You Don't Know How To Run

It is suffocating
It is freezing
Breathe is hard
Hands trembling
Close your heart
Shut the eyes
Some broken pieces won't come back
Someone you hate calmly in the bottom of heart
You don't know how to run
You don't know how to lie
You don't know how to cry

You are tired
You are exhausted
Weary to the bone
Numb to the soul
Grit your teeth
Drag your feet
Where we turn to the wrong corner
Where we hide those ugly emotion
You don't have a courage to run
You don't have will to let down
You don't have power to move on

Still blind
Still so silent
Eating loneliness
Accepting bitterness
Is it not enough?
Will you ever stop?
Just bare the bleeding wound open
Just look to the gaping black hole
You don't know that you can run
You don't know that you can try
You don't know that you can stop to be a good man

Do you actually not want to run?

Poem of the Day

poet Robert Burns

When biting Boreas, fell and doure,
Sharp shivers thro' the leafless bow'r;
When Phoebus gies a short-liv'd glow'r,
Far south the lift,
