When I Run

Updated on December 11, 2017

The golden fingers fondle my skin,

Jading yet dulcet warmth spreading in.

My legs and arms hold a common link,

Moving with the blistering pace and thorough sync.

The tepid wind whistles and greets my face,

Gushing past me the moment I increase my pace.

Decorated is my forehead with ticklish shining beads,

But reminding me of the more in number and success it leads.

Pounding of my heart echo's aloud in my ears,

Taking in heavy breaths as if fighting the deadliest fears.

The sensation felt is strong and appealing,

When the fire within me ignites with the feeling.

Leaving behind every rue I try to heal,

Moving towards the new is what I feel.

Chin held up and holding determination in eyes,

I swift towards finishing line cos that's where my desire lies.

The feel of goosebumps is an ecstatic fun,

And that's the way I feel 'When I Run'.

There's no better friendship than that of your legs and arms when you run.
There's no better friendship than that of your legs and arms when you run.
There's no better friendship than that of your legs and arms when you run.

When your legs can't run anymore, run with your heart.

As said by an Olympic gold medalist from Czech Republic, Long Distance Running - 'Emil Zatopek' : "An athlete cannot run with money is his pockets. He must run with hope in his heart and dreams in his head."

Same applies for all the running lovers.

        A simple but nice poem. Walking and running are the two exercises which are undertaken by many across the globe. It is really enjoyable to have them in early mornings amid the calmness of nature.

        The poem has depicted it profoundly. Good reading.

        I loved reading this, or more positively, absorbing it! I loved to run; many days I ran ten miles and felt so fulfilled when I was through, but my heart would not let me continue. After 4 heart attacks, I stopped, but I still relish the feeling running gave me, and your poem took me back in time, so please continue running and writing. God Bless you!

        Just an overall great refreshing feeling you get out of this running read. It almost wants to to go outside to run cool running

        I loved your poem. Running has never been my strong point. I do lots of walking though.
