A Poem

–For RWH

I said I love you,

But it’s not so,

My feelings confuse me,

I only know


That somehow you caught me,

And I must go.

It’s not a game, and

I’m not prey, so


Let’s try to see

Ourselves as though

Our hearts were mirrors

Of things below.


The surface confuses me.

I cannot know

What’s in your heart.

My fears show


Me running away,

As fast as I can go.

But this time, can I stay

Away from you, even so?
