Hit and Run

I looked behind me once.

Amongst the dusty haze I saw,

Not a single soul for miles.

Satisfied, my solitude, I returned:

Back to my sheltered sanctuary.

How was it that you were there?

Waiting for me where I thought I was alone.

I thought I knew my own self,

Before I met you.

You have forced me to rewrite myself:

Redefine my concrete laws,

Make room for this phenomenon.

And without even a passing glance,

You left.

And I, alone. Again.

Freshly stripped of my protective shell,

The precious cocoon I spun so lovingly:

Bare to the elements again.

The scouring wind and the choking dust.

But the pain that burns the most:

You never even knew.
