Walk away


Walk away,

buoyant

for you never tripped

Let the path lead you

till the shadows tread on themselves

grow lame and disappear.

 

Never look back

lest you sense

the emptiness in the breeze

that ruffled your hair

that one last time.

 

Do not turn to sigh

the tree has spread itself

hugging the desolateness

holding the cracked bits together

just before the collapse.

 

Just keep walking

till you become

the dot

in the distance.
