I Can’t Run

I feel the urge to run

Run as fast as I can

no running

But after only few paces

My legs turn into stone

I can’t feel them anymore

I can’t reach my destination

Despite being able to fly so high

And landing safely from higher grounds

I just can’t run normally

This is my nightmare

Ain’t no fiction this is




For The Daily Post’s Nightmare

Added for RDP Tuesday: GO
