Desperate Resignation

Have you ever wanted to run,
Just run,

You know a cab would get you there faster,
Or a train,
Or a plane,
But you'd rather run,
Because you have no destination,

That is your heart has a destination,
But your feet can't take you there,
So even if you run, you're still going nowhere,
No matter how fast you go, or how far,

But you need to run still,
To get to the point where,
You can't run anymore,
You can't breathe anymore,
You can't hear your heart anymore,
And to that point where,
You're certain theres nothing you can do anymore,
But stop.
Just stop.

  2. "......................"- i had nothing to add like some people *cough*roc*cough*, so I figured i'd just add more dots.....I can only run in my head...in circles...i think too much and I am too self conscious to just let go; really run and not care, but I imagine running though....many times

    "You're certain theres nothing you can do anymore,
    But stop.
    Just stop."--truth. :)
