A Lifetime Between Us

I run toward nothing

I have nowhere to go but I’m running

away from the person you think I am

away from the shadow you say I cast

my heart getting weaker the further I go

there is no voice calling my name

no soul missing mine

my blood is useless

it means nothing to anyone anymore

soon I will be far away

nothing will bring me back

life will have stretched the whole distance

from where I was to where you left me

a lifetime too late

    1. Thank you. I thought about you today. Hoped you were doing well. Miss the back and forth. A metaphor for the distance I’ve already gone and for no reason. So far away already from being together if that makes sense.

      1. It makes perfect sense. What I’m trying to say is that I know people who run… for no reason. It’s illogical. It makes me wonder what makes people want to start on the process in the first place… Is it just as simple as trying to find a better place?

      2. You’re right, find a better place and I have. I get mad sometimes with the loss of time over something I don’t even know the origin of. We are running at the speed of light in opposite directions. Sad. This poem was a result of that thought. Happy Sunday…stay golden.
