Safe

I run from love.
Like a coward,
I run at even the mention of it.
Too much,
Pain
In love,
Has made life safer
When love is more,
Fantasy
Than Reality.
So, I create a new kind
Of love for me.
Through, correspondence
Which they call social,
But truly is
Lonely.

I hide from a life,
Outside my words.
They are safe,
You are not.
So, I run from you.

    1. Thank you! The poem is meant to read the way it does. Not only is the collection of poems a reflection on modern love, but it also is the modern distractions and the fleeting nature of today’s society. Some poems will reflect this more in this collection, and others will have little elements of it.
