Running On Broken Legs

Go Alessandro Pautasso via Compfight

 

Running and running
From the
Horrors of Heaven.

My consequence
Caught up with me
And I’m dyin’.

And I know
I ought to stay still and presently be
But this thing is slowly and surely killing me.

My clay heart’s disparity
Reflects through the darkness
Shining shield for a moment of clarity .

But I just can’t quite get there
Stuck inbetween my head and
My past reminded by my fear.

 

So I keep on running
On legs which are broken
Emotionally denying
The pain goes unspoken
Pretending’s not healing
But oh so much easier
So I keep running
And running and running
And running and…
