Soon gone,
I'm here.
Soon gone,
I'm near.

For no reason.
I'm running to nothing,
Through every season.

I'm lost in my misery,
Where is my destination?
It's nowhere near,
Lost in desolation.

Can't I know the truth?
Instead of wondering why?
Please, don't lie to me.
I ran away without a single goodbye.

This place is worth nothing.
This is mearly the narration of my life.
Blank is this place,
This place wallowing in strife.

I'm running to nothing,
Straight into black.
Running to nothing,
Never looking back.

So sad, and a little mysterious. The emotion, reaction are universal-run away when you are hurt, but the question is what caused the reflex? Is running the answer? Does it fix anything? It doesn'tmatter, it's what we do in the end isn't it? Nice.

been there before. not a easy place to escape. but you'll know where your running to one day. and you'll be able to stop running and never look back.

If I feel physically as if the top of my head were taken off, I know that is poetry.
