Runaway


This onset of pain
causes the eyes to sting
from pouring tears like rain,
the body to toss restlessly
to listlessly drudge on
through the days.

This same unyielding hurt
brings a freedom, rich-
causes the feet to itch,
to want to run, far enough
away to put space between
reality and longing dreams.
