I ran the other way

As fast as I could

I was sprinting

With my heart racing 

And my lungs burning

I needed to get away from him

He was too much truth

He knew more about me than I knew

How could I trust someone that knows me better than I know myself?

I had to get away from him

But every single time I looked around 

There he was arms out wide

Waiting for me

He didn’t seem as breathless as I was

He seemed patient

He was just there waiting

How could I trust someone that remained calm in a storm?

Didn’t he know what I was feeling?

My mind was raging 

I couldn’t see straight from the fog and tears 

I changed directions thinking maybe I could lose him

I speed up

Running faster in another direction

Yet there he was

Didn’t he know what I was running from?

Since he knew so much 

Couldn’t he tell that I needed rest?

I was so tired

I am so tired

My legs hurt

My sides are cramping

I am so tired of running from him

When he is the rest and peace I need

To lay beside him and hear his voice

How peaceful

My only fear now is that I am too tired to enjoy it

I have to catch my breath first

Please, please just hold me and let me catch my breath
