The Night We Ran Away

Do you remember

the night we ran away?

The moon softly lit the

right side of your face

as we sat in our hiding place

talking

talking

talking

about our favorite bands

about the future

and not at all.

You made me feel so free

as if I could run

to the ends

of the earth.

And if my parents

hadn’t gone looking for us

maybe we would still be

running

running

running

under the stars

wind hitting our faces

your laugh echoing

through the black atmosphere

your hard leading me further.
