Painfully aware, of all my peers The pain, the pressure, creates real fears
Trying to escape so many eyes and ears Over thinking so much, my mind is seared
Afraid of the judgment, so my voice has no sound Dodging harsh eyes, so MY eyes find the ground
This lingering emotion, I cannot define They say mind over matter, but I say matter over mind
I'm running from something, I jump into my dream In that happy place, I can be exactly what I seem
I finally understand what this emotion must mean Because I figured out what I'm running from... I'm Running From Me
- by Jacquelyn Upton58
Trees, trees, trees Branches, sticks, leaves Whipping, gashing, slashing at my arms I can't get away no matter how fast I run
Tripping, falling, crawling on the floor Ragged cuts, tattered clothes, jagged breathing as I start to slow My eyes are heavy, my vision blurred Distant images start to stir
He's right behind me, he's catching up I have to keep moving, but my legs have had enough Getting dizzy, about to pass out, a distant figure starts to stand out A distant scream, a whispered plea, I can't believe it came from me
Pulse is racing, a feeling of hands, a gentle hush as I'm helped to stand It's him, he's caught me, please strength don't leave me yet Let me be anything but his sullied pet I have to leave, I have to get away, I fall to my knees and let my head sway
Stopping, he stares at me and gives a mirrored laugh Then he reaches for me as I start to move back I'm to slow, he's to fast, I can't get away, he's taking me back I can't let this happen, I must react
Head's too fuzzy, I'm getting too weak I'm stumbling over my own feet One chance, a pull, a twist, a pop and a moan I'm not the one with a broken bone
I'm still running, he's still coming My strength's about to give out Dead end, cliffs end, water and rocks below Tell me, if you had a choice which way would you go?
