Rescue

I left everything. and ran.
A stubborn face streaking past the stares.
I tripped, I fell. Through the cracks.
Through the crowds.
My eyes watered.
I made way.
Bruised and muddied, my feet bloodied,
I reached.
I'm here to save you, I said.
You looked without speaking.
And then you spoke without looking-
I don't need saving today.
