A Runaway
–a looong busy day–
search for peace
and a place to play

A quiet spot,
the pool for hot
the porch for cool

Lovers meet
and find retreat
with searing touch
and kisses sweet.

I’ll not regret
(I’m not dead yet!)
the days spent
I cannot forget.

I’ll come, come back
with funds I lack
to stay again;
Get soul on track.
