Fear no more

She stands before him, prepared for battle
As she had done so many times before

He

Her most opposing, yet needed opponent
He is....
Her teacher

She has learned his teachings well , as relentless as they are
Yet not withstanding some compromise
Yet she remembers another time
When to him by choice she was... his most willing puppet

He had almost won that battle,  reducing her to nothing more than a shadow
existing only ........within his icy grip
He had underestimated her

Yet ... that it what in fact had saved her
With compassion today.....she stands strong
She no longer remains frozen within his grip

She readied herself for his attack
Rising high above out of the ashes, in hand,   her weapon of strength
Head on he attacks ..yet... she... drew first blood
As she and him engaged in battle, silently,
she thank him

For it was only by his constant attacks that she had become a warrior
His most willing student

For she had learned  his name

His name.....was fear

With him she walked side by side allowing his presence in her life
her compromise

To know love, she must except him
Yet never again, allow him
control
For both, she fought him as a warrior would
For she had learned his lessons well

(c) Raven Legros
Oh How I am afraid 2 love.
