She said, “Come with me,”

and I said, “No,

there is no telling where

this path goes.”


She called me a coward,

and went on her way.

It’s this spot where I’ll stand

and it’s this spot where I’ll stay.


She was gone for a while

and then I heard her scream.

I wondered if I should go to her

or just turn around and leave.


But she came running my way

with fear in her eyes.

And then I glanced behind and

what I saw took me by surprise.


I took off running with her

and never looked back.

For surely we would die

and that is a fact.
