a runner.



there are some things that hurt.

the soft sound piano keys make,
the feeble winter frost,
the busyness of living. 

those things bring a sadness to my heart,
something i run from.

am i a runner? or do i stay?

i've wondered about that.
i'd like to say that i'd stay,
i'd like to say i'm brave.

but i am not.

i am a runner.

and when you stared me in the eye,
pleading for me to let you run as hard as you could,
i saw myself. 

she said it was harder to stay,
and i laughed at her in the face.
to stay.
anyone could do that.

i don't think so now. 

it takes a strength to bear the stillness.
one that i do not have.

one that i do not have. 

i've already stayed too long
it's time for me to go.
