Meet Me Halfway

As loving you no longer lingers,
Against my hand of broken fingers
Of which I've washed the Past away
(The second skin I've shed today!)
To block, to shield, to guard- protect!
But will it last the length to trek?
I'll run right and you leap left,
Our rendezvous to be discreet
Forward, backward we progress-
And in the middle we will meet

*based partly on a lover's spat and a Radiohead song ;)

    I enjoyed reading all the entries to your contest. If you could give me some feedback on my "We Met Half Way" I would be intrested in hearing your thoughts. Thanks for hosting a very intresting contest I enjoyed taking one of your poems and reimagining it. This is a very well expressed poem and it caught my attention.
