Dead End


Run run run
As fast as you can
You can catch me
I'm at a dead end
Why am I here?
Who are you?
What are you doing?
Stop! !
I must go
I must run
To a place
Where "we" can be one
But who is "we"
Where is he?
I thought he was here
I want him
I need him
I'm at a dead end
Without him
I'm holding on
To past time
I'm holding on
To him
Please
Help me
I want him
But I'm at a dead end
Bring him back to me
Let me see him one last time
It you don't
I will run
And run and run
Until I find him
I'll run until my feet hurt
I'll run until I run out of energy
I'll run
And run
But that'll only lead me
To a dead end
So run run run
As fast as you can
Try to find him
Before you come to a dead end

Poem of the Day

poet Robert Frost

Some say the world will end in fire,
Some say in ice.
From what I've tasted of desire
I hold with those who favor fire.
But if it had to perish twice,
