Look at you

Yes you

Self proclaimed savior of hearts

Housing one more broken than most

Who saves you?

Who fights your demons?

No one

You hide everything from everyone

And those who see and try to help

You chase away

Still an emotional masochist

After all these years

Hit the Ground

Tomorrow I start the routine

It’s been too long

That I’ve been unhealthy

So I’ve started eating right

The next step is here

Pun intended

But running in my opinion

Isn’t just about cardio

It clears my mind

So I’ll be physically and mentally

In the right place

Look good and feel good

Running Was All She Knew

Left, right
Sprinting forward
She runs
For as long as she can remember
She’s been running
From situations she didn’t want to handle
From conversations she didn’t want to have
She ran from the things right in front of her
She was never able to escape
Everything always caught up
Stronger than when she left it
If only she’d dealt with it then

He’d been watching her
For as long as he’s known her
She’s been running
He tries to get her to stop
He tries to get her to slow down
Deal with things before they get bigger
He was proud when she ran to him
Away from something she’d been holding on to
Straight into his arms she ran
He caught her
Holding on to her
She was so tired

He feels the movement
She tries to push off his chest
Things are getting real
Her instincts kick in
She needs to run again
He holds on to her
Shouting her name
Trying to break the trance
Attempting to snap her out of it
She shakes her head
Gathering herself

She’s trying to run
Away from the same love that saved her
Tears stream down her face
Her body wants to run
Conditioning
But her heart won’t let her
Love
He holds her to him
Against the resistance he’ll fight
Fight for her like he always has
His heart is tied to hers
Anchoring her in place
Love keeps her here

Fugitive of Love

This is working out
Not how it’s supposed to be
The way I feel
Is not returned to me
I took everything that I would need
And I threw it into my pack
Now I’m a man on the run
I have to constantly look back
I wont allow myself to get captured
Can’t get sent back to that state
I can’t take it anymore
That feeling is not so great

He’s coming to get me
The detective heavy on the chase
I need to cover my tracks
Be careful not to leave a trace
He is really trying to catch me
He’s giving this his all
This guy is one of the best
But he does not follow protocol
Kinda trigger happy this one is
I wouldn’t call him a big waiter
When he finds who he’s looking for
It’s shoot first ask questions later
He doesn’t use bullets
But rather primitive ammunition
When you get hit though
You feel a certain condition

He has captured many people
Even some of my friends
That’s why I’m so sure
That he will chase me till the end
I have to be careful who I talk to
They could be on his side
I need to keep away from the females
Well, I need to at least try
When I think that it’s cool
And we are just friends
He is right there
Hiding around the bend
It would be much easier
To just give myself in
But I have a big problem
With letting other people win

If he succeeds in catching me
I will want what I can never get
And in the end I’ll be unhappy
And as usual also upset
I escaped from the prison
I think that it made him mad
In and out ever since
I was a little lad
He has chased me for so long
I always seem to slip away
Had a close encounter
He almost caught me today
His expression was indifferent
He looked at me narrow eyed
He said:

Running From a Savior

Day by day I feel you start to slip
I try to tighten my grip…
But it always remains just to loose
Then I realize that you’re fighting
The stranger holding your arm
When I never meant you any harm
In your eyes…
I’m no longer the same…
I try calling your name…
But my voice is an unfamiliar sound
You don’t turn around
I walk away with my head down
What we were is all I ever wanted to be
Now it’s just a memory
You don’t know me…
Not anymore…
I really deplore
The way things are now
I don’t know how
They ever got this way
I thought you would always stay
I hope everything will be alright
I hope I make it through the lonely nights
I hope I don’t shed too many tears
Wishing you were still here
Then I remember
That at the end of my rope
I had almost given up hope
Today…
I let my white horse run away
And I hang up my armor
Because I could no longer save the day
I wish I could go back in time
Back to when you where mine
Back to the time that I…
I felt alive
