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
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
