The sun stings my eyes
I can feel my unprotected feet
padding against the leaves
my feet feel numb though
as if my legs move uncontrolably
I do not choose if I stop
forever running from the inevitable
my heart races;
more so, whatever's left of it
a horrible pain in my stomach
eating away at me
yet, I don’t stop
the world around me is spinning
yet I do not slow down
a burning sting aches my throat
have I been screaming?

My fists are clenched
I need to be destructive right now
& I don’t think about the consequences
I just want to burn everything down
& dance in the soft ashes
But no.
I can’t allow myself to do that.
To hurt
People
I suppose I’ll get lost (although mentally, I already am)
But I will continue running
& nobody will ever wonder where I went
Or maybe they’ll notice
They just wont give a fuck
& maybe that’s why I’m so messed up
My entire life
Nobody has EVER
Given a fuck.
But what do I care?
They can judge me
& never give me a second thought
I’d rather stay hidden
Unknown
That’s the way things are supposed to be
Suddenly
I am exhausted
My legs give out
& I fall into a shallow pond
& before I pass out
I get one last glimpse of myself
In the shallow pool of reflections
Through tears, & only through tears
Can we see who we truly are.
& now I wish
I wish I could’ve realized this sooner
Maybe somebody would have actually cared
But no
It’s too late
And now
Engulfed in darkness

I wonder where you are.
