After a Run

Knees wobbly like jelly,
the air wears thin,
repeatedly throws a black
blanket over the eyes.

I could have run faster,
again I say to myself, yet,
too late, the run is over
and you've forgotten

how you've cursed and sweated
buckets and buckets,
the heart a bird encaged,
struggled to be free.

P.S.: On a high after finishing the Tiong Bahru Challenge, but tired.
