I’m running down this one way street towards you with everything in my arms.
I’m running toward you like some desperate fool even though I know it’s not going to be good for me.
In front of me I see your heart so full and fresh but when I look behind me and I see mine a little wilted and depressed.
The sweat is running down my face and I’m started to pant real hard. My chest is tingling but I cannot stop and rest.
I can see you smiling in the distance, not too far now I tell myself.
Then I drop to my knees, I can’t anymore. I’m sorry, I’m sorry I couldn’t give you everything I wanted to give you. My head hangs in shame. The world is dark and I’m alone.
For a time there is silence, isolation and nothing but my shame.
I feel a hand pat my head from above and I look up to see you. You’re laughing at me. Tears are streaming down my eyes, I’m confused and I don’t know what to say.
You laugh even more and so much so that your eyes disappear before you say ‘Hey, you’ve been running down this one way street all along but you’ve gotta let me meet you half way.’
