A/N: I don't own the HG. Takes places in the cave during the Hunger Games.


After tonight,
Who knows where we'll be tomorrow,
What if we're never here again?

Katniss entwined her hands within Peeta's.

The touch was comforting,

And that's all she ever wanted.

After tonight,
This will be a lifetime ago
So let's stay up until the sky bleeds red.

A small touch of comfort,

To quell the uneasiness in her stomach.

Peeta was her source of comfort,

When she didn't know what tomorrow would hold.

And we'll stop stop stop the world from moving
Stop stop stop the grass from turning
Stop this night from fading away

She cuddles into his side, the warmth spreading throughout her.

She was frightened, scared that Peeta would fall asleep,

Only to never wake up again.

Her heart clenched at the thought.

This time is ours
If I could hold this moment in my hands
I'd stop the world from moving
I'd stop the grass from turning

But here, now, in this cave,

They were safe and sound.

Just the two of them.

This time is ours
inside a frozen memory of us
And we are motionless, motionless

His lips brushed hers, sending shivers down her spine.

It was perfection, everything good in the world,

Everything that she shouldn't have.

He pulled back.

Gone like a dream that I have just awoken from
Fading away, just out of reach
And we are here, but I already miss you
even as you're lying next to me

She stared into his eyes, her breath catching.

His face was so peaceful, as he stared at her.

She had found comfort in him.

They were surrounded by killing… murder..

And we'll stop stop stop the world from moving
Stop stop stop the grass from turning
Stop this night from fading away

She didn't want to be here…

She didn't want to die..

Or kill anyone…

This time is ours
If I could hold this moment in my hands
I'd stop the world from moving
I'd stop the grass from turning

Peeta hugged her tight,

As if he could read her mind.

"I'd stop it if I could,"

He whispered into the cold night.

This time is ours
inside a frozen memory of us
And we are motionless, motionless

"I would too,"

Katniss whispered.

It wasn't right,

And they both knew it.

And we'll stop stop stop the world from moving
Stop stop stop the grass from turning
Stop this night from fading away, fading away

His lips caught hers,

Sending chills down her spine.

It felt right,

As if the world had finally granted her some happiness.

She imagined they were somewhere else,

Visions of happiness swarming her mind.

This time is ours
If I could hold this moment in my hands

I'd stop the world from moving
I'd stop the grass from turning


Katniss repositioned herself,

So she was now hovering over his body.

His cheeks flushed, having her over him,

Caused him to inhale loudly.

This time is ours
inside a frozen memory of us
And we are motionless, motionless

Her lips captured his once more,

The two of them molding together perfectly.

The kiss lit them both on fire, sending sparks everywhere.

In this moment, neither cared that others were fighting,

Or that tomorrow could be their last day;

They only care for each other.

This time is ours.
