Run Away Home

A new poem. Just trying out something new. Lemme know how it works.


Run Away Home

You really wanted to keep running last summer, didn’t you?
Didn’t you wonder if things would somehow turn out right
Even if you did take a little vacation

Just an unannounced several day road trip
Out to the Michigan beaches
Or to a private spot just on the wrong side of the Mexican border
One you know Marcy would never have wanted to visit even if you’d offered to pay for you both

Is it hard to admit that you’re scared because the whole thing was a little easier than you’d feared
More interesting, denser
Did you decide that you liked eating out more than you thought you did
Or maybe you’ve realized that waking up warm is always better
And being in love is too
