A/N: This is based on a weird idea of mine about Houndoom feeling extreme pain or even dying when exposed to sunlight (vampire-like, you know). It's probably not true, and I don't really believe it myself, but I like this poem, so meh. Basically, the story behind it is that this Houndoom in particular has to go out into the open a lot and hunt there all night, so he has to run very quickly when he sees the sun is rising.
Disclaimer: I don't need it, not a single Pokémon is mentioned in the poem anyway. But since I mentioned it in the Author's Note, OK: I don't own Pokémon, or Houndoom, but I do own that odd idea unless it's somehow official and I haven't noticed. o.O
On the Run
Run and run,
away from the sun,
away from its rays,
away from the days.
Running away from the rays of the sun,
away from my death I am forced to run.
Chasing the night,
I flee from the light,
the sunrise so bright,
with all of my might.
Running away from the red of the dawn,
I am and will always be destiny’s pawn.
I pant in the dark;
the run left its mark.
There’s blood on my paws,
drenching my claws.
Running away from the rage of the light,
knowing I’m stuck in a hopeless fight.
I’m all out of breath,
awaiting my death.
The sun will soon rise;
that orb I despise.
I failed to survive so my fate was sealed;
soon my pain will be over, my wounds will be healed…
