Run To You

by Jal Patel
(Tanzania, East Africa)

After all is said and done
after a day of fighting demons
after putting on a brave face
through it all
after I tell myself
I have moved on—

I want to run to you.

After all chores are done
another day put to rest
lists checked and
there’s nothing left to do
all it takes
Is one thought of you
for the mind to unscramble
contents to spill over
heart to uncheck
everything unraveled
through all this mess—

I want to run to you.
