Marathon man


I am running and running as fast as I can,

As swift as the wind, quick as lightning, however

From something or towards somewhere I cannot say;

Running all my muscles sore and my breath away,

An urge to go fast, irrepressible fever,

Possesses me, moving my feet without a plan,

Running in the night along the wide river bank

Until my heart goes silent or my mind goes blank.
