"What I've Learned II"

what i've learned
is that one can cross the country
drive three thousand miles
start a new life
and still feel stuck

and after all that

who would turn down the street
and walk this way?
surely not you
because you have an honest face
but you'll never be trusted
to stick around

You with your covered heart

and your attention in every direction

since when did you have the upper hand?

since your heart runs at a full five beats a minute?
or since your unattached eyes see
straight through mine

Now that i've found you

i have never felt more lost
