each immersed in a

cauldron of criticism

before unleashing

a barrage of accusations

as I shed copious amount of tears

he stood helplessly wavering, hesitant

and the moment of reconciliation

passed forever.
