Where did you go?
Was it not for fear than what then?
Did you take the long way home?
The beautiful scenery makes me forget for a while
Feeling trapped in your soul.
Walking should calm your restlessness.
Seeing the ruby throated sparrows singing their song.
Canopy trees covered over the road sprinkling sunshine.
Our hateful words last night were slept on before we talked it out.
We both knew better but broke the unwritten rules.
Now I’m running towards the long way home.
Scared of reaching the fork in the road before I reach hurt
