We both started off at the same place,
Yet we drifted away through time,
It started off at a steady pace,
As we heard the clock chime,
It signaled the beginning of this race.

You and me start off,
We both are getting ready,
Tick tock,
Hear it comes,
You and me set off.

I run,
You scream,
You say this is no fun.

You crash into a mob of criminals,
And they pull out a gun,
You quickly duck as they fire,
And they shoot me.

Off you run,
Carrying me as if I weighed a ton,
Blood is running down my body onto yours,
No tears exposed on me,
For little do you know,
I'm long gone.

The author's comments:
I was just fooling around when I came up with this. It doesn't make sense at first, but it's about two people in competion. They both refuse to admit their true feelings. Towards the end, the person speaking dies realizing they should have owned up to their feelings instead of playing silly little games.
