Running

We start off

I stay right behind him

 

My feet pound

I pace myself

 

My heart pounds

I try to keep up

 

My head pounds

My breathing comes in ragged gulps

 

His feet pound

He refuses to slow down

 

His heart pounds

His breathing comes, steady and even

 

The ground comes up to meet me

My world goes black

 

He runs on

Never turns back
