Running from that four letter word. LOVE.

Updated on February 27, 2013

running from love

LOVE


Running through the pastures, I ran with a mask


Felt like I’d been running forever


And how long would this last


I had finally found the strength to escape


And with everything I had in me


I was not willing to fall or be held without reasoning


I wasn’t going to allow myself to break


It was the mood of my essence that was beating sensationally


What was I to do


You see love had been chasing me


And all I could think is to run


As fast as I can


And as long as I could


And With the courage


Not saying it was right thing to do


Or that I should


But I wanted to


And so I would


Because I didn’t want to be type to commit


I had been there before and I wasn’t too happy with it


You might say I chickened out


But give me just a little slack here-just a bit


I felt if I committed I would certainly lose


Instead of thinking of what I would gain


I’d observed the situations around and given my own


I thought to myself love is just too hard to maintain


And so when I experienced this I felt pressure


Certainly a bit of strain


Over the intensity


And to think this would be FOREVER when Love


Real love, of course had finally come upon me


My life will be changed


It was really getting to me


So I decided to run


I didn’t trust it


It was too good of something


To my knowledge, a man and a woman couldn’t be in the same scene


I had come in contact with a couple who just couldn’t get it right


And this was the perfect example of exactly what I mean


I ran with a mask


Hiding what was so dear to me


Covering up what I really felt


I was hiding from not only love but myself


Attempting to escape from the past


And I kept running


But soon this wouldn’t last


I was so confused


And of it all


I had to come to a decision


Eventually I would have to choose


But I just couldn’t Love


It didn’t coordinate with the drive in my shoes


And all while pending me down and speaking these words


Love was coming


And there was nothing that I could do


So there I was standing there


Love was ready to pick me up off my feet-No exceptions


Soon, I had come to realize


I was running from what I really needed on my side


After all, all I ever wanted was some affection


And to find it in the right guy


But Instead I ran from it when I felt I was getting nothing out of the deal


And there it left me with No love


But until the I day I came to terms with who I was


And took a good look at me


I could love!


I surely wanted to now and to be swept off my feet


So I put my guard down and


I stop running from what I deeply wanted


And years later I bare two kids and a have a family, living happily with my wonderful husband


Love will catch up….it arrives just when you think it won’t be coming


So if you are racing from it, it won’t be too long because it will get you


So I suggest you just stop running
