I ran away. 

Away from that sad place,
 
Where I played ball games,
 
With the boy named Tommy,
 
Who lived a room away from mine. 
 
And the tall teaching building,
 
Where he ended his life,
 
By jumping down like a butterfly,
 
Splashing on the ground a crimson red. 
 
So I ran away,
 
In the midnight when people were sleeping,
 
Those drifting souls in the dark void. 
 
They didn't see me as I crawled away,
 
Away from that sad place.
