POEM: Run-In with Love

You will run as I will run
And I always run back to you
After fretting dark corners
And unlit circles
It’s what I tend to do

I will run as you will run
Yet turning to say hello
I’ll ponder your thoughts
You’ll smile at mine
And then we’ll turn and go

You will run as I will run
In fear and in sheer love
Feeling brushes with confusing joy
And I will run as you will run
Like a timid girl and boy

You will run as I will run
In disgust and in delight
Confident one day
And nervous by noon
What’s next by and by?

I will run as you will run
Forgetful then awake
This is a game attending to love,
Contending with self
Impetuous love
We make
