Under the stars…

Running in the blazing sun
body sweating and mind numb with grief
life running behind
trying to catch me
I am calling death 
as it is running away from life

Rains falling on the dry land
hitting my face fiercely 
I keep running 
life has slowed down
death looks like stopping
as the moon lights up my face

Winds flowing ferociously 
beating the eyes
I am still running
to keep the body warm
life caught me and I caught death
Together we slept, under the stars.
