being in love

he was like a hurricane
and she like shelter
he destroyed everything he came in contact with
and people in distress found security in her presence.

they were opposite
and they were attracted.
people told her he would destroy her
and she knew he would 
but giving him the security he needed -
was more important than her own.

he found stability in the circle of her arms
the storm within him calmed
and she found peace 
when he rested his head on her shoulder
she gave up all she had,
gave up her identity, to be one with his
because for her that's what love was.

they were opposite
and they were attracted.
and then, they became inseparable.
