I run

I run and I run 
but what am I running from? 
I can't remember anymore 
my past is a blur 

My breathing is ragged 
my chest is burning 
and I feel the sob escape my throat 
as hot tears stream down my cold face 

I sink to the frosty ground 
the early morning fog disguising my form 
and I let the pain rip through me 
the fear, the regret, the loss 

Overpowered by guilt and regret 
the feelings consume me 
Where has my life gone? 
Where is it going? 

To feel again is overwhelming 
but this ache in my chest wont be sated 
I pick myself up and put on my facade 
and I run and I run
