  • i walked away
    gone the stoop
    gone the shoulders drawn and hunched

    i walked away
    your words in my hand
    the brush of your lips
    a burning brand

    i walked away
    easy strides
    a trace of a swagger
    glanced back and caught your eye
    eyes of fire
    eyes of gold

    See me walking, walking away
    i'm the one illuminated
    by a pirate's grin

    i walked away
    but i reckon i know the path back
