Sweet people

always make

a strong impression

on her.

She met two other ones

just last week.

They are mountains

in human form.

When they get in

the conversation

you are ready

to fight,

to show

who you are.

But, with two sentences

and one gaze

they have already

won the battle.

They take the sword 

and you want

to tell them everything,

to run away

in their arms,

to switch, 

to be them.

It is disarming,

their sweetness.
