I’m sorry I couldn’t be there for you

I didn’t notice I was still running from the past

had blurry vision cause my pace was fast

unable to build anything that lasts


bonding never occurred to me

I was so desperate to be free

running I did, away from the past

now I’m alone

the first will be last


afraid to let you close

cause I might get attached

like with thorns of a rose

afraid to get scratched


in fear to get trapped

I’m swift to escape

but slow to adapt

to the thought, you don’t want to harm

in fact, just want to hold me in your arm


while escaping the past, I’ve missed the now

Eckhart Tolle wouldn’t be too proud

now I calm down and take deep breaths

like Jason Mraz

I’m starting to see all the magic

and the details in the fabric


I stopped running and turned to look around

but there was no chaser to be found

I don’t know where I go from here

but you showed me

there’s no need to live in fear


there is still concrete around my chest

my old bullet proof west

a relic from the past

but no armor will forever last

the roots of a rose digged in but caused no harm

my armor is defenseless against a roses charm
