Running



 What do you run from?

 Heart hidden in the shadow
 of years-

 Masquerading
 time worn worries
 in your bones-

 How you feared
 they would break


  and you would no longer
  feel the sun take the
  chill of loneliness from
  your aching arms.

  1. Masquerading does wear thin after a while...if one cannot be who one really is.

  2. running gets quite old as well...and figuring out what you are running from...why you are wearing the masks...what it is you fear, do that and you are half way to an answer

  3. Yes, sometimes people run away from their problems, wearing a mask of denial ... still feeling that isolation. You captured this feeling well, Lisa. P.S. did you mean to repeat "longer" twice in our last stanza?

    Masquerading
    time worn worries
    in your bones-

  5. Hiding the feeling, truth, run from who you are - hard, takes lots of energy. To ask the question - already the step toward that understanding... ~ thoughtful poem, Lisa.

  6. One certainly is not free from fears of losing or of being deprived! Nice take Lisa!

  7. Sad when we are that lonely Lisa - and sometimes, afraid, we make ourselves so.
