Your Face

I told you.

I told you I was too much for you

And not to try to tame me.

I told you I was breaking into a run

And could you break too.

I told you to walk away.

I asked if you thought you could stay

And BE strong.

Your words flitted through the air

Charming anesthetic.

I put my shoes on

because

Your face told the truth.
