She Always Leaves

Walking Away by Alongwayfromhome

it’s her way –
keep ’em guessing,
no roots to untangle,
no pledge of allegiance,
“arms length, my girls”
– always leave room
for escape

a wink is as good as a nod to
those blind to her wounded, wounding ways

crumbs satisfy the love-starved
for but a moment,
then the moment’s gone

and in the end –
she always leaves!

  1. I don’t know why I’m almost tempted to substitute the she for he…
    Though no, I don’t think he’d leave like this. I know he’d let me know, and we’d have a talk… And I can’t even imagine him leaving! Sgh! 🙂
