Running

Wrapped in brown paper
they sent me off
and away-
I could not see
when I flew over
your house
waving
or the ocean
or the park

It was too dark
but I smelled you there
you call it nonsense
voodoo
a trick-
baby-
like animals
I could sense you
anywhere

Even out of sight
of those wild
eyes of yours
hypnotizing me
into slumber for
years
not seeing anyone
but you-
was that
trick or treat

Always me on top
you managed to tie me
to you- even with
your ankles shackled
my demands
usurped
by your terms-
anarchy

An uprising
of the most personal
and nothing
could keep me from you
giving up sustenance
maybe my life
until I cut loose
running

What was to be done
about that double bond-
I ran you
you ran
circles about me
separated only
by flesh ripping
hearts breaking

One thought on “Running

Give me your two cents
