Squeak Squeak Squeak

I am running Faster

And Faster


...Creak Creak Creak

This rust bucket's wheels’ squeal

The never ending grind

Grrr… the grrrride,


Grating against my ears

Beating against my heart

Squeak Squeak Squeak

I am running Longer

And Longer


...Creak Creak Creak

The hamster wheels’ scroop

Silence my sympathic shriek

Viva le grité,


A growling boiling up my throat

A bonfire bubbling out of my heart

Squeak Squeak Squeak

I am becoming Ghostlier

Gossamer glossed over


But Beauty stayed with the brakes

The overworn warm tires’ screeched

The world’s spinning to a grinding halt

Her Glow,


Greeting a new world in my mind

Beating strongly with my heart
