Where would you like to go? (a poem)

One of several new poems from today.

Wait there
No—please come closer

Could we meet halfway?

I want to run to you
but I’m not sure I have the strength
to make it that far

If you would meet me in the middle
we could go whichever way we want
without having to be tied down
to where we came from

We could give each other the freedom
to choose each other
and go wherever that takes us
