Half Marathon My Hour 9

I keep finding interesting words I’ve saved or that are on the dictionary. So I keep having to use them!


Some people pull away from hard things

Or avoid too much noise

Or too much light

But I turn away from you

I hide from you

Keep myself from being too close

I withdraw from what I feel

Because how could you feel the same

So I move away from you

I stay just me and watch you

  1. I’m struck by your opening: ‘Some people pull away from hard things’ – followed by ‘but I pull away from you.’ In fact – isn’t a relationship the hardest thing? So many of us pull away from them. I’d love to see you move INTO this sensation rather than seeming to put yourself at odds with it. Very compelling thesis. Thank you.
