How to Leave Town

How to Leave Town

A Poem by Emmy

He said he knew how to leave town
better than anyone else.
So I gave it a try
to see how it felt.

I spent a day on the harbor
that I thought would be my last,
but the ducks would haunt me.
My thoughts were too fast.

You spoke a song of submarines
while I traced hearts on your arm.
We fought the day before,
this was once our norm.
