I really wanted to add a picture to this…I’m just very lazy.  Here’s a little something I wrote yesterday…



If I were to run away
Would you follow?
Would you be weak?
And leave me hollow?

Because right now
I need a lost desire
When hope leaves me
Treading through mire

Would you run after me
If I were to run and hide
Or would you release me
Wash away with the tide?

Because I need to know
Your love is strong enough
To keep me safe with you
That you’ll remain tough

I need to always know
That you’ll stay true
Despite any messes
I may put you through

If you can’t do this for me
Please let me go and run
Let me go in that final peace
Underneath the blistering sun

  1. Hi Diana,
    This poem is beautiful.
    For myself I feel a longing for security in your words.
    I resonate with many lines you wrote. For me the feelings you express in this piece are ones I think we all feel when we are in a deep relationship with someone. We all need to know deep down that everything is going to be okay.
    That’s what I was left with after reading. The need to be okay.
    Thank you as always for sharing your wonderful poetry.
    Tiki 🙂

    1. Hi Tiki!

      Thank you for your wonderful thoughts on the piece.

      The word “running” wouldn’t leave my side, and I knew I had to write something down before I forgot it LOL.

      But seriously, you’ve hit it spot on with how I’m feeling.
