Pretend it’s nothing.
It won’t stay.
Hold the hurt
far away.
Kept at bay, kept at bay,
such a busy, busy day.
Don’t you stop.
Don’t slow down.
Keep your feet
from off the ground.
Running, running
running ’round.
Busy, busy,
Can’t be found.
Start to stop.
Weary road.
Got to rest
this heavy load.
Here it comes –
gotta go.
Stay a pace
ahead or so.
Empty, spent,
Down you fall.
Struggle up
Begin to crawl.
Final gasp –
finished heap.
Now upon you
slowly creeps
deafening silence
and sleep.
