i wrote a poem

i ran away before i could say goodbye to you

when you asked me, i said i had so much work to do

because i’d rather write a million poems about how i feel

than read just one out loud to you

    Yes, sometimes the words on the page convey all. Then we speak and spoil it all.

  • Nicholas Browning

    I will send you a virtual hug. Hang in there!
