A Poem

All I ever wanted was for her to love me

Or so I thought

Until I got it

Then I ran

So fast that it felt like flying

Such a rush

All I ever wanted was for her to hold me

Within her arms

And sing to me

A lullaby

Then look at me

In a soft way

And cry for me

Those tears of joy

And tell me she was proud of me

But when she did

I ran away

I ran so fast

Under the stars

I couldn't take that kind of love

And so I run from love like that

I run so far and run so fast

No one can catch me

I run into alleys and laugh my head off

I sit and stare at walls in silence

I feel a numbness in my soul

And nothing else

I never want a soul to love me

For then I never have to feel again

And then I can run amongst the shadows

Embracing darkness as my friend

Then I never have to hurt again

And I can laugh

Knowing my tragic end

It‘s all I ever wanted
