Run, Run.

Poetry By: numnums

You know that feeling of wanting to run. To run from everything, everyone. You want to escape reality and just end up in an empty meadow of nothingness.

Run, Run.

Run, run, run away

No matter how much I run, I can't escape from it.

Run, run, run away.

If I look back while running you'll still be there.

.

It's pitch dark.

The world moves on too fast.

I'm the only one who's failing,

limping on both legs.

.

The path I must walk is endless.

Where will it lead me?

My two arms, tied up by a daily life,

Is too heavy to embrace dreams.

.

I'm scared,

I've been abandoned,

Locked away.

Just for today, let me run somewhere like I'm crazy.

.

Run,

Run till you can touch the sky with your hands.

Run,

Run till your heart is filled with your dreams.

.

You got me runnin' runnin' runnin' around.

Down, down, down.

No matter how much I run,

I'm still in the same spot.

.

My life is a rainy night that rains 365 days a year.

I have a heart that gets smaller in every 24 hours.

But I want to carry the new day on my shoulder

And run.

.

What am I running towards?

Whether if the sun's setting or if I'm losing,

I'll keep on runnin' runnin' runnin' high.

I'm the young star that has been abandoned by the galaxy.

.

Everybody run, run, run away

No matter how much I run, I can't escape from it.

Everybody run, run, run away

No matter how much I run, I'm still on the same spot.

.

You got me runnin' runnin' runnin' around.

Down, down, down.

Running away,

Running for you, who's running endlessly.

.
