Finish Line

I waited for years
For you to stop running from Love
Though I cheered
With much fanfare for your steps
You
Were a cross-country runner
Hell bent
On seeing other Finish lines
It took
Some time to realize
You were
Never running towards mine
So with tears
I packed up my banners
Took down
The feast tables and drinks
Put away
The balloons and glitter
Finally
Understanding my heart deserved better
Than being
Just one of many
Finish lines
For a cross-country runner
Running from Love
