I cont-
inue t-
o cha-
se afte-
r things
that run

blindly, I am
feeling and m-
easuring, groping
and assuring
myself of right
choices, wrong

I look back
and years have
there is something
chasing me too--
grim and black--

I am gambling on it
never catching up,

I know I'll lose that bet,
but I've forgotten
how to stop running
forward--I've forgotten
which way my life's
supposed to lead--
so I just go

tethered to shadows
maybe, maybe to
a lingering dream,

as long as I don-
't stop to think about
it, I should be fine.
