The man wrote the woman a letter saying he felt like they were starting to get closer again and that it made him laugh because in some ways it felt like they always had been.
He said sometimes he wanted to lie in bed with her, ensconced in their secret world and talking about the lyrics to Ring of Fire and Heroes.
That secret world wasn’t because of their circumstances but because of who they were together. He was certain if they lived together that people would recognize them as having one.
Because they really were two puzzle pieces that fit together and complimented each other. Cliche or not, the yin to the other’s yang.
Given comments people made he thought people already recognized how comfortable they could be around each other.
That made him laugh too because there were moments were he felt like they had actively tried to turn that part off, more for their own sanity than to not give anything away.
The more things changed the more some things stayed the same and the more convinced he was.
He was certain she was more than willing to kiss him and had to actively remind herself not to in public.
Because it felt natural and comfortable. Because they could melt the glaciers of the past and move right into raging fire.
Could be destiny. Could be chemical. Could be lots of things.
But he was certain she actively worked on keeping arms distance at times because if she didn’t the natural magnetism would pull them closer noticeably and imperceptibly.
It would just happen and then as the sparks would start to fly it would be noticeable and in the right situation all thing were possible.
I, I will be king
And you, you will be queen
Though nothing will drive them away
We can beat them, just for one day
We can be Heroes, just for one day
I, I can remember (I remember)
Standing by the wall (by the wall)
And the guns shot above our heads (over our heads)
And we kissed, as though nothing could fall (nothing could fall)
And the shame was on the other side
Oh we can beat them, for ever and ever
Then we could be Heroes, just for one day
Or something like that
