Runaway

A bright spark
Glistening of the sun
Over the horizon
Is the chance

Tightly holding onto memories
You jump
Looking back
Seeing your past

Running, running
Farther, far away
Weary
Emptiness

Closing over your heart
A single tear
Falling softly
Is it you?

Standing
Turning
Stopping
Then tilting upwards

I will stay
Simple words
Hurts you, cuts you
Choose

Holding a small trinket
A small piece of memory
It smiles, nods
Continue

Flowing river
Abandoned boat
Bending down
Writing

Sweetheart is the name
Scratched words
A shiver
You sit


Holding your memory
Hugging
Loving
Why did you leave?

Remembering
Sun rising once more
Glistening as always
And you walk forward, alone

Shouts
Callings
I need my loved one
Back

Stepping back
You think
Hurting them
Them, who you are close to

Sideways glance
At the loved ones
Sorrow
Yet you walk onward

Hours
Days
Months…
Years

Then upon a single step
A touch
Someone sees
You

Saying
I saw life
In that soul
But in shatters

Music
Listens
You shroud away
From the light


This is your life
What you choose
Is your decision
Will you traipse forth?

Setting sun
Lies you entwined in
Haunts you, bites you
My runaway
