She hid from him


locked doors 

and closed windows

In rooms of undecorated wall

and unpolished floors

She hid from him

On uncrowded streets
in plain sight she hid herself
in a deliberate unavailable

for years

now, she trapped

Trapped in layers of issues

that have grown too old and too stale
to recall their origins


she is tired

 too tired to trace

the tracks

that led her to where

she at


to find her way back

She hid from him
She hid, well for far
too long

She hid from him

    Great write, been there myself, but am slowly starting to get back in the game

  • SharonMoemise

    Very beautifully written, yet so sad. A great lesson in love and loss and how time plays a huge role in everything we do or don't do. Keep writing. Love it

    Very true words.
