Running Nowhere

Wait.
Come back.
Where are you going?
Stop
or
at least,
Slow down.
Wait for me.
I can't keep up
With you,
But I am
Running
As fast as I can.
Wait.
Please wait?
I can't keep up
And I'm getting
Tired
Of chasing you.
What can I say
To make you
Stop?
Nothing.
Slow down?
nothing still.
I stop running.
I've gone nowhere.
All I can do is watch.
Tick… tick… tick…
There's nothing I can do
To make you
Stop.
Nothing.
Nothing to make you
Slow down.
All I can do is
Sit,
Watching.
Tick… tick…
Tick…
