The Chase

I am worn
I am tired
Yet this chase continues

I breathe
I sweat
And continue to elude
So good at finding
The escape hatches
The hidey holes
And blending into this terrain
Like colors washed off in the rain

The air is heavy with tenseness
Like watchers waiting for a man to jump
Excited by either prospect
Back away or jump
Live or die
Detached
From the reality of that moment
The paths leading to that crossroad

The air is heavy with vigilance
Each breath screams
Like a kettle boiling
And quiet feels impossible
But needs to be real

Because they are coming
Just as they have come before
As predictable as seasons
As day and night

They come with a vengeance
With a single minded thought
Of finding that which was lost

I hear their dogs barking
See their lights flashing
Looking for my trail

I have run so hard
I have run so long
And there was a reason to run
Sometimes that is forgotten
Or misplaced

Sometimes I stop
To watch them look
Wondering in silence
Should I turn myself in

But they are lost to me too
I cannot make out their shapes
Their forms
Their identities

So I choose flight over fight
Because what happened back then
May happen again
Who might be coming
Who might be chasing
Could be the horror
The terror
The evil
That started this chase
That pushed me into exile
Without a trial

Or it could be me
The rest of me
Coming to claim me
Coming to name me
And all that was done
Coming to recall
Coming to uncover
That which I am still
Running from

Very Nice.

I especially like the last stanza.

Heal Well.
