Chasing Fear

I slide my running shoes on
every time
adoration nears.

Slipping out the door,
before your kiss lands
my feet hit pavement-
kicking rocks
behind my heels.

Sending hope           past
your grip.
Leaving you clutching
a love-note
unfinished inside your chest.

Gasping for air,
you call out.

My ears, deafened-
a fortress of wind
protects from the words
brushing skin.

Leaving me raw
from the shear persistence
it takes
to keep you


I race on.
Forgotten prizes,
at the starting line.

Your door:
love’s promise.
Too alluring to inspire
anything, but
a sprint.
