By maggot death

I flee from fear,
I flee from death
As the sand draws in from beneath,

I flee.

I flee from all
from hate,
from lies,
from love,
from life,
I can't take it...

Then, it finds me.
The hate
the love
it found me.
I started to sprint
double my pace
as the nothingness known as life
disintegrates everything behind me
almost reaching me
killing me.

I struggle for freedom
life close behind
I run so fast...

Then I slip

I trip up
I fall
and I brace myself
for the life
that caught up with me
and is sending

    Much enjoyed. I felt like I got caught up in the moment of these words. I feel like I've been running from life for a while the whole time telling myself I'm running towards it. Food for thought, thanks for sharing.

  • A former member wrote: This is a good in depth poem, it's brings those who are looking for a light, face to face with reality. Thank you for you comment on my "Found My Heart Again" When I have a feeling on my mind that's weighing me down I put it into poetry. That's how it ended up here. Somewhere where I can express my thoughts. It helps take the weight off. XLovexIsxEvilxBlissX ps check out my other poetry, some may not seem that interesting, but it's what's on my mind at the time.
