Sweat slides down my cheeks
Tears mix in
Salt and more salt
Just too much going on

Waves crash over me
The finish line is nowhere to be seen
Just running and running
Whom or What is chasing me

Blood dribbles down my knee
"Get up Get up", the fear says
But "give up" is calling to me
So I lay there, fading away

"Help!" I scream
Knowing no one can hear
I'm not afraid of death
Just the pain before it comes

The terrible beasts are following
I'm not ready
I try to bear the agony.
I jolt awake and realize it was just a dream
