Poem: Run.

run_1_original

Run away from me.

Run, towards the tragedy

Of life all by yourself,

Denying yourself

Of quality companionship,

Of a grown-up relationship.
_____________________

There,

You’ve reached your destination:

The nation

Of desolation

And dissatisfaction.

You begin to call me,

My phone rings…
_____________________
I watch as the call ends,

As I choose to ignore

You begging to return

To my door.
_____________________

Run, run where your light

Will shine bright

On the memory of what might

Have been,

If you had chosen to be

A grown-up

With me.
