Feet rapping
Against concrete
Mine ahead,
His behind
A steady rhythm

I pick up my pace
Our hearts beat
Faster
In unison

Engulfed in darkness
We run.
Away from the past
Away from the future
With nowhere to go
But now

I skid to a halt
His feet stumble
And we stand
Stuck

We are still free,
But trapped
By time

The future is coming
We can feel it

The freedom
Slowly
Quietly
Fading.
