Runaway

Chest rising and falling

rapidly

rapidly

City lights fading

panic setting in

like needles in the bloodrunning away

every ounce of hope vanished

Crying out for help

into the still night

like a hurricane in the ocean

every drop of belief melted

Running, pounding, scrambling

rapidly

rapidly

Salted breeze swaying

calming, nurturing, insuring

Ocean waves crashing

wrapping, soothing, beckoning

slowly

slowly

subsiding

stifling

Silence

Runaway, runaway, runaway
