He Ran - Poem by Vera Sidhwa

He ran around her heart.
He ran forward
And he ran back.
But he couldn't keep track.

Why he ran so much,
Why he ran so slow,
Then so fast,
He did not know.

Which was the better,
The coming or the going?
Which was the better,
The going or the coming?

This man couldn't,
Figure this out.
So he ran all his life,
Around and about.

    Where he waited
    Untill dawn
    For the look on
    Her face...iip
    That looks
    Into the mirror
    to soon.
