    crunch....crunch....crunch
    whew
    faster...faster...faster
    swish..swish..swish
    hmph...hmph
    thud..thud..thud
    These are the sounds of my morning run
    crunching through the driveways gravel
    whew
    I made to the sidewalk
    Pushing myself faster and faster
    Hearing the swish of my shorts
    Searching for something just out of reach
    As my feet hit the concrete...
    thud.thud.thud.thud...
    creating a steady beat, I am
    FREE
    Breathing hard just trying not to think
    Then it happens my zone finds me
    and





    SILENCE






    There's nothing but me and nature
    I can hear my heart beat in my own ears
    as steady as my feet meeting asphalt
    thud.thud.thud.thud...
    hhhhhhuhhhhh, hhhhhhuhhhhh
    Breathing hard but I can't feel it
    I hear the birds songs and
    feel the morning dew on my skin
    pushing myself, just a little further
    hhhhhuhhhhh, huhhhhhhh
    No thoughts except to keep running
    faster...faster...faster
    My lungs are burning and my legs like to melt
    That's when I realize


    I can't run from myself.

    Nice piece...well put.
    We can out-run ourselfs, ..but only to exit "NO MORE"
    pace your "run" with you, for you do indeed have a life-time with you.
    excellent piece poet ...^5
