Marathon of Stars

You’ll tell yourself
I was the one
who
got
away,
but away is the
only direction
you know
how to run.

I was too
naïve to realize I
should be waiting
for the other
shoe
to
drop,
so I never noticed
you were crouching in a
sprinter’s stance, your feet
already outfitted.

When you slipped out the door on
padded soles, did you
stumble
in
the
night
while I was lying in
the bed you never woke me
to unmake?

No.

Your path was clearly
lit from the beginning; it was
I
who
was
in the dark.
