One or Another

She saw him standing there

on the edge of the circle

from just far enough
that he didn’t see her

His back was turned

but she knew it well

After all this time

She paused for just a moment

breathe in 

get her strength

straighten up her shoulders

shake her head

clear the air

before she turned around

and walked the other way

So that he wouldn’t be

in an awkward position

tough situation

caught between 

a rock and a hard place

one or another

He turned aaround 

just in the nick of time

to see her walking out
her back was turned

but he knew it well

After all this time

He paused for just a moment

trying to decide

if he should catch her 

or stay away

from awkward positions

tough situations

 rock and a hard place

one or another
