Just Run

Run you said.

Run.

Your streetlight eyes
Gleaming through the night.
I would’ve listened,
But my feet were stuck to the pavement
And my heart had gone dead.

Run.

You said it again
The word fell off your blunt,
Sullen tongue.
Foreign and familiar.
Bleeding but alive,
On your chaste breath.

Just run.

Beautiful work!! (I know you know that, given that everyone else has said it, but still.) I love the description, and the spacing. It gives the poem great tone! Keep writing!
