(2) Long Distance Runner

Rating: 2.7
I never knew I would be a long distance runner.

and my voice has become sweet.

Young tigers think of me
as an easy piece to hunt down
in middle game traps
and I feel like a gazelle.
What a curse

This is a really wonderful piece Luis. I am sorry that I am unaware of who the subject is, but you paint a beautiful picture of them. The flow and the repetition of the line 'I never knew I would be a long distance runner.' is excellent.
