2 years..Two long years I spent running behind Him, picking up after Him, chasing Him
Crying to his back
I watch the back of His head grow smaller,
His transgressions grow taller
Why won't you let me catch you? Love you? Keep you? Hold you?
You treated me so badly, I had no choice but to scream, lecture, threaten and scold you!
Around and around, some endless child's torturous game...
Because my love won't unlatch, won't let go
I have love to blame
You fight me
You slap me
You beat me
You bite me
My love and my feet stay planted
I'm running behind you full speed ahead
and you stop. We crash into each other and fall to the floor
You stretch your hand out to me
I bat it away
Strange....fully wanting but never expecting this day
Can you see me?
The shadow of a woman invisible takes form
You see me
I am beautiful, real, long suffering
I've been waiting for you
And now..Now that you know me, want to hold me, love me, keep me
I glare at you, at your audacity
That now, you finally love me
I calmly stand erect and brush myself off and revel in my win
I turn around and bolt away
Let the marathon begin
