Running in the Dark, Looking for the Swings

I watched her walk away,
Her dress white and short,
I could see into her mind,
She wanted to run,
To taste the freedom in the wind she created,
To dance to the beat of her feet hitting the gravel.

I watched him chase after her,
A love story unfinished in his mind.

She is alone and better off that way,
He cannot fathom how love could not be enough.

I watched her look back at him,
As he struggles to keep up,
Her soul like fireworks on New Year's Eve,
Saying goodbye to him.
I watched her laugh,
As he struggles to come to terms with her terms.

I watched her finally understand,
And I watched her watching me,
A genuine smile slowly forming on her pouting lips.
