Dedicated to the one who can’t be named.
I can clearly remember the tension during
The early stages of our budding relationship.
We met by chance and were coerced to interact
With each other despite our protests.
You had a way of lifting one eyebrow
Which I believe was meant to intimidate me on purpose;
Add that to your towering height and masculine build.
But here’s the thing, I felt a small triumph
Every time you do it because I had made you stop
This slighting way of talking over me.
I definitely made you aware that I wasn’t
The least bit afraid and that I can engage
In banters regardless of the topic.
To both of us, we presented a challenge.
