Dead End


Run run run
As fast as you can
You can catch me
I'm at a dead end
Why am I here?
Who are you?
What are you doing?
Stop! !
I must go
I must run
To a place
Where "we" can be one
But who is "we"
Where is he?
I thought he was here
I want him
I need him
I'm at a dead end
Without him
I'm holding on
To past time
I'm holding on
To him
Please
Help me
I want him
But I'm at a dead end
Bring him back to me
Let me see him one last time
It you don't
I will run
And run and run
Until I find him
I'll run until my feet hurt
I'll run until I run out of energy
I'll run
And run
But that'll only lead me
To a dead end
So run run run
As fast as you can
Try to find him
Before you come to a dead end

Poem of the Day

poet John Clare

I love to see the old heath's withered brake
Mingle its crimpled leaves with furze and ling,
While the old heron from the lonely lake
Starts slow and flaps its melancholy wing,
