"The greatest ironies of life: having the right person at the wrong time, having the wrong person when the time is right, and finding out that you love someone after that person walks out of your sight ...." -V. Para

It's not like I could ever really choose
An outcome I'm not inclined to refuse
Destiny's told me it's prime time to lose

I am running
Unphased by my limbs' requests to hold back
Each mile is a marker of how deep I've fallen
And it grows worse as my sneakers slam into the Earth
I frantically sprint backwards
Away from what never really was

Embarking on my labored journey
For the sake of the meaningless
Close to finally grasping the reality
That I will never catch up
With whatever it is I am chasing

Jagged branches collide
With the hollowed face
That I've grown accustomed
To observing in the mirror

I will continue to deny reason
So I can overcome all that plagues me
By escaping it forever

I run like the devil trails me
But even he saw this coming before it began

So I let go

Drowning in my strange seclusion
Motives springing from delusion
I have hit my sound conclusion
