By Charles Robert Lindholm

She was always better at running away
from the intimacies created by connecting
sexually and emotionally than wanting to stay
for a chance to see if love and commitment
would grow into forever

Magic moments
bursts of intensity
for brief periods of time
that ended too soon
are her stock in trade

A runaway lover
an expert at leaving
with broken hearts
left in pieces
along the way

better at running
with no desire to stay
