Always Traveled Alone – A Free Verse Poem by Leona

You expected me to

Dream

In yellows and blues

But I told you that 

I’m not from this part of town

You expected me to

Love

In red panda kisses

But I told you that

I don’t like the big city light

You asked me to

Sing

The way I did in the month of

May

But I told you that

I lost my voice a long time ago

You asked me to

Marry

The man you had become

And I told you that

I’ve always traveled 

alone
