Don't leave me
biting the dust
as you speed away.

10w. Don't get attracted to runners.

Chopstick legged you sprint
a marathon journey of 1000 steps
to tick off this and that
before the click of now and then
and though you've wandered far
there's curious comfort in return
to that double helix of heritage and home
calligraphied in your ancestral compass.

Listen closely, Lil.
There is no finish line,
no time to beat,
no mileage goals to set.
You are a lone competitor
in a race against yourself.
Breathe Lil, breathe,
and smell the wildflowers
at the wayside.

They run and run and run
It seems, with little time to feel the sun
And yet, what they have begun
Is something that can easily be undone.

Dodging the trees here and there
They run through this thick and heavy air.
An end to this overgrown forest do they give silent prayer
But little do they know that they’re on the path to despair.

They hide from the sun’s bright
For they know not of its delight,
And instead they run to the darkness on the right
Thinking they will find some light.

However, their path is crooked and steep
As they run through the forest deep.
They are like lost sheep
Not realizing they need to awake from their sleep.

They see others running passed the trees
Dodging them with ease.
They wonder what makes the others so pleased
To be running through this breeze.

The others also fall down,
But they get back up and help those around.
While they run through darkness abound,
The others run through bright clearings round.

Two runners meet;
The lonesome path
On which they both do tread
Is shadowed by the maple trees
Which guide them in their stead.

She made me a runner
This Bill Is Gone

She made me a runner
Psychic pheromones
My bad affliction
Became my addiction

She made me a runner
Hell bent t'ward her heart
Heart-first into her wall
Blinded in pain and desire

She made me a runner
Stunned by the pain
Escape into numbness
Any sanctuary of refuge

Love made me a runner
Pain made me a runner
She made me a runner
SHE MADE ME A RUNNER

If for nothing else, thank you (insert name here) for showing me the advantages of a wall.

Let me fly


                              Quick cut the rope tying us together
                           And I soar on the wind's wings.
                       You can't feel my heaviness
                   Up, higher and higher until
               My sails until I start to lift
           Let the breeze creep under
       On the ground as you go.
    Trailing me behind
Sprint ahead

read from the bottom up :)

I have spent my life running
away from everyone in it
It has almost been two decades
but it feels like centuries have gone by
since the last time I took a break
from racing the wind
My legs have grown tired
My hands cannot seem to stay still
I try to sound strong
but my voice still cracks
and my breathing comes out in shakes
I have learned
that when you grow used to something
living without it feels like
trying to breathe with no air
So I keep running
From sunrise to sunset
Closing doors
and burning bridges
leaving no trace behind
of where I'm headed
mostly because I'm not sure
where that is
I run, though my legs tremble
Because my heart has known
the pain of change
Eventually I'll run myself
into a grave

Change hurts but so does growth.

I look in the mirror
And, I see a helpless little girl.
Struggling to find her place in the world.
Looking all around her at the smiles and laughs
Wondering when will she be able to do the same.
She just wants to run, and leave behind the hurt
Somewhere where she is accepted
as far away as possible.
Never stopping even to breathe for a second.
Somewhere where her voice is heard.
Is it out there?
