wings

She is running
I try to catch up
I am running with her
We are talking,

“Did you see the news?”
“No,” I say.
“It’s horrible.”

She is running faster
Than me so I yell,

“Emma, wait!”

She closes her eyes
She starts to pull away
I can’t keep up I gasp
and clutch my sides

She leaps off the end
of all that she loved–

I gasp and clutch my sides.
