You Didn’t Go Anywhere

And love hit us like a bomb
It was hot
on the battlefield of fear
I ran, you ran

Yet in my heart
you were still there
As a presence, as truth,
as love, as you
You didn’t go anywhere

And the wind came
and blew you far away
you flew to the other side
of the ocean
Distance between us
was marked on a map

And even miles apart
Yet you are still here
as you didn’t go anywhere
Never farther than
the border of my heart



  1. Once in the heart, there is no leaving… true love stays, forever and beyond… such a powerful image, love running from the battlefield of fear… it does that, sometimes, makes us so scared that we run from the very thing we need… beautifully written, Marieke, as always…
