Watch. As ever second dies. Another is born.

I’ve been watching you.
The end keeps running away.
Time won’t let me catch up.
It’s like trying to chase the horizon.
A finish line that matches my every stride.
My lungs can’t keep, and my feet become like iron.
And as the sun melts any hope I have left, I begin to feel a motivating pain.
Reaching into my guts I pull out one last sprint.
Breaking free from the earth I cross the horizon and fall off the edge of the world.
Exactly where I want to be.
Floating through space, where time has no meaning.
Free of measurements, free of rules.
The absence of gravity is what keeps me grounded.
Ironic isn’t it.
