Run Away
Run Away (I found myself writing)

I woke up in a distant place
The flowers still in bloom
The white stone walls so pure
And winsome in their way.
There were miles and miles
Of strangers smiles
Which knew me once before
This familiar me was looking
For wanted evermore.
I left myself for dead
In the arms and charms
Of a strangers bed
But in my sleep
I couldn't keep
My promise.
Secrets hidden deep
Remain my unsent letters
This no man's land seen only
By my betters.
There is no love in the let go
But strong survives in hedgerows
Sway gaily in their play.
I left this other me
Behind it's walls and longings
In the leap to eternity.
I sat beneath my mother
Her ballet was so inviting
Gold and green and sunshine
and found myself writing.
Author's Notes:
I went to France for a while last year. I was not too well. It made me see things differently.

Dear John-
Life catches us staring at ourselves sometimes-
And if we're looking, well that is when we truly face our reflection-
This will make us either cringe or smile--
I liked this-
Best Wishes to You and Yours My friend~
