Like A Little Boy

Like a little boy…you run away
A big strong man of your stature
Sinew and muscle and virility
All molded into one flesh
The image of strength
The bastion of courage

And yet…
You run away…
Like a little boy, you run away
From what you don’t understand
From what you are afraid to comprehend
From what your heart is demanding of you…

Complete SURRENDER at the feet of 

And so….
With powerful muscles at your disposal
You run…
With your feelings chasing after you
On feet faster than a cheetah’s
With desire running after you
With a hunger stronger than a lion’s
With passion closing in on you
With the ferocity of the strongest predator
Keep running, my sweet boy
Keep running….
But be sure, be VERY sure
You can never outrun
My love...
It will will hunt you down...
