Sixteen

16


i'm looking down at my worn shoes
they are scuffed
and splitting down one side.
left
then right
left appears
then right
I'm counting my steps and hurrying
myself along
I need to beat it
because I can't deal with the pain that I will feel
if I lose the race.

and so I hear it
behind me but across the way
hurry, hurry my feet because
we have to get home before dark

and so my race begins
and love flies on by
waving an invisible wave
and my heart breaks
into a million pieces
and then gets sucked up
to be spit out
in tiny shards
into my soul
but remember that we still have
to get
home before
dark.

I felt the need to write something, and for now, this is all I have.
