Moon shines down upon us
Water sparkles below
Wind whistles by our ears
Just missing our faces

We’ve gotten so close
Gone through so much
Escaped

So far

Must continue for
Fear of stopping and
Potentially
Getting caught

Near to our
Destination
Caution lies forgotten
On the dirt path

Pass the border
Want to let out
Feelings
But don’t

Turning around
And
Calling you into the safety
Of the shadows

You come
Closer
To me, reaching out
And they come

They come
And take you away
Want to scream,
But don’t

Only watch
As you are lost to me





forever
