Adira Singh, Poetry 2022 Longlist

The Runaway Girl

I hate the way I feel

Should I turn away from you 
or Should I run away with someone new

Somewhere far away from you 
Where the echoes of your voice won’t trouble me

Where the winds won’t whisper your name

Where the magical skies 
do not draw your face with the clouds

Where the rain won’t feel like your skin 
Where the sun won’t shine as bright as you

Where the moon won’t be as calm as you
Where the stars won’t guide me home the way you do

Where the river won’t taste like your lips 
I will run away somewhere far away from you

Where my name will be engraved on every stone 
Where I will be known
