You’ll Still Hit Traffic, or Construction

THE LONG WAY

take the long way
round and round
twisting my words
step by step
you don’t mind
the distance
avoid the path
well-worn long ago
heart to heart
take the long road
to get where you
need to be
away from here
from me
your footsteps echo
in the silence
you’re avoiding
nothing but the pain
we cause ourselves
taking the long way
