LEFT BEHIND A Poem

Running running after you
Yet always left behind
I know you don't do it to hurt me
Or even to be unkind

It's just that I'm not important enough
To turn back for a cursory glance
I'm always available when you need me
So we continue to do this dance

Running running after you
I have tried to make you see
When you settle for less than what you're worth
That's what you do to me

Running running after you
Forgot to stop and look
At the sadness creeping inside of me
This poem was all it took
