Running From Love - Poem by Sylvia Chidi

Running from love
Yes you are running from love
You run like a wild fox
On bare feet without socks
Frightened of fear
But fearless without care
A sip of liquor
A smoke of cigar
Yes indulge for we are about to change things
And see what joys or sorrow they may bring
Here is my love for us to enjoy and burn

Running from love
Yes! You are running from love
The next day you wake up
And all your dreams stop
You go back to your old ways
Dancing the same tune day by day
You are back in familiar sounds and smells
And loneliness eats into you as hard as hell
But you will never be ready for those wedding bells
For that fearful fear is instilled inside you so well
You live in a bubble that's why love has turned

Yes! You were once running from love
Yes! You are now running from love
Yes! You have always been running from love
And tomorrow you will still be running from love

    A well written poem. But what is that 'fearful fear' that keeps him running from love and wedding? (Report) Reply
