Cancerian Moon

I dreamt last night
that we—
arch enemies
sworn adversaries—
were alone in a room
 
Through something I can't explain
the wall between us was felled
crumbled by a force
greater than anything I'd ever felt
 
I don't know what overtook me
in that moment
but I reached out
and hugged you
tightly
 
Told you that I was sorry
for hurting you in any way
you said, 'Me too'.
 
It was that simple
so easy to let bygones
dissipate and become
what they were meant to be
 
The door opened
and people entered
 
You scooted close to me
to free up seats for them
we giggled
like schoolgirls
and were threatened
with separation
if we didn't quit
 
Which, of course
the rebel in each  
we'd now come to accept
burst out laughing instead  
 
It was the most beautiful thing
I could ever remember hearing
