Leaving Home

I believe there was jumping on multiple legs
at one time epic falls in the corners of years
playing with milestones from the pages of books
they have flown away to join the guardians
of antiquity. In hesitation, I sell my own memories
even my footsteps forgetful of their triumphs.

Head to head with these walls
hearing voices
I engrave your names
before I cannot call these boundaries your home
you knew me even before the air recognized the shape of our lives
look at you all on multiple legs
following me out for new beginnings.

  1. I love the line, “you knew me even before the air recognized the shape of our lives”. You can never reply leave completely, memories follow you. Very good poem.
