20 September 2011


One long race against the world
I run far and don't let go
my eyes behold the blur of the land
hold back the wind

I blink

and away I am gone.

A moment moves so slowly
my mind races on ahead
all the words around me
voices speaking spilling
stealing ideas

I run through and my voice
runs through and my heart
runs faster
just so I can get to you

I move on and on
closer and farther away


I stop.
and then I stand still
I fall  and I look up at the sky
and watch the clouds race by

one, by one, large forms floating
until they, too, stand still.
