Caretakers

You saw in my eyes

and heard in my voice

I did not want to leave,

I feared what would happen

walking alone

so far

late at night

Putting on my best face,

collecting myself,

I left your car

embarking on my journey

yet in minutes

you told me to exit,

to allow you to pick me up

only two stops

from where I just left,

insisting I spend the night with you

in safety

It was then I realized

there were two caretakers

in our conversation

that night
