I Want To Run Poem by Meredith B.

I Want To Run

Rating: 5.0

I'm not controlling it.
It's the voice in my head
You told me I was good enough
But I listened to the voice instead

It's cold in this shadow of doubt
that's overcome me
I have to follow the sound
Or I might go crazy

I want to turn and run to you
I want your warm embrace
I want to say I'll come back soon
And that I'll be okay.

Come wake me from this nightmare
That somehow I got into
Come save me from this horrid place
please - come to my rescue

The ground breaks underneath me
I fall fast
but I can't scream
and then...

I break.

Finally I'm running back
i can feel you again
I found the right track.
You say you love me and I finally believe you.

The voice I silence
I take it from its core
I run and sing and play and dance
I'll hear the voice no more.

A very deep poem with many layers. the voice is the inner being... and so all you have to do is study its thought patterns to understand and tame it.

'I take it from it's core'.........use 'its', a simple mistake even I've made. Welcome to PH, young lady. ;)
