Running

Running
Bare feet
In scorching heat
Clutching a teddy bear
Crying…
Her feet against the hot pavement
Sun blaring above her head
She ran
Away…
Trying to find her way
Running…
Slid besides a gate
Her back to a cement pane
Crying…
For how long she doesn’t have a memory
Until someone found her
Took her by hand
Back to home
Begins the cycle again…

    I love the feeling of a cycle happening in the words and in the rhythms and in the story. Clever sharp writing as always. This is my favourite part

    Her feet against the hot pavement

    Away…

    Very nice poem, Zee. I can feel your pain in this one, such emotion coming through your words. I like how you made it rhyme every two sentences, and very seamless too. I could see this scene playing in my head and I imagined the girl holding a cute teddy bear. I love stuffed animals and plushies, really can’t get enough of them. I have lots of stuffed monkeys at home because I love monkeys! I hope you are well, Zee. It’s great to see you back here again πŸ™‚ Lots of love ❀
