Let’s Run Away

I’ve never seen you before,

I don’t know you-

And yet

If you told me

You see me

Like the silver lining

On your ever present

Gloomy cloud

You hear me

Like the wind

Whispering the secrets

Of life into your ear

You feel me

Like your heartbeat

As your blood rushes

Through your veins

You know me

Like the abandoned home

You lived in through your adolescence

With the fondest memories

I’d drop

e v e r y t h i n g

Leave it all (behind)

At the chance

Of running away with you

For the rest

Of

Our

Lives.

Coffee With A Friend

“It’s so good to see you-

You look great!

More importantly, you look happy.”

You agree with a suspicious and silent nod

But a smile turns up the corners of your mouth

As you take a sip from your coffee

And the desirous heat from your mug

Accentuates your blushing cheeks

Instead of hiding them.

You take an exaggerated sigh in preparation

Then begin to tell me your latest story.
