Just an Escape
By Allie Marie
I don’t want to be like this.
My name just caught at the tip of your tongue.
Always the perfect escape,
but never the one.
An expert on how to say no,
A dictionary that only goes a few words past hello.
You should have known when you met me.
You already knew too much of my story.
Disappointment is as great for the both of us.
We never even got the chance to rust.
