Running from Thunder

Thunder rumbles in the distance
And I look up confused, it was sunny just a minute ago.
Dark clouds come closer and
Lightning flashes cause the clouds to look angrier.

The rain starts and
I turn away and run.
At a full sprint the rain feels like knives on my skin.
Tears start to come up and I try to push them down
But it is to late they pour down like rivers.

I am splashing through every puddle and with
Each time I get little more wet.

My long hair slaps my back every step I take.
My Heart is a constant drum beating on my chest
My lungs are in so much pain that breathing seems impossible
And
My legs are getting too weak to carry me.

How much further will I be able to go?
Not much is what I decide on, right before
I collapse.
You can not run away from THUNDER.
