It’s Not That I’m Running Away

You know me better than I know myself, I think.
What I need, who I am, why. You read the words
from my heart before they even cross my lips.
Somehow you understand my restlessness
for what it is—selfish desires
never meant to bring pain.

I’ve been working on a collection of poetry these past few months, which sort of explains why I haven’t done much personal writing on here. My heart has been so full as I’ve poured myself into this collection, soon to be released in early 2017, “Somewhere On A Highway.”

It’s been a growing experience for me, and this poem is actually something I drafted early on, but decided not to keep in the collection. It’s a preview of some of the emotions in the book. ❤
