a poem that means nothing but panic:


i ran.

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.
