Running around in circles,
jumping over the hurdles,
recovering from many struggles,
hoping for a little snuggle.

Being down for something,
a spark that heart is missing,
while filling this emptiness,
with beautiful distractions.

Standing at the crossroads,
viewing self as a bystander,
observing the place I am in,
introspecting through my existence.

Running, running though the way,
peeking a dream world over the hedge,
with a bit of admiration and envy,
deep longing approaches like a wave.

In this contemplation,
lost in my deep thoughts,
as the music played with beats,
this rhythm is what I need.

Forgetting present situation,
my entity and desposition,
floating inside this vacuum (mind),
in the magic of the song.
