Run Away - Poem by Lilli Singh
You ask me to wait,
By our place in the woods.
The sight of your face,
Gladdens me more than it should.
You take my hand,
Your eyes whisper a vow.
Your voice; a caress on my face,
Tells me 'come with me now'.
My mind is an immense conflict,
Of my head versus my heart.
Your embrace speaks of promises,
A new place, a new start.
My hand slips down to my stomach,
Cradling the tiny creature inside.
I want, no NEED, nothing more,
Than to be your wedded bride.
But I have a mother to look after,
And a father who loves me a lot.
Tears stream rivers down my cheeks,
In my throat, my breath is caught.
The pools of emotion in your eyes,
Reflect grief that can only be mine.
I finally find my voice.
A whisper, 'Give me time'.
One last kiss.
As you turn and walk away,
A whisper in the wind:
'Maybe I'll see you again some day'
