I'm telling you to run...

by Arianna Pendragon

Age Group: Adult

You'd better run...
You better run.
You need to hide your eyes from the rising sun,
You need to realize that some guys devise lies to make you think your heart is in danger of beating still...
Suprise...this is not the warning drill...this time it's the real one.
I'm telling you to run.
You need to get yourself as far as you can from me,
You need to see that this time you cannot depend on me as a friend,
Consider me...
An enemy.
I am not pretending to sneak in slow,
I am seeking with a vengence,
I am speaking through the silence,
I am waging war against all those who came before,
Trying to adore you,
Until you swore that this could never be.
I am telling you to flee.
For every man who tried to steal your heart, and lost...
I'm gonna take it.
For that canyon you dug, thinking it was to far for me to jump across...
I'm gonna make it.
For building a wall around your soul, thinking it was a defense against the thoughts inside my head...
I'm gonna break it.
For forcing a passionate sleep, like an angry giant that's safer being put to bed...
I'm gonna wake it.
And remind David that this time Golieth won.
I'm telling you to run.
And get more than a stone's throw away,
You need to pray...
Pray that I don't catch you,
'Cause I'll make you stay...
Make you say on those things you've been afraid to say,
Because you haven't known fear,
Until you hear it
whisper past your ear,
Like my spirit.
As a simile...
Are you feeling me?
Are you fearing me?
You will be.
You need to be scared.
You need to be perpared to make a pinata from hornet's nest,
Because, yes...
This is going to sting.
This is going to be that thing you wished you'd never discovered,
This is going to be those covers that warms your restless empty...
Don't tempt me...
I have not yet begun to fight.
I am writing the first of a million poems that will chase you through the night,
That will find you where you sleep and keep you warm until light breaks,
And you take off, running for safety,
But lately it's been getting harder to hold this in.
I'm only telling you to run,
'Cause I know you can't win.
You can't stop me from making your life better,
You can't keep me from making you believe.
You need to run home a burn every last love letter and just leave.
Maybe it's ok for you to be lonely,
And maybe your insecurities are right,
But don't dare me to make you fall in love with me.
Because I just might.
I've got secrets like the art of the covenent,
And I know you are loving it now but...
This is going to take you to a place you've never felt.
Close your eyes and don't even look at it...
(This one's gonna make you melt...)
