Have You Ever?

by Cassie Walters


Dry tears race from my swollen eyes.

Have you ever

run, legs stretched, to get away.  You

        felt so ashamed.

You clutch your means, and leave, and

        you just can’t

find the right words to tell.  Goodbye.

        stay here,

“No!” You bust through the door,

        but then you find

a veiled path guides you off the beaten way, and

        something so divine

catches your swollen eye and you break to get a better look.  Now

        you can’t bear to leave?
