Purple's Platitudes

nothing but words …


08 August 2013



all dressed up and princess-like

she went to the dance with

someone else.


too shy to ask someone else,

too proud to go alone,

I stayed outside.


I ran my angry jealousy out

on the school track

and watched through open doors.


104 laps around an 1/8 mile track,

I found that inner motivation

to keep running.


Maybe someday I’ll stop.
