I Found Love

By Sara Abourjeily

I found love
looked it in the eye
but it ran away

I found love three years ago
we played on sandy beaches
we laid in the sun
it stirred my blood
and shook my being

I flew but then I fell
back down the ladder
now I lay helplessly
endless questions running through my head
with no answer

I found love
looked it in the eye
but it ran away
