Daily Prompt: Spike

Each spike on my running shoes dogged into the grass as I ran.

Away from all the moments of pain



Hoping once I’m done the feeling of being overwhelmed would be over.

I run faster as the feeling of peace washes over me.

I fight back the feeling of giving up and push myself to the point of breaking.

And before my heart spikes any higher then possible.

I take a breath and get some water and cool down on my walk back to reality.
