Run.
Like you're being chased.
Like there's no tomorrow.
Run as fast as you can.
The wind in your hair.
Eyes so bright.
With tears.
Heart thumping wildly.
With fear.
Catching breath.
With deep gulps.
Run.
Run from today.
Yesterday.
Tomorrow.
Run so fast no one can sweep you off your feet.
From the lonliness.
From all the goodbyes.
Run so fast,
your breath is lost,
on the trail that gets longer each second.
Run from the drowning.
From the stillness.
From the madness.
From you.
Let your eyes skim the trees you pass.
Catch the stars as they hide.
The sky gone dark.
Shadows.
Run from the shadows.
Run somewhere new.
Run from looking back.
From the feelings trying to catch up with you.
No time to think.
No time to stop.
Run.
Like you never have.
Then stop.
Stare at the sky for a few seconds.
Catch your breath.
And slowly,
start to walk back.
