You Forever Run

written by: Michael Ball



You run from that imp Love,
Fearing what it might do.
One and two deep wounds
is all you know or need to know.

Watch me though.
I have always run toward Love,
Hoping what it might do.

You would say I am foolish
while I say heroic, firefighter
into the burning building.

Your desire for safety and
my desire for desire never align.

Michael Ball scrambled from daily and weekly papers through business and technical pubs. Satisfaction and feeling like a writer came through blogging and podcasting, mostly political. Born in OK and raised in rural WV, he became more citified in Manhattan and Boston. He joined the Hyde Park Poets Workshop two years ago, and will never again write a manual or help system. He has moderate success placing poems in print and online.
