Run Away

We reach for the sun

yet our boughs burn before its touch

hundreds withering at the notion

of honestly having our desires.

Only in shadows do we dance

chasing love out of our hands

chasing ourselves into

another winter’s night.

  1. withering at the notion of honestyly having our desires….and then chasing love out…pretty crazy huh, finally getting what we thought we wanted and being afraid so we chase it out….hope you are doing well chris…

  2. Always good to read you Chris. Hope you’re doing well and are finding your bliss. I see this as a metaphor for the current political situation – and I see your pacific protest in its lines. Your work always stimulates my mind and imagination. Your images and metaphors always fresh. Gay

  3. Is this poem about the nature of humans to avoid pain and difficulty and do that which is easier? It’s making me think but will have to read a few times to try and grasp the meaning better. Good writing.
