Run. faster. no end. never an end. just go.
Run. sprint. halfway? just begun?
Run. pain. hurt.
Run. faster. push. don’t stop. never stop. numb. mechanical.
Run. harder. hurry. pathetic. weak.
Run. nothing more. never more.
Run. faster . be strong. don’t die. it’s only release. only losers need release.
Run. win. faster. blurred world.
Run. push. faster. harder.
Run. mind gone. losing control.
Run. too fast! brakes? winners don’t need brakes.
Help. the end.

Very good, I like the periods between each though.

I liked this poem a lot. It gave you many different perspectives on why the speaker is running. The lines," Run. faster. dont't stop. never stop. numb. mechanical.," and "Run. harder. hurry. pathetic. weak," gives you the imagery that the speaker is running from someone or being chased, not intended on being caught. In contrast, the line," Run. too fast! brakes? winners don't need brakes.," makes you think that the speaker is in a race and is getting tired, but does not want to stop, for he wants to win the race. I also like how the layout of this poem is. The questions make you think and the constant periods make it sound like sudden thoughts popping into the head of the speaker! This was very good, keep writing!

"She walks in beauty,
Like the night of cloudless climes and starry skies;
And all that's best of dark and bright
Meet in her aspect and her eyes."
