Know When to Run

Drawn to the flame

Your heart fire pulls me in

Battles the same

Neither can truly win

Addictive kiss

Your mouth as one with mine

A firework’s hiss

Explodes failures divine

Persistent itch

In that persistent spot

Followed by twitch

Emotional buckshot

Repeated words

Of love valiant and true

Are for the birds

There is no love in you

Why I return

Blind to history’s pain

Looking for love

When dry has run the vein

Please walk away

Merry-go-round be done

The other way

Choose I to quickly run

    Leaving at the right time prevents a lot of pain and distress.and keeps the perception of the relationship being good alive…

    like Kenny Rogers said:
    “You got to know when to hold ’em,
    Know when to fold ’em,
    Know when to walk away,
    And know when to run.”

    well done, Brad.
