Better go back home, where you belong. – The Temptations
Follow me, I know a place to run;
a place to leave our hearts and tuck away.
See that moon? There’s a small child
on the other side, finding herself running
toward the ebony sky. Embracing darkness, wild.
A golden shovel poem for dVerse. The last words of each line form the title of a hits song the year I was born: Run Away Child, Running Wild, by the Temptations.
