a poem that means nothing but panic:
i ran and ran and ran.
and when i couldn't run, there was a fear that set in that maybe:
running was everything i had.
or everything i wanted.
i couldn't think about anything but the tigers behind me.
or maybe i wasn't running from them.
maybe i was running for them.
maybe i wanted to give them something to remember me by
and it wasn't going to be back there.
maybe they weren’t even there and they were a shitty metaphor i use
to make myself feel better when i just need to run.
im not sure what this poem means but
i think the writing it is the important part.
