We shared silent tears,
about futility and fate
How long it would take
before we could be one

together forever
away from the fear
he inspired in us.
But escape was a ruse

we used to fool ourselves.
No matter the miles
between he and us
his darkness overshadowed

the light we ran towards.
We could not move forward
fast enough,far enough
to shake him from our tracks

He had a nose for weakness
divided us through threats
of harm, until back to his arms
she went, for my defense I think.

Now I look over my shoulder
wondering if the trail grows colder
or if he still smolders in hatred
at the the love she and I once had.
